A futuristic tour... Around the American Midwest?,
This review is from: Final Days (Paperback)
Gary Gibson is starting to get into the habit of creating awe inspiring futuristic settings and vast star-spanning societies... Only to restrict you to the least interesting corner of them!
In Final Days earth is at the centre of a vast wormhole network that stretches across time and space.... And where is a good chunk of the book set? The rural, semi-deserted mid-west of the USA. Like in Empire of Light, the backdrop is so tantalising... But Gary Gibson seems unsure of how to integrate this amazing future vista into his actual story - which has been mundane and border-line boring on both recent novels.
Early novels were very good - and Mr Gibson can certainly write. But please, drop the stodge and let us out into these worlds you've created!
