The Quiet War
review 1: Wow. I wasn't expecting another novel following The Quiet War and Gardens of the Sun, but Paul McAuley was clearly inspired by his soaring, sobering account of factionalism and evolution in the exotic environment of the outer solar system: In The Mouth of the Whale caps off a remarkable New Space Opera destined to become a classic of the genre. It takes place a thousand years after the Quiet War, in the Fomalhaut star system, but features the fates of key characters -- best not to read this one first. Destined to be one of the best SF novels of 2012.

... morethough I'm not sure that it rises to the level of McAuley's two previous books, "The Quiet War" and "The Gardens of the Sun." This may be because it is set far in the future and seem less on a human scale than the previous books, which had a stronger focus on individual characters. Still, it's a marvelously imaginative book, and well written. less
