I enjoyed the book but agree with this review in which it is noted, "Unfortunately, too much of Blackout is spent setting up the plot, and not enough giving us a sense of who the main characters are." In other words, lots of build up and then . . . . Well, "All Clear" is supposed to be better. Again, enjoyed it more when I started skimming.

Trunatrschild So it sucks compared to some of her other stuff?

Gsmattingly Well, not quite in the suck realm, but I'd certainly put it at the bottom of the list of those books by her which I have read. Just started All Clear, the second half (well, bit longer than half) of this very long novel.

Trunatrschild It just seems that she has never reached the heights of "The Doomsday Book" ever since.
