Worth reading but not collecting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Recursion (Paperback)
Ballantyre tells 3 loosely connected stories in 1 during this book via linked novelletes that are interspersed amongst each other - the sum definitely being greater than the parts would have been in isolation. It's an engrossing read the first time through as the `big ideas' are gradually leaked to the reader. However a second reading would be rather tedious since much of the enjoyablity is tied up with not knowing the outcome - and once this tension is defused, the actual action within the book is rather pedestrian.
Worth reading if you enjoy space/AI, but probably not the kind of book to join a limited permanent collection.
