Underachievement Unlocked

Eversion (Alastair Reynolds) — 6/10

An interesting idea that I wish I could have enjoyed without thinking of how similar it was to that one TV show I won’t name in order to avoid spoilers. (Supposedly this was pure synchronicity. I guess many writers were rightly influenced by watching The Terror.) The first half was smartly written if a bit repetitive — the audiobook narrator was excellent, which helped — but the second half was incredibly laborious, soured me on the whole experience and dissuaded me from seeking out more works from the same author.
