Good Asher Polity novel,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Orbus (Hardcover)
I read about all of Neal Asher's books. All are good though some of course are better than others. This is good Asher, and might be a turning point in Asher's Polity series. His more recent books dealt with the deadly Jain technology. Then he turned to humanity's main rival species, the Prador. This book resolves the Prador conflict in a complete and satisfying, though intriguing way. I wouldn't be surprised if his next book took up an entirely unexpected focus.
My favorite Asher Novel is The Skinner. I would read any book he published although a few, such as Cowl, can be slow going. For those who might like to read Asher for the first time, The Skinner would be a fine rousing start.
Gridlinked would be another good start, though it's early and from the time before he achieved his stride with the Polity series. Gridlinked may have been the first of his novels to be published, though not the first written(?)

We could share a library! I totally agree with you. The Skinner is amazing. What an imagination.

Taking a shot in the dark, let me tell you what I'm going to read next: Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light. This classic SciFi novel is maybe my all-time single favorite. So you might enjoy checking it out. Good fortune to you!
