5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and rightly considered a classic, 23 Oct 2012
This review is from: Inverted World (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I recently decided to go through the famous list by David Pringle of his top 50 sci-fi books of the last fifty years, and of the ones I hadn't read this one appealed to me most, partly because of the concept and partly because of the promise of an excellent twist ending. I found it lived up to its premise and is rightly called a classic. The concept of a city being dragged through a barren land in order to keep up with something called the "optimum" was fascinating, but I especially liked the way the viewpoint switched in each part of the book, particularly in the final part where we discover the truth of everything. I won't say what happens but it was very well executed. One I would definitely recommend.
