A short but very interesting read and enjoyable as you'd expect from this author. I do hope he continues with these characters to bring a couple more book. Just in case...I would like to say a big thank you for bringing this out as an eBook!!

I found this quite a good read, it's fairly short but a good page turner and seemed to me to be good value for money. Actually I read a couple of Neal Asher's other books and I have to say that I landed up preferring this one.

Great short story. The anti-hero main character is well drawn and the story is imaginative and set in a future universe which is alien but believable. Would like to read more about this character and follow the storyline back to earth.

I love Neal Asher's books and this one I had missed somehow. A good read with well developed characters the only 'flaw' being it is too short!! If you don't know the author this is an excellent 1st read.

I've read many of this authors novels set in the Polity and enjoyed them immensely. This short story was no exception.

It tells the story of the character, Snow, and his life on a desert world.

Unusually for a Neal Asher book, the ending it's genuinely happy, it could even be called a love story.

Classic Asher style made this a rip roaring ride from beginning to end. A must for completists, fans will identify with the plot and characters from the first paragraph whilst even those unfamiliar with Neal's work will enjoy the pure exhuberance of the journey. Familiarity with the genre means the story feels somewhat workmanlike and unoriginal but for the newcomer, curiosity about Asher's universe will undoubtedly be piqued.

Don't get me wrong, I like Asher and most of his works, but this is a very very short story and has already been published with a collection of other stories by Asher called - "The Gabble and Other Stories (Polity)" This kindle edition sells for £0.46 and is definitely worth the money. Having said that "Snow in the Desert" is a good short story, I wish it had been a bit longer but it was entertaining enough. Do yourselves a favor and get the collection, much better value.

Good way to kill a few hours, I bought it and read it on my phone while on a long train journey.
