So, I went and read the review thread for Indistinguishable from Magic
. Pretty much all the reasons I didn't like it - small universe syndrome, choppy scene changes, scientific concepts well beyond my comprehension - were thoroughly covered there. Though no one seemed to have mentioned the moss zombies - that was the point where, if I hadn't been so close to the end of the novel, I would have given up.
One thing I DID like? The name of the Split Infinite. To boldly create new spatial anomalies!
Slightly off topic, last night I watched William Shatner's Gonzo Ballet
on Netflix. I can't decide if it was completely absurd or completely brilliant.
