Finally finished "Absolution Gap", final of this dystopian space opera. It took me a while to pick up the third as the second was a bit of a disappointment, I was hooked with "Revelation space" in which the potential for an epic story was laid out, disappointed with "Redemption Ark" where more chara...

[Revelation Space #2] Ok, I have to say that I like Reynolds's solution to Faster Than Light travel. It's not impossible; it's just a really, really bad idea. You could edit yourself right out of the universe. Or this universe, anyway.I was tempted to go for 3.5 stars but I wasn't quite sure the b...

A few loose ends, but let's see if the 3rd volume deals with those. An excellent story that kept me looking for more.

Revelation Space (a standalone novel set in the Rev Space universe) , and it was a case of "He Shoots, He Scores!" again.My reservation about reading Redemption Ark is that it is apparently a continuation of Revelation Space, a book I did not like that much, and thanks to my sieve-like memory I have...

The second book in the Revelation Space series I found this to be a significant improvement and far more enthralling than the first, which was slow to develop.Events from the first book are taken forward a level here. Some that were merely hinted at become central to this book, while there are trace...

Caveat: this is not really a review, but rather a plaintive cry and is based on having read the previous book set in this universe in full (Revelation Space or the story “Swarm” in [b:Schismatrix Plus|161296|Schismatrix Plus|Bruce Sterling|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1309282782s/161296.jpg|155668]....

Number two in the Revelation Space trilogy; you could read it as a standalone story, but it's better to read in sequence, and it helps if you've also read Chasm City. This is a long treasure hunt for super weapons, conducted by two competing factions (though both have the same intention), with a lif...
