Yesterday I read an interesting article on io9 - a collection of quotes from George Martin, where he talks about what makes a good writer. He says writers are either "Architects" or "Gardeners". Martin sees himself as a gardener, he plants the seeds of his characters and watches them grow, never quite sure what they will turn into. That's the mark of a good writer. Gardeners are good.

The Chung Kuo series had started as a grand sweeping narrative of political intrigue mixed with adventure thriller. It also included psychological studies nd romance, all adding pieces to the overall intrigue. By the end it became a confused mess. This volume, #6 of 9 [as planned] or of 8 [as actually published], illustrates the gradual devolution. Many parts, mostly those involving the plots surrounding Emily Ascher, hark back to what made the first three volumes great. Others, especially the M ...more

Picking this book up where I left off, back in the mists of time, the characters and situations flew back to me as they appeared and I renewed my alliances and distrusts. Wingrove has woven a tapestry of many parts and they all begin to come together here. The ending was of a somewhat fortuitous nature but I forgive this indiscretion as it brings us to the next stage of the epic. Maybe one day I'll read all the books in swift succession so I don't "forget" some of the impotant developments. Book ...more

The vision was grand but the execution was poor. The series continued to chart a course without a rudder. Technically brilliant but the book didn't gel for me and the ending was ridiculous. For a few years it didn't see like this series would even be continued but I'm happy to see that it has. Maybe we'll have the old David Windgrove magic back in the next volume.

I enjoyed the change in perspective in regards to the Clay, but the books still feel like a collection of vignettes instead of a clear narrative. I enjoy it, but sometimes the plotting gets a bit listless. Taking a break for now, but will return to finish the series soon.
