It's a blog! Mainly of book reviews.
This third and final book in the Nova War sequence is a disappointment, mainly because, instead of improving further on the quality gains made in the second book, this one falls backward. Early on there is a major plot point that makes a horrendous continuity error and the book never really recovers. It also seems to lack any coherent message, unlike it's predecessors.
It's some time since I finished this book and I don't really have anything else to say about it. The fact is there are better writers of space opera amongst Gibson's contemporaries, even if all you want is an exciting thriller, and I would recommend you seek them out: Neal Asher, Peter F. Hamilton and Alastair Reynolds are all much better on the average.
