Such a let down.,
This review is from: Garden Of Rama (Paperback)
I don't normally feel compelled to write reviews, however I will make an exception for Garden of Rama which is a phenomenal let down compared to the first two Rama Books.
Rendevouz with Rama is excellent, pure science fiction that's entertaining and easy to read.
Rama 2 is co written by Gentry Lee and while it's not as good as the first book, has some excellent parts and despite some overly convoluted character backgrounds is still a worthwhile read.
Garden of Rama is sadly a complete mess. Apart from the first quarter, sci fi has gone out of the window and has been replaced with confusing characters, convoluted background information. Full of laughable and thoroughly unlikeable characters, the book turns into a complete mess and frankly I'm not going to bother with the fourth book because of how poor I found Garden of Rama to be.
Sad as this had the potential to have been a very good book.
Read the first two books and stop there.
