really liked it
Recommended for: fans of dark sci fi

The surreal hyjinks continue in Reynold's apocalyptic epic. Adding propaganda dreams, fetus cops, hyperpigs, orwellian governments, and the terrifying inertia engines(trust me this is true horror), and a doomy cosmic scope. Some how five hundred pages is riddled with tension. Don't compare with pieces of crap like Orson Scott Card, rather Mieville,M.John Harrison, or Swanwick

Szplug Adam, would you say that you thought this was better than Revelation Space?

Adam I think I would.

Szplug Thanks. RS was great fun, but I had some problems with it nonetheless. I'm happy to hear he not only didn't suffer any sophomore jinx, but improved upon his excellent start.
