Review: Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds

revelation-spaceRevelation Space is a sprawling, hard-SF tale with enough original ideas for three thick novels. Seriously, it’s overflowing with the stuff. And it’s written by a guy with a PhD in astronomy, so all the science feels solid.

It’s got aliens, artificial intelligence, megastructures, colonized planets, ancient mysteries, cyborgs, big-ass spaceships, intrigue, betrayal, and murder. Reads don’t get much more satisfying than this.

Recommendation: Buy it or get it at the library. Then read the other four Revelation Space books and buy the box set when it comes out (this is my current plan).

  1. Man, you are great. Your “Best of …” gave my ebook reader a new life. Hard to imagine but I ran out of ebooks, and did not know what to read next. So I took on other activities, but… there are no better activities than book reading. And of course photography 🙂 Now I have a bunch of new books to read.
