Review: Waking Gods

Waking Gods
Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an interesting book. I mean a lot of books you can tag an archetype and forecast the conclusion. With this series, I honestly had no idea what was about to happen. A giant robot we can barely control, a woman brought back from the dead–or something.. Our crazy ass geneticist is.. off the radar.

Oh, and a giant robot just spoofed into London.

Well. What could happen? I mean seriously Mr. Burns? Paging Mr. Burns! Story time again: YAY! I do like his metaphorical stories.

Ah well. This book fell in line pretty much like the last one. We have a mainly narrated or time snapshotted segments from Mr. Nobody, news crews, daily papers, etc. For some reason and maybe it was the interpolation with characters in between or enough time has gone on but I didn’t feel the style chaff at me this round.

I found the book engrossing as I pretty much cleared it off my plate in a day, very entertaining, and it struck me dumb a few times with how things went. I think it fits in a goldilocks zone of science-fiction. It’s not bubble gum but you don’t need a degree to read it. It’s just right.
