Customer Review

on 1 February 2011
I read "Marrow" by accident and instantly became a fan, reading Sister Alice and The Well of Stars in quick succession. I didn't enjoy those quite as much as Marrow, but Down The Bright Way picks up some of the themes from Marrow (near-immortal humans, crazy technology etc.) and is similar to it in pace and expanse of ideas.
It sounds strange to say that SF can be criticised for not being believable, but for some reason there are reviewers that criticise this work on the basis of the concepts being "too far out there". That is Reed's greatest strength. More than any other SF author I've read, his books take you somewhere that I guarantee you will have never been before and if you're like me, you'll be eager to go there again. This is exactly how I felt reading this one.
