life's too short to wait for the pay off. Opaque and dull. in other words perfect for the booker prize.

wonderful. insightful and beautifully written. it's not that the book will make you cynically sceptical... just thoughtfully and critically sceptical.... loved the numerous examples given to provide evidence for claims.

lacked the tension of first book. Disappointed so obviously a setup for finale. Lathe chunks were really quite dull with overlong descriptions of training procedures ...the final few chapters did move the story forward quite a bit but what preceded was thin on excitement. Not sure if I'll go for third in series.
