Jack Glass (2012)
3.7 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Un libro que imita el sabor de la ciencia ficción clásica de Asimov y compañía en la forma y estructura, pero la convierte en un mutante monstruoso al incluir temas y acciones que rechinan. La matanza con casquería de la primera parte o el entorno ciberpunk de las otras dos seria...
Yellow Blue Tibia (2009)

review 1: this is a case of 3.5 stars. Roberts writes admirably, in the great tradition of British satirists (as he likes to qualify the narrator of this book). I would have given it four star, if not for an ending which tries too hard to stay consistent with the novel underlying scientifi...
Jack din sticla (2013)

review 1: What is this book? The opening chapter is interesting: seal convicts on an asteroid, give them air scrubbers, food and drills, get them to make their own homes within asteroid. This is a novel concept. And then it gets gory, giving a new meaning to 'body suit' (I won't go into de...
By Light Alone (2011)

review 1: A strange, beautifully written, ambitious novel, both satirical and post-apocalyptic. The setting, in spite of its detail (the near-future world is completely altered by a virus that grows photosynthetic hair, thus allowing the poor to live pretty much without eating; a severely ...

review 1: Shortly after World War II, Konstantin Skvorecky along with a group of other Russian sci-fi writers, is forced to write an alien invasion story for Stalin. Forty years later, it appears as if it's about to come true, right at certain power plant in Kiev. Yellow Blue Tibia is a fa...
I Am Scrooge: A Zombie Story for Christmas (2011)

review 1: Folks, I don't think this book was meant to be taken seriously and judged against Alastair Reynolds or Olaf Stapledon. I suspect a better comparison would be a Christmas panto, with the audience shouting, "Oh no you won't!" and "Look out!" at key points. OK, I almost didn't fini...
The Dragon with the Girl Tattoo (2011)

review 1: As a parody, the book was somewhat alright. The plot did follow the original closely but had its own twists.The story was easy enough to follow, but slowly lost energy as the climax in the book was met. When i finally found out that the knot of the problem was being unraveled, th...
Swiftly (2004)
3.13 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Adam Roberts is one of my favourite Science Fiction writers and this tribute to one of the first classics of the genre only increases this enthusiasm. Swiftly explores the themes of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, a story well known and loved by many. Here we see the tiny Li...
