Slow Bullet by Alastair Reynolds – Review


slow bullets

5 Stars

An excellent science fiction read.  Great character interaction with a good plot.

The ending of a war, finds a large mixed group in hibernation aboard a skip-ship.  You have soldiers from both sides mixed in with civilians.  Something has gone wrong with the ships systems, and they are just starting to wake up.

I really enjoyed this book, and didn’t want to put it down until I finished.   This story is told from Scur’s point of view.

My favorite quote from this story is from Scur –

“You have a weapon,” I said, studying the hopeful gleam in his eyes. “It’s called fear.  It’s going to be at your back, every waking hour of your life.”

(Disclaimer- I received this book from Tachyon Publications through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)
