Reviews of Star Fraction, the (1995)
Review by arhiippa (2004-12-20)
Just finished reading it and have to say one of the best SF books I've ever read. Read it through in one sitting even though I should have gone to bed hours ago. But the world characters and story just kept on forcing me to read a few more pages.
The only thing which isn't completely positive about the book, is that for someone who hasn't read much SF before, the book might be quite disorienting at first. Macleod doesn't bother to explain anything, he just expects the reader to pick things up as one reads along. I definitely like it, but for someone who isn't familiar with SF terminology, there might be many confusing moments even though The Star Fraction isn't set into far future.
