Oh, I love Darwin's Radio! One of my favourite books
I quite enjoyed it too, though I remember being underwhelmed by its sequel, Darwin's Children
. (They're both on the shelf across from me, along with several more of Greg Bear's novels.)
Yeah, I liked the setup at the end of Darwin's Radio, but the followup was rather weak. Didn't feel like it had nearly taken advantage of the situation being proposed. There are loads of interesting books with interesting setups that I find disappointing due to execution. Oh and worst Greg Bear book I read? Moving Mars, because nothing is sillier than moving the planet to another galaxy. It was ridiculous and the pacing was terrible. Expected more out of him after Darwin's Radio.
