Science Fiction Round 74: Lockstep

2017/07/23 1 comment

Some science fiction is harder than the rest.  Lockstep is one of the relatively few “big-scale” space-opera novels I’ve read that actually handles a no-faster-than-light reality relatively well.  It has a few plot holes, and I’ve got some quibbles about the setup, but it’s worth a read.

Also, the Goodreads ratings are… kind of funny, in that there are complaints about the story being too hard sci-fi, or too complex, too hard to easily understand.  I guess if you’re not into complex worldbuilding blended with some science-y stuff, this might not be a good book for you.

As ever… this review contains some spoilers.

The two people in this image are probably intended to be our two main protagonists, Toby and Corvana.
