Chasm City Ê D Now with the entire city corrupted from the people to the very buildings they inhabit only the most wretched sort of existence remains For security operative Tanner Mirabel it is the landscape of. “I’ve been sent here to kill someone who probably doesn’t deserve it and my only justification for it is some absurd adherence to a code of honour no one here understands or even respects” While reading the book I was a little bothered by the protagonist's motivation which did not make a lot of sense to me Suddenly Alastair Reynolds addressed my problem directly and things begin to fall into place This book is a very intricately plotted sf novel with strong element of a noir thriller but the emphasis is definitely on the sci fi On the face of it the book may initially seem like a straightforward story of revenge The main character Tanner Mirabel is chasing a man who killed his best friend and the love of his life but made the mistake of leaving him alive The chase reuires uite a bit of interstellar travel part of which is even on a space elevator which brings to mind Arthur C Clarke’s The Fountains of Paradise The structure of the book is almost linear but not uite as two different stands of flashback seuences are also woven into the main story arc In lesser hands this sort of skipping back and forth along the timeline can cause a lot of confusion for the readers but kudos to Mr Reynolds for the clarity of his writing even without any chapter labeling the reader is never confusedIn spite of the crime fiction influence the sci fi aspect of the story is thankfully the strongest element Reynolds is at the forefront of the sf genre for a reason here is an author who is seemingly put upon the earth to write sf it is either coded in his DNA or God is a sf fan take your pick While the story is not epic in scale as it mainly focuses on the protagonist’s adventures it is set in a brilliantly imagined universe Chasm City is set in the Rev space universe but is not a continuation of that book It is basically a standalone with brief mentions of some things from that book Most of the book is set in the titular Chasm City an amazing place where buildings and machinery are infected with a plague that infect nanomachines and mutate them into weird nightmarishly shaped things What it does to people I will leave you to discover for yourselfWhat makes Reynolds stand out from most other sf writers today is that he can spin a great yarn he knows his science very well and he cares about creating believable and interesting characters with real motivations Most importantly for sf he is extremely good at world building creating astounding yet believable and vivid places and life forms if you are looking for escapism he is your man There are uite a few scientists who are writing sf but IMO Reynolds is the best story teller and prose stylist among them His characters do not simply wear white hats or black hats they tend to have uite believable motivations His prose is accessible without coming across as having been dumbed down for the semi literates He even slipped in the occasional flashes of humor mostly through ironic dialogues and the end of the book even includes some lyrical passagesWho would I recommend this book to YouBasically you who is reading this review If you are interested enough to read this review this far this book is for you Read Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Alastair Reynolds

Posted at Heradas“How long would you have to live; how much good would you need to do to compensate for one act of pure evil you’d committed as a younger man”Very very good One of those books that I massively enjoy  having read past tense but ultimately didn’t enjoy while reading It slogs and turns its wheels for about 200 pages in the middle but I see now why it was necessary and it ultimately pays off in stridesStrong similarities to Iain M Banks’ Use of Weapons except that it didn’t  rely on a reveal in the same way instead slowly telling the reader what is afoot It’s subtle but I strongly suspect that it’s intentional I picked up on it around 13 of the way through and was initially disappointed thinking that it might be a  shocking twist ending that was too obvious and heavy handed However my initial assessment of the reality of the situation I  thought I comprehended early on was incomplete and less than half of the true pictureUltimately this novel is about redemption It's a personal favorite of mine and I suggest it to everyone
