this is 2 in a row now that I've struggled with from Clement. I'm sorry but for someone who is supposedly a scifi master story teller, he's not a very good writer. there are interesting elements in this as there were in Ocean on Top, but the actual plot/story line is very poor and all the things i was hoping might happen never occur because the story is bogged down in a very slow ponderous go nowhere plot. the creatures are interesting and could be very cool but they and the entire situation get short shrift by a very simple minded set of events involving capture and escape and capture again or the threat of recapture blah blah. the science behind the story might have made for a good novel but this isn't it. beginning to worry about continuing with clement. i didn't remember thinking Needle was too bad though a tad dated perhaps. and the writing itself is very clunky to my ear.
