Review: Something Coming Through
Something Coming Through by Paul J. McAuley
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I'm sorry, I really tried to like this book, I really really tried!
I like the idea of the book, different worlds, but still basically the same script as being on earth because while you may be able to move people you can't change them!
This was kind of an alien crime thriller, and again, I liked that bit.
The problem I had was that it is so slow moving! It felt like a chore moving from one chapter to the next. By the time it did reach something cool I didn't care anymore because I'd already trawled through too much filler to get there!
I could see this story itself being very good if a lot of the unnecessary filler was removed, but for now. Two stars for me I'm afraid.
I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
