It's mad that he never explored that universe again. So rich, but just the one novel.

Pretty sure a saw it mentioned a while ago. Absolutely fantastic trilogy. I'm a sucker for SciFi that touch the large scale/grand scope, and this series is quality and definitely up there. Also: Australia. :lol:


I found the writing style, very turgid and boring. It might sound more exciting in Chinese, but alas I can't speak Japanese!

The plot was very original tho.
I'm half way through the second book now, The Dark Forest. The first third of it was bizarre and I'd agree it was fairly turgid. It has started to get going now and I'm fairly hooked again.
Yeah... I hated the first book. It's "imaginitive" but it's essentially ridiculous fantasy written by someone with absolutely no idea how people work or how to write them.
I am struggling through it which is unusual for me as I read voraciously - it's not really going anywhere yet.

I will persevere

I couldn't get through the first one - just not very good.

On the other had, reading Rosewater by Tade Thompson, which is very good. Has just won the Arthur C Clarke for best sci-fi novel. Set in future Nigeria. Great story and the setting is brilliant. Highly recommended. Looking forward to more African sci-fi now.

Read the first one. It's alright. Pulp sci-fi, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Good thread. Currently re-reading Asimov's Foundation series after 20 years and really enjoying it (although find the dialogue occasionally clunky).

Prob mentioned before but Jack Vance"s fantasy Lyonesse trilogy is a high point of the genre, imho - stunning work.

Top notch book, ditto the follow-on. I’m hanging out for Ippy library to get the third book (altho’ I’m not sure if it’s out yet, tbh).

I've read the first two and really liked them but is there a drop off in quality at any point a la Dune? Got to say I'm not a massive Asimov fan, his ideas are amazing but there aren't normally any engaging characters in there and as you say the dialogue can be poor. Suppose that's why he wrote robots so well.

Ploughing through Endymion (Hyperion book 3) at the moment. Enjoying the whole saga. The books are all very different in style/feel and you build a very good picture of the whole civilisation as you go.
Took a bit of a break after Fall of Hyperion and over Christmas.

One of my favourites. Definitely the most 'literary' sci-fi book I've ever read.
I see what you mean by literary. I really enjoyed the Canterbury Tales style of the first book. Each story had a very different genre/style to it. I loved the story of the priest finding the indigenous tribe. Very weird and more like a horror story at times.

I found some of the more "literary" bits a bit tedious at times, did little to advance the plot and I cared little for reading about the internal musings of the Keats cybrid in the infirmary on the Earth-like world, or reading pages of Silenious' (the poet) waffling poems.
I'm definitely more of a fan of the "traditional" sci-fi elements. Spaceships, space marines, weird technology, FTL travel (and whatever mad shit the author dreams up to explain it), etc.

That's definitely a key feature of the plot in Endymion.

The ship that the Pax guys use to get around everywhere is fairly brutal!

In a bid to be well read I got through a couple of the Sci-fi classics last year even though I hate sci-fi

Flowers for Algernon - brilliant concept and excellently written
Journey to the Center of the Earth - quite enjoyed it. Daft but in the age before TV it must have seemed riveting
Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep - ok but it’s no Bladerunner

Thought the same. One of those rare instances where the book, or novella in this instance isn't as good as the film.

A few I've read recently:

Look to Windward, Iain M Banks:
I've run out of superlatives to describe Culture novels, they're all just such wonderful creations. I don't get immersed in anything quite like a Culture book. This one is classic Banks, tackling enormous themes like war, guilt, grief and revenge with seemingly effortless world-building, his usual dry humour, and beautiful, elegant prose. We get an in-depth look at life on an Orbital and the concept of Sublimation, two of my favourite Culture elements. The characters are great as usual and I thought the ending was fantastic, which is not often the case with sprawling space operas.

The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury:
I had a few issues with the fragmentary nature of the book, and the weakness of a few of the short vignettes, but overall this is a remarkable book, very unusual and not like much else I've read. The prose is astounding, reading more like poetry at times. It's full of ethereal, dreamlike imagery and it's very dark in its criticisms of mankind. A very strange, melancholy, captivating book.
