“Kill me, please. Kill me now.” The ‘Revelation Space’ saga continues and if you’re in this far the news is good: ‘Redemption Ark’ more than satisfactorily continues proceedings because Reynolds, God bless him, doesn’t faff about.

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...

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]....
