[[Alistair Reynolds']] [Terminal World] in Science Fiction Fans (Juli 2011)

Rezensionen

Machine Vendetta is the latest addition to Alastair Reynolds’ Revelation Space family. It wraps up the Dreyfus Emergency trilogy and describes the 25th-century Glitter Band, Panoply, and Iron Belt cultures and habitats in satisfying detail. Reynolds gives us a full meal of far-future tech—nanotechnology, people uploaded and downloaded into almost everything, antimatter missiles, hyperpig hybrids, and the policeman’s best friend, the trusty robotic whiphound. We have a touching portrayal of Dreyfus's love for his wife, Valerie, who is being treated by the Ice Mendicants. We also get to meet his Panoply work family as he investigates the murder of one of them. We have three AI suspects—the Clockmaker, Aurora, and Abacus. Reynolds does nothing by half-measures.… (mehr)

Very odd and surprising stand alone book that appears to be alt history but turns out as something quite different.

Revelation Space is the first instalment of a trilogy of the same name (although Reynolds has since expanded the series). Set in the not-so-distant future (2400 and beyond) a mix of spacefaring races (including humanity) coexist and inhabit a particular star system in space around a neutron star. The story arcs of three principle characters (an assassin, an engineer and an egotistical philosopher/scientist) gradually coalesce to reveal the mysterious disappearance of a primitive alien race on a minor planet in the system - in particular the exodus of a breakaway faction that developed the ability to travel in space far beyond their means. As the story develops, we begin to see how significant their disappearance is as a portent to potential future threat to the developing civilisations and in turn learn that the status quo is not all as it seems.

This is a book that pendulums between being engaging and ordinary but I’m happy to say it is generally the former. Reynolds, clearly has a passion for science but occasionally his detailed use of ‘hard’ scientific vocabulary slows the story unnecessarily in trying to grasp his descriptions. This was a minor blemish however as he builds a credible world and plot and the denouement was brilliant - pulling everything together exceptionally.

Not a must read unless you’re a sci-fi fan but a decent read if you are. ‘Children of Time’ by Adrian Tchaikovsky is my top pick of recent sci-fi but I definitely want to read the others in the Revelation Space trilogy so it’s a 4/5

Where to start? One of Alastair Reynolds' strengths is the complexity of his novels - there are so many interweaving narratives that embroider this book and summarising them is no mean feat. Be it the first interstellar journey from Earth to settle our race in a new part of space, the redemptive vendetta of a security officer who failed to save his boss or wife from assassination, the continued threat of inhibitors to alien races or the dilapidation of the once great Chasm city, now plague-ridden and nefarious, Reynolds expertly weaves together the strands in another meaty instalment from the Revelation Space world.

With two books now under my belt, I feel a little more qualified and sure in my opinions about Reynold's works. Many reviewers have hit the nail on the head that his books are never perfect but at the same time they're quite obviously 'good' books. His world building, ideas, commitment to making his fiction sensical, his interweaving of plots and originality are all very impressive but then stitched within them is jarring (some have said clunky) writing - none more so than the names he chooses for characters and planets (Travelling Fearlessly? Cahuella? Sleek? Norquinco? the Islamabad? Revelation Space?!) Maybe its just me but I think the strange and awkward names is a portent of the missing X-factor in the writing department, one that never truly effects the enjoyment of the book (since they are extremely readable and I thoroughly enjoyed the story) but discolours them somewhat - leaves you in parts thinking, really? I remember pretty early on the main character Tanner Mirabell said something about 'buy me it for Christmas' and I literally nearly stopped then and there. Christmas? On a new planet thousands of years in the future?

I surmise that he is a man of ideas not literary talent and the ideas are definitely good enough to warrant time spent in Revelation space. This isn't as strong as the titular book but as I have already mentioned it is very readable and interesting.
