Reviews of Codgerspace (1992)
Review by fastfinge (2005-11-09)
This is not a particularly excelent book, but it's not a bad one, either. The plot gets off to an extremely slow start, sounding at first more like a history text than anything else. Then it goes through several side characters before getting on to introducing the main plot of the book. The AI revolt plot that was so carefully developed is then completely cast aside in favour of an alien artifact plot. It felt somewhat abrupt to me. However, the writing is good, the characters are okay, and the story is interesting. While it's not all that good of a book, it's not bad, either.
