5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable. It's a word., 10 Oct 2006
This review is from: Coyote: The Coyote Series: Book One (Paperback)
I really cannot understand why this book (and the trilogy as a whole for that matter) has been taking such a beating in the reviews. I thought it was outstanding.

The fact that this book is based on a number of short stories is obvious at some points, if only because a lot of facts are over stated unnecessarily, presumably to 'set the scene' and enable readers to read these short stories individually without needing to read earlier ones. I feel a little better editing could have rectified this, but it's such a small flaw in an otherwise incredible book that it's barely worth mentioning.

Maybe it's also a testament to Steele's writing ability that these short stories work on their own and as part of a generation spanning trilogy?

I feel that far too much SF these days is ridiculous and too unbelievable (I know, it is fiction after all) but this book and series gives you something that you can actually imagine happening. It doesn't bombard you with gobbledegook science, it just tells an exciting, imaginative and often emotional story.

The phrase 'I could not put this book down' is an overused one, but I literally couldn't, and had finished the 3 books in the series in about 10 days.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
