It's all still written well, but it lacks magic.
It feels too much like an episode to be satisfying.
It's a fun book, but the worldbuilding is too weak to make it stand out as one of Fforde's best.
This book is a poor starting point for an appreciation of Bova's writing
A pleasant, engaging, mild-SF story of family and devotion.
Fun, but by now very familiar.
This is a fun book. Don't give up at Exit Strategy.
Optimistic as it is, I also didn't find it enthralling.
Interesting, if not always captivating.
It all felt too careful, too carefully colored within the lines to have much real passion.
A collection for fans, not casual readers.
A great story trapped in a half-baked manuscript.
