Some reviews opined that the book was difficult to get into or difficult to follow the story line and there were times that I agreed. In the whole of you want a rewarding ecosystem then you have to put up with a bit of background. This story was a wonderful way to do this. After the untimely passing of Iain M. Banks I have finally found an author that can craft a universe. I will miss The Culture, but Mr Asher has provided a rich universe to discover along with some very undertaking Minds. Room101, Penny Royal, Thirteen, not to mention the incorrigible Sniper.
If you're new to Asher don't start here.
I just couldnt get into this, I'm not sure if its because I started with the second book.

Answering questions like this is not a review but on the offfchance I may win a sound system I can live with it
Was a great continuation of the original story - set 10 years after the Skinner - with the right amount of change to Spatterjay life to make it a plausible return Oceanside to the planet.
Hooper humour was there as always a long with many familiar faces. Apart from one obvious twist the story weaves its way to a big finish once again, couldn't stop listening as I reached the finish.
I don't know if it could be considered as good without having first read The Skinner but who apart from a corrupted war drone would consider reading book 2 first !
Already bought book 3 which is the best compliment I can give it.
Since my trip to the little Flint am definitely now a fully reincarnated Asher fan !!!
