5.0 out of 5 stars A new star, 24 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Equations Of Life: Metrozone Book 1 (Samuil Petrovitch Novels) (Paperback)
I'm now impatiently waiting for book 4. I hope there will be more...

I really enjoyed this trilogy; it was pacy, well-written and full of intriguing notions, with a slice of proper science.

The protagonist is an unlikely hero at first glance - he gets involved against his better judgement (admittedly, a well-worn SF film trope, from Han Solo to Captain Reynolds) and lives to regret it. As we progress, we discover under the grimy cynicism that rarest of things: a man of principle.

The dystopian near-future setting is believable, including a USA in full retreat from reason (a process already under way) and reminded me somewhat of Charlie Stross's oeuvre.

I couldn't put it down - I ploughed through all three books in well under 2 days.

Nicely-judged length, too- not too sparse, not over-padded; a good edit.

This is a new talent I will watch with interest.
