Reviews by Wulf


by Peter Watts

It's a great hard sci-fi story. The only real downsite is that there is so little of it. But in literature there are feasts (Lord or the Rings) and there are appetizers. Blindsight is a veritable appetizer buffet. I,too, dislike needless jargon but besides the questionable "noosphere" there is almost none of that in Blindsight.

To people like Noam I can only say: why read and "indie" author like Peter Watts in a necessarily technical genre like sci fi if you aren't willing to be challenge by the fare you read? I'm DELIGHTED whenever a book makes me want to lookup some term or person. For example, Tesla is a standard measurement for magnetic field strength and 12 teslas is quite bad indeed (not that one couldn't have gotten that from the book) considering the earths magnetic field is only 31 micro teslas strong.

I'm really not judging you but seriously, if Blindsight is to hard for you, you might want to pick your books from the entry area of your favorite bookstore.
