Sampling the first chapter and having a rough time immersing myself in KSR's continent. (I had similar difficulties with Robinson's RED MARS **). The sci is ok but the plot/story is dull and incredulous.

A great 3-part series f

Hollowman Hollowman said: " There is simply way too much wrong with this novel. I don't want to go too much into it here -- see others' reviews, on GR, Amazon, etc.
Perhaps MY main beef is: Birmingham goes way overboard on techno-babble and handwavium. Dunno why, other than -- m

“We're forever teetering on the brink of the unknowable, and trying to understand what can't be understood.”
Isaac Asimov, The Caves of Steel

Michael Crichton
“This is the gift of your species and this is the danger, because you do not choose to control your imaginings. You imagine wonderful things and you imagine terrible things, and you take no responsibility for the choice. You say you have inside you both the power of good and the power of evil, the angel and the devil, but in truth you have just one thing inside you - the ability to imagine.”
Michael Crichton, Sphere
