Terminal World indifferent reviews
« on: March 22, 2010, 04:00:30 AM »
I have read some indifferent reviews of Terminal World by Alastair Reynolds.

Should I wait for the cheaper(er) paperback to buy this, or is it worth getting now in hardback and splashing the cash?

I'm quite poor at the moment!

Ive just read it and quite enjoyed it.

Not sure about him trying to do some steampunk elements tho, felt like he was just cashing in at that point but the rest of the book is done to a high standard.

It was good and I'd definitely recommend it to any sci-fi fan, but I felt it was rather open-ended for a stand alone - Reynolds is a great writer though and it shines through.

For some reason I always get confused between the fiction of Mr. Reynolds and Neal Asher.   I don't know why.  However, I've now got myself so confused that I don't know which books I've read and which I haven't (I've bought 'The Voyage of the Sable Keech' twice new and one second hand and 'Revelation Space' twice as well.)   I've just given up buying either for now. 

I know a list is the obvious answer but this requires forethought and that's never been one of my strengths.
