Gods and the City also has a great plot - more of a page-turner than his previous books. Honestly, if I were to complain about it, I'd say I wish it were 2 or 3 times longer.
Well worth the money to pass an afternoon or two this summer.
A plot that crackles with energy? Check.
Far future technology that's plausible? Check.
Fast paced and intense? Check.
A thrilling climax? Check.
Statham has really done it this time. A very well thought out plot line that let's us glimpse the human race a thousand years in the future. I've enjoyed his Connor Rix books but this story really goes off in a new direction. A SF epic that doesn't require 1500 pages. ( Are you listening Peter F. Hamilton?) A tightly plotted story that delivers excitement on nearly every page. But these characters are not paper thin. It's amazing how quickly the author makes us care about these people. Plus he throws in a few philosophical parts that make you wonder if this future could ever happen. With the course of events that happen in this book, yea, I can see this type of society developing.
All in all a solid book. Recommended.
