It’s been a few months since I read Planetfall and I still have mixed feelings about the book. I want to love it, in fact I love parts of it, and my feelings about the story itself are still quite jumbled around…
I finally picked up Kiln People after seeing it in the stores for a while. I don’t really know why it took me so long to give it a crack; I like David Brin’s Uplift series, I like science fiction, but just haven’t been buying as many books lately.
How was it?
The odds were against it from the start; I felt the central premise was cheesy, but more importantly the last book I read was “The Demolished Man” by Alfred Bester.
TL:DR – I was being a dick. Kiln People was great.
