61Qm7WztTvL Blindsight review Books Book Reviews

Two months have past since a myriad of alien objects clenched about the Earth, screaming as they burned. The heavens have been silent since?until a derelict space probe hears whispers from a distant comet. Something talks out there: but not to us. Who should we send to meet the alien, when the alien doesn’t want to meet?

Send a linguist with multiple-personality disorder and a biologist so spliced with machinery that he can’t feel his own flesh. Send a pacifist warrior and a vampire recalled from the grave by the voodoo of paleogenetics. Send a man with half his mind gone since childhood. Send them to the edge of the solar system, praying you can trust such freaks and monsters with the fate of a world. You fear they may be more alien than the thing they’ve been sent to find?but you’d give anything for that to be true, if you knew what was waiting for them. . . .

Amazon

I felt like I was duped by the synopsis that amazon shows, and unfortunately my opinion of the book is built on what I was incorrectly expecting from the book.  This isn’t science fiction, it’s speculative philosophy with some science fantasy through in for flavor.  There’s no part of this story that the science fiction/fantasy actually plays a major role in the story’s progress or conclusion and it could have been set in a bar instead of in deep space.  I wish I had known that going in, because I wouldn’t have read it, I abhor philosophical fiction, it’s all running in circles making grand proclamations and ultimately ends up just being a boring speech on what the author’s current feelings on the matter are.

51Z2Z7JesRL Chains of Command review Books Book Reviews

The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens’ seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers—all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds.

Knowing Earth’s uneasy respite won’t last, the North American Commonwealth and its Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades’ stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat—and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity’s future.

Amazon

I love what Marko Kloos is doing with this universe, and after a slow start to give the rest of the book a firm foundation and give the readers a chance to catch, the action really gets moving with some well written human on human action during a time when it’s the last thing that they need to be focusing on.  It has a satisfying resolution, but there’s clearly more books coming in this series, which is awesome.  It’s obvious Kloos doesn’t feel pressured to wrap everything up, or to tell the story in tiny little chunks (looking at you Scalzi!).

There’s four books in this series so far:

  1. Terms of Enlistment
  2. Lines of Departure
  3. Angles of Attack
  4. Chains of Command

Side note : All of these books are included in Amazon Kindle Unlimited, which is only $9.99 a month.  They’re currently doing a 30 day free trial, so you can actually read this entire series for free if you jump through a couple hoops : Join Amazon Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial Chains of Command review Books Book Reviews

9781597808217 p0 v2 s1200x630 The Windup Girl review Books Book Reviews

Anderson Lake is AgriGen’s Calorie Man, sent to work undercover as a factory manager in Thailand while combing Bangkok’s street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history’s lost calories.

Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. Emiko is not human; she is an engineered being, grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman, but now abandoned to the streets of Bangkok. Regarded as soulless beings by some, devils by others, New People are slaves, soldiers, and toys of the rich in this chilling near future in which calorie companies rule the world, the oil age has passed, and the side effects of bio-engineered plagues run rampant across the globe.

What happens when calories become currency? What happens when bio-terrorism becomes a tool for corporate profits and forces mankind to the cusp of post-human evolution? Bacigalupi delivers one of the most highly-acclaimed science fiction novels of the twenty-first century.

Amazon.com

Written by Paolo Bacigalupi

A great premise absolutely ruined by the author’s inability to stay with a single narrative thread for more than a chapter or two.  Should we be interested in the calorie man?  the windup girl?  How about the leader of the White Shirts, or the fight they’re having with the Ministry, or the unseen Queen that’s out there, or the guy they have locked up that’s diseased from some self made plague? Or perhaps the Yellow Card guys or the character named “dog fucker”?

I really had my expectations dashed by this book.  It’s got a great hook, but Bacigalupi can’t decide which direction to go with it, and ultimately it goes no where.
