by Alastair Reynolds, © 2000, Ace mass market 2002 paperback, first of Revelation Space series – science fiction
In spite of positive “critical reviews”, after 94 pages of this one I gave up. The number of plotlines, subplots, characters, timelines and flashbacks simply overwhelmed me. Admittedly, I read it at a somewhat chaotic time, going through the process of selling a home, buying a new one in another state and setting up the move from one to the other. I wanted a book that gripped me, took me to another place for a few hours, and this did not do the job.
Reynolds may well be a fine writer and his books seem to be much appreciated by the SF community, but this one was a disappointment for me and I doubt I’ll try another of his works.
