This was a well crafted and action packed book - as you'd expect from Neal Asher - but I was reading it alongside Steven Pinker's "The Better Angels of Our Nature" which charts the incredible decline of violence in our society, and, unfortunately, that book kind of made Asher's personal, cynical political bias (which is bluntly and doggedly crowbarred into the narrative) seem tired and anachronistic. Don't get me wrong, I love a good dystopian novel, but I just got a bit sick of his pessimism, especially as he does the whole human/technology hybrid philosophy thing so well. But, saying all that, I was still hooked right into his narrative and devoured the story with great relish. And, unfortunately, I've now read all of his books and will just have to wait for more ...
