5.0 out of 5 stars Revisiting an all-time classic, 9 Feb 2011
By 
This review is from: Song of Heaven: Chung Kuo Book 1 (Kindle Edition)
As a long standing fan of the Chung Kuo series, I have been waiting desperately for well over a year to get my hands on The Son of Heaven and it did not disappoint! It was never going to be easy to go back and try to refashion an opening for this massive world-building endeavor, especially in the light of the current economic climate and the constant stream of information that continues to befuddle expectations. I found myself questioning the various propositions set forth in the opening few chapters from the perspective of what is currently going on, but as I read on, the more I got engrossed in Wingrove's masterful storytelling and characters, and the less I cared about how it all came to be. I cannot wait for the next installment and going back and revisiting the entire series! Chung Kuo is one of the best epic stories of science fiction, imho, and I could not recommend it highly enough. I am just happy that I will not have to scour used book stores for extra copies to give to friends anymore :)
