City at the Edge of Time
I would have to agree. The first half of Hull Zero Three in particular was kind of tiresome to get through.
But there are definitely some intriguing ideas in it.
is another Bear book I had trouble getting into.
I'd recommend Blood Music
, and perhaps Darwin's Radio
(but not the sequel).
The book I finished recently was Deus Ex: Icarus Effect.
It was very average, unfortunately. I'd recommend it only if you are a huge fan of the game.
