Darwin's Radio (Darwin's Radio #1)

Review:

I have de­cid­ed Greg Bear is just not a writ­er I can en­joy.

His books are full of char­ac­ters to whom things just hap­pen. They don't act as much as flail around, buf­fet­ed by forces they don't un­der­stand, un­til fi­nal­ly the sto­ry just stop­s, right in time for the se­quel hook, which is prob­a­bly the part of the book that the au­thor has been think­ing about since page 20.

So, in­stead of try­ing to read Dar­win's Chil­dren and see if there is ac­tu­al­ly some fire be­hind all this smoke, I am go­ing to stop wast­ing my time, and read ac­tu­al books with ac­tu­al char­ac­ters that ac­tu­al­ly do things that ac­tu­al­ly have some ef­fect on their lives.
