No Action, No Plot, No Interest
I have been a moderate fan of Reynold's previous works. I am not a fan of this one. I slogged my way through two-thirds of it, waiting for something of interest to occur. Instead, I got endless scenes from a semi-scientific soap opera (not space opera) in which the action (what there was of it) flowed like...well, it didn't flow at all. It just sort of laid there. I cannot recall the last time I did not finish a book. With this one, I fervently wish that I had stopped sooner. Authors are supposed to asiduously push the story forward. It is apparent that this story was much too heavy for Mr. Reynolds to move at all.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
