  • Journey Beyond Imagination

    A genuinely spellbinding book! I found myself engrossed on two fantastic levels: First, the incredible intricacy and rich tapestry of the story itself. I felt that I was reading three or four very good and splendidly interwoven stories all at the same time. Secondly, I was absorbed by the incredible use of the English language, where at times dwarfed (but didn't obliterate) parts of the story itself.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Really?

    After really enjoying Player of Games, I was keen to give another of his books a go. However, after what was a strong start, weaving different threads of the story... I soon found myself wondering where this story was going. It was all over the place... too many tangents that didn't really contribute any value. I struggled towards the end, but persisted, hoping it would get better and finish strong. But sadly, no. I was left disappointed at what could have been a satisfying completion to the story, tying up a number of threads that had developed for some time. Instead, it was as if the author had a deadline to meet with his publisher and decided just to end it. I'm sure the author has other good books in the series... and maybe I will read another sometime. But for now, I think I will go find a good Peter F Hamilton book to help me restore my faith in SciFi.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Consider Phlebas an astounding good read

    I must admit I raced through sections of the book as it took me on a roller coaster ride of suspense and tense excitement. Intergalactic espionage and intrigue at its best.

  • Amazing space opera!

    Enjoyable sci fi book from start to finish, the pace of the book is a nice constant which slightly slows towards the end to tie up important plot endings. The action is vibrant and imaginative. A very believable tale from across the stars. Looking forward to reading the next Culture novel!
