A Good Read But Over-Complicated
on 19 August 2017
It was interesting to read these reviews, as I caught up with Critical Mass three years late. Like some other reviewers I've read all the books in this series, and like a minority of them I was a little disappointed, both by the convoluted plot, unnecessary complications and physics-speak, but also by a hint of formulaism which led me easily to predict what was coming next on more than one occasion. This - well, the complication problem though not the formulaism - may be partly my fault as I read the book over the space of a couple of weeks, not avidly and at length as I normally do. Anyway, now the two succeeding books now await me, and my qualified enthusiasm for this book in no way assuages the keenness of my anticipation as I place this book on the 'read' shelves and extract Brush Back to take its place.
