I’m no wordy critic so I’ll keep it simple. If you like well thought out and well written space opera this is for you. If you like your future tech to have at least some plausibility not straying too far from the laws of physics and an extremely interesting glimpse of how us humans might socially connect with each other; this is for you. If you like your humour dark, cynical and relevant; this is for you.
A highly recommended and enjoyable page turner.
Fantastic read (as was the first installment - slabscape reset), the writing is fantastic with some cracking humour. Really enjoyed the characters but for me what steals the show is Slab itself. What a setting. What an imagination our author here has.
Can't recommend this series enough. And for slabsake, please write and release the third book! Please!
The setting and "hard" sci-fi elements with grand scale is pure Peter F. Hamilton, with a small amount of Alastair Reynolds' interesting story twisting and 'exotic' stuff. The rapid assimilation and synthesizing of new tech to evolve solutionsto counter alien threats is straight out of E.E. Doc Smith, and makes for a great read without the pages and pages of exposition which you might get from 'harder' sci-fi authors. It was a nice change of pace, and harkened back to 'good old days' of sci-fi. The wonderful interplay of AIs and Humans has a wonderful heritage that I feel sources from the brilliant works of Isaac Asimov, too, playing with their inner turmoil about their own condition and relationship to their creators. All-in-all, this combination makes for the kind of wonderful sci-fi ensemble, but without the horror/scary future, allowing you to sit back, read, and enjoy the book without fearing that bad things are going to happen.
Where the book loses its star is in a few areas which did get under my skin a little: I think some of the 'science' needs a tad more research..Read more ›
Easy to get in to and follow
There are some great concepts, and they mostly fit together well. The problem I think is that the author has too many ideas and has got carried away with trying to cram them all in. This book felt a little rushed. The characters, apart from Louie, are fairly shallow and to an extent samey, and the ending was a little too pat.

I really enjoyed this book and, while I can see why people draw parallels with Douglas Adams, Spencer has a definite style of his own which is a really good thing. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Amazon Customer
