Mar 12, 2012

it was ok
bookshelves: sci-fi
Read from March 12 to 14, 2012

It felt chopped up and uneven in pace. The last chapter is exciting but also overdrawn. Apparently characterization is not his strong suite, and I can see why people say that, with a bunch of cardboard characters flitting in and out of scene with virtually no impact. Overall, the title is probably the best thing about it. Disappointing introduction to one of sci-fi's greatest. :/
