Top Customer Reviews
Jon Courtenay Grimwood has written a wee cracker of a book that just serves to illustrate that UK SF is not hidebound by the straightjacket of past success.
Characters that live a life that's within an up to the minute, fast paced technothriller and who grab you by the balls and wont let go.
If I have any reservations... the writing is maybe not as polished as some of his counterparts. This is a first novel though. Buy it and the subsequent books if you like your fiction to be entertaining and fun.
Who does he compare too? Well, I'd suggest Gibson, Sterling and Stephenson, but closer to Stephenson's crackin' Snow Crash than the others.
Be warned if you go for the Kindle edition it has a number of irritating typos although I was willing to over look this as the author seems to have made the effort to get this book published in the format so fans of his later work can go back to where he started and as the book is only priced at £1.49 I can forgive it a few typos.
Overall although I like the writing style I cant recommend this book I nearly gave up on it halfway through and dont feel like I would have missed anything if I had. This author has far better work than this available.
