Re: Weir's book is well researched and compelling entertainment

It may be so, but I couldn't get past the awful, stilted prose. Robert Silverberg this just ain't. Had real high hopes when I bought this but I couldn't get past the tenth page. I so badly wanted to forget my snobbery and just enjoy it but dammit literate science fiction is my particular thang, and this just didn't cut it for me.

Icon because I am aware I'm coming over like an enraged (deranged?) Eng Lit prof.
