Series: Culture #3
I'm still not a fan of this book, although the twist at the end made me less mad this time around. It actually starts off in a fairly promising fashion, as a kind of sci-fi romp that follows this guy skilled at war and who basically hires himself out as a mercenary. Sort of.
But then the story starts to get bogged down in itself, and the two interleaved timelines become less interesting. I have to say that the whole twist hinges on a few ambiguous lines. Also that last chapter (from the "old" or background timeline) is a cheat.
I'm going to get to hash it out with my friends and complain to my heart's content so it's not all bad, right?
I'm also counting this for the "Genre: Suspense" square for the 2018 Halloween Bingo.
