Customer Review

on 17 June 2002
I read The Salmon of Doubt with a little trepidation - the last part finished book I came across was The Dark Tower by C S Lewis, also a collection of excellent short stories and a sublime start to an unfinished novel (try it if you liked the 'Out of the Silent Planet' Trilogy or if you like SF shorts with really good twists). This time the experience was as frustrating but also much more rewarding.
Having just enough of the novel to whet ones appetite is a Bad Thing, unfinished novels are not to be recommended - just too upsetting when they stop. Particularly when they are just gathering speed and looking so very promising.
Having a good collection of other material is however Very Good Indeed. Knowing that there is no more to come from this thought provoking and generally wonderful human of the highest order is heartbreaking.
I enjoyed the diverse selection of articles and interviews tremendously and would indeed concur with Mr Fry about the sheer quality of the writing - to make it look this effortless takes real work and a good dose of genius.
An excellent read and another substantial part of DNA's memorial.
