Pushing Ice (Reynolds), Interim Comment

Good god, everyone's insane. Well, not everyone. But both Svetlana and Bella need to be slapped silly. Or slapped sensible. And the rest of the crew, for not keeping Svetlana on a democratic leash.

Hope some readers knows what I'm talking about... I just hit the Buenos Aires passage.

Odd, CR is the only one of Reynolds' novels where I found the setting considerably less interesting than the characters. I think HoS is his best yet (although Chasm City is still wonderful - I love how it deals with the exact same issues as Banks' Use of Weapons, except that the protagonist's attempts at redemption are not nearly so utterly doomed in Chasm City.

Little of the New Space Opera seems to leave much in the way of characters with me, though that might be a function of lack of re-reading or seriesness. (Bujold and Pratchett stick with me quite well, but those characters get lots of exposure... OTOH, Small Gods and Good Omens make decent impacts.) I know there were characters in Singularity Sky and Iron Sunrise but um... The Rev Space bunch have bigger impact, especially the ones in and around Nostalgia For Infinity, Volvova and Sylveste, but also Clavain and other Conjoiners. Tanner... somewhat. Never did re-read Chasm, though.
