A unique rendering of time and space travel. This is a carefully crafted book with many interesting characters and a clever backstory. I liked it most for its foreignness. It was a completely unpredictable and wondrous journey. I recommend this book because it gave me new ways of seeing. I loved the shatterling concept, the male and female as fragments of a larger self, and the machine as arbiter of trust and friendship
It's good - worth it! However it seems like its part of series - :( which maybe would have helped managing my expectations -- I wanted pay off got some but not enough
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.
Somehow you never know who to trust or love till it's too late and that has s kind of exquisite bitter sweet feeling.
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.
