Review

"Engrossing..."Blue Remembered Earth" is, ultimately, a collection of conflicting 'isms' individualism, collectivism, romanticism, capitalism, expansionism, escapism. The ability to integrate such competing notions into a stable narrative speaks to the ideological power of the best SF; it also demonstrates Reynolds's genre mastery....More importantly, the projected series--and the work Reynolds has yet to produce--will tell us much about the state of SF in the early twenty-first century."--"Los Angeles Review of Books"
"Reynolds both develops a richly detailed portrait of a resurgent, postapocalyptic Earth society and economy, and leaves himself plenty of room to expand his narrative space exponentially...If Reynolds can keep this up--and there's enough planted here for future volumes to already suggest that he can--he might have one of the most enjoyable series of the still-young decade."--"Locus"
"As my number one SF writer of the '00s, any novel or story by Alastair Reynolds is a must...As speculation about a mid 2100s Earth and nearby solar system, "Blue Remembered Earth" is simply unrivaled in recent SF and if only for that and the novel is a top 25 of mine...A compulsive read that you do not want to put down...If you want to understand why SF at its best is still the most interesting form of literature today, "Blue Remembered Earth" [is the place] to go."--"Fantasy Book Critic"
