This review is from: Terminal World (Paperback)
Not one of his best. It took me a while to realise what was not working for me - then it came to me. I simply didn't care about what happened. I didn't really find any of the characters engaging and the story took far too long to really get going.
I don't even think it really came to a particularly satisfying ending.
I'm sure it isn't the case, but to me it had the feel of 'contract fulfiller' - one written to meet a contractual obligation, more than anything else.
I generally like Alastair's work - a great deal - but I couldn't warm to this one at all.
You can't win them all, I guess.
