And so ends the Socket Greeny Saga, and what an ending it all turned out to be.
There was a point near the beginning of this final book where i thought it looked very clear how this was going to go, and i admit to feeling a little disappointed.
‘But wait, read on’, i told myself; ‘before jumping to conclusions.’
Tony does enjoy his plot twists and this one just seemed to keep on twisting, as further and further down the rabbit hole of Socket’s true nature we went. My little disappointment didn’t last long at all — sorry for ever doubting you Tony.
And the final word is…
wait for it…
Yup, this whole saga has been totally enjoyable and very unputdownable. Which, although it’s been quite a while since i read Halfskin, is what i remember feeling about that series as well.
Yes folks, Tony is a great writer who, if you’re into his kind of sci-fi, will certainly keep you engaged all the way until the last page. Great characters, great writing, with a nice standard everyday lexicon that doesn’t leave you having to use look up at all: which does make the reading experience a lot more immersive.
All i can say is that i’m very much looking forward to next time the “Infinite Improbability Drive” picks one of Tony’s books to read.
