really liked it

I loved The Caryatids. I found the editing a bit rough at the start, but I guess the editor found their red pen and fixed everything else up.

I mostly enjoyed the big concepts at play in this story - and the title, of course. I thought Stirling efficiently reduced the world into three major political ideologies at odds with each other and the fact that he represented those ideas using clones (so many clones) shows his creativity and mastery of craft.

I found the story engaging and the stakes as high as they could possibly be. I'd recommend it to any sci-fi fan. Also, I should note that this is the only Stirling novel I've read, although I did try to read the Difference Engine years ago but couldn't get into it (and William Gibson is one of my favorite authors!)
