He changed his style from a journel of a single survivor to a typical format. He seemed to get out the cat in the hat Voom machine and sucked all the clutter away, just so he could get the series done.
The first two books were really good, but the last in the series was just OK.
At first I'm listening to this book and I'm, "What?" And then it's over.
I love this author, especially his great characters. I read Hyperion and listened to the rest of the series. This book was a great counter weight to the other works I've read and listened to so far.
This is the first book of this (three part series)?
Just as good as all his other books, which is just simply great. Characters, a mix of high and low tech, mixed with the Void's peculiar set of physical laws is interesting and entertaining.
Also the narrator John Lee makes this a sure thing to read or listen to.
I got this book on a sale, and it was well worth it. The main character start underground, and is about to be tested to see if he goes up or down a level in this underground world. No one moves between levels expect after the test. You can up or down depending on how smart one is.
I read the series of books backward, because they were on sale in that order. They were all great books. Had strong Christian overtones, but really didn't diminish the story at all. This book makes you think about the direction of the country, and society. Enjoy.
There are a lot of christian undertones in the novel, but you don't doubt the good men and women of faith. If you're a liberal, you'll probably hate it. If your a republican, you might not like it as you should. Federalists and libertarians, will love the book.
I'm "reading" the novels backward in order, and it doesn't seem to matter. It's a great series so far, can't wait to read the first book.
Alastair Reynolds is a great author. He's got a clean, concise style to all the books I've read from him. You shouldn't believe in the universe of this novel, but you do. I hate that he's probably smarter than I will ever be.
The book begins when the zombies first take over. It's great to listen to, how people deal with the impossible of the dead rising. Some live some die. I like the the "thinking" humans actually improve their situation, instead of being in a constant state of running.
Good book, from a female's point of view.
Another great book by Peter Clines. My version was screwed up with wrong voices for some of the characters, but you know, I enjoyed it anyway.
It went into more of a magical tone, and thought it would lose some of its hold on me, but it didn't. The series as a whole is a must buy.
I like zombie and end of the world books, but this is almost to realistic to be enjoyed. It's a book that makes you think afterward, and know how fragile our society is.
