chasm_city_cover_amazon.jpg I’ve finished this book recently. Well, this one proved to be very interesting as the first one in the Revelation Space universe. The first half of the book was rather relaxed and longer than required (as it seemed initially). But from the middle things started to be so mind disturbing that I had to return to the book’s beginning to review some facts which didn’t seem so important earlier. The book has rather twisted and interesting plot, which makes you wonder what comes next till the last page. I wouldn’t say what book of the series is better from the two I’ve read but they both are equally worthy to read. I’m looking forward reading next novel from the series. And to change things from the hard sci-fi a bit, I’ll switch to some perverse book by Poppy Z. Brite titled “Exquisite Corpse” just to research dark side of the American literature.

    I still haven’t read anything by Alastair Reynolds, mainly because I’m not into science fiction at the moment. Must do that someday, though, seems to be pretty good from what people say.

    oh yes, it’s definitely good, try it one day…

    I just finished Century Rain, was also nice, a bit different that his usual stuff, even though some of the characters seem pretty similar to ones he’s had in other books, still fun though.

    I just finished Revelation Space… read it all within 24.5 hours of purchasing it. It was very twisted, and even at 600 pages I wanted it to go for another 600 and explain everything. But that’s what sequels are for, right? I really enjoyed it.

    Thanks for the recommendation, vonnyboy.
