This novel had a little of everything for me. Mystery, sci-fi, gumshoe detective and a good plot. Even if you are not a sci-fi fan, I believe you would still enjoy this story.
I loved the main character who is the police detective who is killed in the beginning of the novel and is reborn as a "Reeb" which is now the most hated minority in NYC known in the future at Necropolis. The story revolves around these "reborn" people who come back after death and age in the opposite direction by youthing out of existance. Very original premise with a large congolomerate run by the female villian who is behind the entire process.
Highly recommended. Mr. Dempsey paints a excellent picture of the future in 50 years from now along with many references to current day which helps make the story more believable. It will keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
I have not read the print version therefore I cannot answer this question.
With the different subplots and the addition of meeting Vic's family, I found the story hard to put down. It provided background on her character and how Walt interacts with them. Also, we have more background on his relationship with his daughter Katie.
The careful interchange between the characters. He brings them to life with his inflections and how they interact with each other.
Its hard to go unnoticed when you are in a powder blue vintage convertible with a Cowboy, Indian, Brunette and a dog inside.
I started reading these after watching and loving the Longmire series on television. As we always say, the books are much better.
Yes, it is quite long, but I feel that was necessary to build up characters, background on the aliens, and work through each scene. I know many have complained of the length of the saga, but I find that the most enjoyable. The worlds and characters are so well developed that I don't mind that its long. (Game of Thrones fan here.)
My favorite by all accounts has to be Paula Miyo(sp?) and Melanie. He explores their weaknesses and through both books takes us though their character development. This sci-fi has a detective story, love story and many triangles going on at the same time, besides the action that is occuring. I also enjoy the Ozzie character with all his quirky-ness.
Since I am still working on the second book - I can't give that detail yet.
There have been several moments that kept my mind racing even when I put the earbuds down. It makes you want to go back and listen more just to see what happens next.
Highly recommended. I have noticed its taking me time to get through both books, so the audible points keep adding up! I will be listening to more Peter Hamilton - he's a good storyteller.
This story makes me want to go back at rewatch all the past Star Trek episodes. The wit is hilarious and the plot totally crazy. The whole premise of the book will keep you in stitches as the story develops. Also, it highlights just how bad televised entertainment truely is.
Doll was my favorite although I enjoyed Duvall's character just as much. Both their wit and comebacks to the different situations that they encounter.
When Fitz dies and his last words are "this is ridiculous." Gotta love it.
To go back to where no man has gone before..
