Lookie, I wrote a review!

Well, part of one anyway. I'm about a third of the way into Peter Watt's Maelstrom, and have posted a few preliminary comments on the subject over on my Inksome journal (yes, it's still there - I'm using it for book reviews and I simply haven't DONE any in a couple of years.) Anyway, if you're interested, and don't mind finding out something about the ending of Starfish, book one in the trilogy, here's the link. I've set comments open so you can comment there even without an account. I think - let me know if I'm wrong.

Based on the James Nicoll quote on Watts' website, I haven't tried to read Watts' stuff.

I don't think I've seen it - what did James Nicoll say? In any case, I don't blame you; if you look at the link you'll find that this is shaping up to be one of those things you read because of the eight deadly words - if you cared about the characters you'd stop reading...

At that, I've paused at this point and am taking an AJ Hall comedy of manners break (Lust over Pendle). More later, no doubt. I'm still curious about the story itself for some odd reason.

The quote is "Whenever I find my will to live becoming too strong, I read Peter Watts."

Grin. He's got a point there.

Finally decided to just go LOOK at the end of the book (and of Behemoth) and see if the planet survives - for the curious, it does and so does humanity. I think. I have other things to read. LOTS of them. (In fact, as usually happens when I've finished LoP, I'm now reading the sequel, Dissipation and Despair, which is more of a cozy-style mystery, with a number of sympathetic characters and some real nasties firmly and mercifully on the Wrong Side.)
