4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read 27 Nov. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read Davies silo saga (and highly recommend it). Because of that I dove right in to Binary Cycle.

Originally I bought part one of Binary Cycle and then waited for the full story to come out which I've now read in its entirety. Overall it is a well written story with characters you can empathize with. The only real problem i have with this book is the occasional repetition of information. Dont get me wrong, it only happened a few times but enough that it bothered me. I imagine it's a case where the repetition served as memory joggers between the serial installments and were not edited out when the parts were combined into the full story. Will this bother you too? Maybe, maybe not. It bothered me because it's useless repetitive information that serves a purpose when the installments are separated but not when joined.

Aside from that nit, I really did like the story overall and felt it had a unique flavor for a space colonization story. Should you pick it up? Yes, I think you should.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good concept, strong start, but could use more finesse in the last two parts of this novel 9 Sept. 2014
By kaw - Published on Amazon.com

My first encounter with WJ Davies was reading his fan fiction Silo Submerged (which is based on Hugh Howey's Wool Omnibus). I found the Davies set of Silo stories very intriguing so I thought I'd try Binary Cycle next. I originally only read the first part (Disruption) which I found engaging and I was disappointed at the time to realize the other two parts hadn't been published. Now that I've been able to read all three of the stories together, I am honestly a little let down with the last two parts - Revelations and Skyward. I lost interest shortly after beginning Revelations and struggled to get through the rest of the novel (although I wanted to finish because the concept as a whole had promise). I think the last two books felt a bit rushed and disjointed - without enough time put into character development, emotional ties, and other elements that may help the reader relate to and become more invested in the characters. The story got somewhat choppy especially when describing the battle scenes, and I just couldn't get invested in how they were described or the interactions between characters. The concept for the novel as a whole had a lot of promise though - so despite this one being somewhat rough around the edges, I'll certainly give his other books a chance.
5.0 out of 5 stars Binary Cycle is....Really good. 13 Aug. 2014
By Preston Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I first learned about WJ Davies through his story Empathy For Andrew in The Robot Chronicles. I was completely blown away by the story and knew that I had to read his other stories. Binary Cycle is a really good book from an author that will be a household name soon. Don't think about buying the book, just go ahead and do it. You will not regret it. I really enjoyed the book. I am completely satisfied by the ending but wouldn't be disappointed if he ever decided to continue the story. Do yourself a favor and dive head first into this crazy world of Indie Writers.

I enjoyed the start of the book and the concepts which the author introduced which made the book science fiction,however I think the main characters could have been developed more and the ending was a bit bland.I can see that there may be a sequel to the book which was left open ended and hopefully more description and development of the characters will ensue if there is a sequel. I would read the sequel if one is written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Binary Cycle is the perfect marriage of ... 29 July 2014
By Sophia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Binary Cycle is the perfect marriage of hard and soft science fiction; and will truly appeal to classic science fiction readers who grew up on Asimov and Bradbury.

The world of Taran is unforgettable; you will care about this planet, its people, the landscape, its future, even the creatures that may inhabit your dreams for awhile. You will also care about, like, and relate to the characters. They're so well done that I hate to even write about them in such a coldly objective fashion.

What it is not is a book you will be able to read straight through. You will have to stop, step away and go for a walk, a snack, or anything else that will let your adrenaline subside just for a bit. Then, just a few pages later, it will have to be put in your lap for a moment while you think about something one of the people in the story just said or did. You might have to take a break to marvel at the fact that a paragraph just described you, the reader, in your heart of hearts, your ideas, maybe describing even the "arcane language of pops and cracks" of your physical self. There is not an extraneous word written, yet the author captures entire essences of a person or concept with incredibly well-chosen and perfectly crafted lines. The empathy for and identification with each character, young, old, male or female (or even alien) makes for a fabulous read.

And yes! There is the most excellent science and futuristic part upon which the story is crafted, thus the perfect marriage of hard and soft sci fi, and more. I think the author must be a very old soul indeed to have been able to create Binary Cycle.

I highly recommend this story, which will satisfy every reason, hope, and desire for which a reader picks up any book.
