I’ve waited a bit before I started on this review, in the hope that my feelings for this book would somehow clarify. But the truth is that I still don’t really know whether I like it or not. I’m not even sure that I can classify this book as science fiction (not that there’s anything wrong with that – but the blurb on the back cover calls it hard science fiction).
After the bad experience with Frameshift, I didn’t really want to starting on a new story by Sawyer. But, everybody deserves a second chance and when a friend ruthlessly dumped The Terminal Experiment (TTE) on me, I decided to give it a go. Bad decision! TTE is even more annoying and error ridden than Frameshift and makes for a fairly bad experience that nobody should have forced on them. I’m not sure why I even finished it.
