's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, kindle

A sexy romp over the self-destructive progress of neo-gnostics set in the context of a science-fiction spy thriller. A perfect, earthly climax to the Space Trilogy and the most brilliant English novel I've read.


Finished again early in 2015. It's fiction that makes the real world more important.


Reread in 2016 with the ECS board and in preparation for a talk about it at the Raggant Fiction Festival. Still fantastic.
