A truly fantastic book by Reynolds and a fantastic performance by Lee. I have read/heard most of Reynolds' books and this might be my favorite one so far.
I had no expectations when i started this book. It was recommended to me by a friend of a friend. It started slow and it built to an amazing crescendo. Highly recommend. The book makes you think and you continue to think even weeks after finishing.
I haven't read it in physical format.
Campion. He's a strong character and totally unflappable, but when you get his perspective that isn't always the case. Although almost a little too perfect of a protagonist.
Characters were unique and identifiable and he helped me get lost in the story. Slightly more interesting than Pushing Ice but that may simply be due to content.
The aside story about palacial was quite memorable.
New ideas in sci fi and very refreshing. Still has my mind wandering back to it weeks later.
Tell me about hard sci fi books!
humanity's cosmic future
Campion - didn't Reynolds want this to be our favorite character. He is too cool, kind of an outcast, but he is in love.
British Accents. The way he enunciates character names inspired me to try to mimic his british accent. I would be in the shower saying character names in a deep British accent.
It makes me want to be an astronaut
I had to put the playback speed to .5 - I found the reading cadence to be a bit faster than most books.
