it was ok
bookshelves: sci-fi, indifferent, 2009-read

This was a sloooooooow read for me. I finally finished it, and all I came away with is "meh". It wasn't a terrible book, but it wasn't good either. It fits into the same category as Niven's Ringworld for me - the ideas presented were cool and unique, but the story itself was not compelling and most of the characters were uninteresting.

Bill Purdy Seeing as I haven't read a single page of Darkness since August, I probably won't be reading this one any time soon.

Danielle Yeah... I obviously don't recommend it. I'm going to write a more descriptive review soon as I get my home computer is back up and running. Motherboard crapped out on me :(
