This review is from: Stone (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Good intelligent prose without becoming too wordy...Adam Roberts has written this completely from the perspective of the main character and manages to vividly capture and draw you into his state of mind. its a bit of a cliche but i flew through this book in about 2 weeks even though i usually only limit myself to reading during my 20 minute bus ride to work.
the only other adam roberts book i have ready is gradisil and although i also thoroughy enjoyed that book, this one was much more traditional sci-fi orientated and not as dark.
there are leaning towards iain m banks in terms of the dark humour. maybe i haven't read as much sci-fi as some of the other reviewers but i found the story very original and completely captivating. if you like writers like iain m banks, alistair reynolds and ken macleod i think you'll like this one.
