Three and half starsapologies for my EnglishBriefly I love how Mr Watts writes I like his pessimism and his vital cynicism and above all I adore his perspective of life and intelligence In this novel the author maintains the level of madness that has us accustomed but unfortunately I have not understood the end Apparently I am not the only one and for me this is a nonsense You can see the plot on the cover of the book a really interesting approach as well as its development throughout the novel as I have already mentioned the problem of the novel is the last part Perhaps it has different meanings or simply the last chapter was not necessary I do not knowFor what it s worth Peter Watts novel evokes me these two novels by some aspects of the argument that I will not explain on the one hand Dark Star by Alan Dean Foster and on the other Marrow by Robert ReedI must indicate that this novel is complemented by other stories that the author has published and that I have not read except The Island great story I think some of these stories can be found for free on the InternetIn my opinion this is not his best work but a less accomplished novel by Peter Watts is preferable to a good novel by many other authors
