Right, I've just finished a good & cool sci-fi book... Alastair Reynolds' "Revelation Space".

"An impressive first novel and quite possibly the space opera of 2000."
    - Locus

"The span here is mind-boggling... cosmos-spanning concepts... a breathtaking journey"
    - Good Book Guide

"The most stunning and original alien artefact in modern science fiction"
    - Stephen Baxter

I found it a bit puzzling at the start, immensely "must-read-more" in the middle, ingenious in the climax, and a bit deceptive at the very, very end. Still, a very good read.

Whoever is interested and says so here first... I'll mail the book to you! I've only paid 25p for it at a Red Cross Shop anyway, so...

It could be good if we started some sort of book-swapping going on here.

Right, if no one (UK only) wants it within two days, I'll give it back to a charity shop...

It's good, isn't it? Disappointing finale, but then again most sci-fi book are like that...

Nooooooooooo! Why did you tell me it was a disappointing ending :o(

But seriously, if you enjoyed this book, the Peter F Hamilton Nights Dawn trilogy is several times better...

Well I finished this book a few weeks ago and I definitely enjoyed it.

I'm a great fan of anybody who talks about futuristic weapons powered by exotic physics, and not to mention cybernetic implants to enhance the human body. I'd love a pair of eyes with a 40x zoom and aural implants so that I could turn my ears off when I get on noisy trains packed full of wailing children!!! Plus, I could listen to my personal stereo as loud and clear as I wanted and no-one else could hear! Bliss!

Any crazy scientists out there who are in need of guinnea pigs??
