Reseñas

Picking up where Persepolis Rising left off, we find the crew of the Rocinante scattered across different star systems and doing different stuff. Laconia is consolidating its position as the pre-eminent expression of humanity in the galaxy, but along with that goes a massive dollop of hubris - a scientific mission to survey many of the gate worlds is intended to find new weapons, whilst Dr. Cortázar has sold High Consul Duarte on the unquestionable benefits of life extension via protomolecule. What could possibly go wrong?

What indeed. Laconia's belief that the gate builders have the same motivations as humans and can be manipulated by displays of force in the same way as traditional human politics suggests blows up in their collective face, just at the same time as the Sol system resistance gets a lucky break. Things go downhill from there.

This instalment definitely kept me reading on into the small hours of the morning to see what happened next! There are some sad surprises and one revolving door, but overall the story is still on target. (Though I did raise an eyebrow where Chrisjen Avarsarala's grand-daughter commented on the old woman's likely reaction to her Laconian state funeral and then had to explain - for the benefit of some younger readers, I suspect - the significance of "you could power a planet by hooking a turbine to her right now"...)

I'm also increasingly finding that exploring the logic of Empire is causing the writers to slip some quite important realpolitik lessons into the text, which many people, especially those who would benefit the most from such lessons, will miss because this is "just" science fiction. Sigh.

Slows down a bit from the first two books, while keeping the twists coming at the end. Sets the stage for the leap into the unknown.

I didn't find this book as good as the previous ones, which i put down to a character thing.

Too much christian waffle: i live in hope that by the time Hominids are travelling the whole solar system we'll have gotten over this all the organised religion thing and seen it for what it truly is.   I found it beyond tragic that people were still clinging to this twaddle.

And i also found Clarissa just tedious and annoying: like a lot of spoiled rich brats that i've known in my life.   I really don't like reading about them and having to endure their thinking.

Still, it has it's good parts, which do balance the few crap characters and religiosity out and offer some redemption (pun intended) for those expecting something better.

I've now dived straight into The Vital Abyss, which is much better and more like what i expect from this series.

Nine massive books, with some pretty big events covered from start to finish. Trying to finish this series satisfactorily was going to be challenge for any writer, but these guys pulled it off.

Somehow staying true to the themes of cooperation vs. greed that has driven the entire narrative, and although leaning deeper into the more speculative science compared to the rigorous 'hard sci fi' of it's beginnings, it none-the-less never lets up in it's narrative promise to make things difficult for it's characters.

A natural place for these stories and characters to end.
