Biotech Noir - almost at it's best,
This review is from: Paradox (Nulapeiron 1) (Paperback)
This is biotech noir almost at it's best. The writing style is such that at least I just could follow the story, a little more obtuse and it would just have been a mishmash of words. As it is, Paradox keeps you guessing, but not too hard, a feeling of understanding what it's all about does appear even if it's not written outright. But it is a relatively difficult book, and probably incomprehensible to new SF readers. The story is partially the classic about a boy with extraordinary talents who climbs to the top. But it's then it starts to get interesting, the middle of the book is the best. I think Paradox is slightly uneven, but John Meaney is definintely an author to watch for the future, if the writing gets a little more polished great things will happen!
