Best if read in comic voices.,
This review is from: Time (Paperback)
Does this man have an editor? The dialogue between the main female character and the standard 'all-wise' God-Scientist character (Morpheus,/Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever/Lobsang from the 'Long Earth') goes like this:
"I don't understand!"
"You don't understand!"
Repeated with slight variations as page filler until it becomes a book-shutter. If you listen to the audio version, the unintentionally ham-actor voices conjure up a drag act.
Like Robert Heinlein, this author is highly embarrassing when he attempts to write a stream of married life emotional interest into a nuts'n-bolts sci-fi book. [Which Heinlein book had all the 'fanny-patting' lines?]. Some good ideas, the super-squids etc. Some dull nonsense, the 'indigo kids' or as he writes them 'blue kids' should have been cut. A book spoiled by poor writing.
