I have now finished Nick Harkaway’s The Gone-Away World and I am so impressed I have actually written a review. You can find it here. I didn’t deliberately set out to violate all of those rules of good reviewing that people are so fond of posting these days, but I suspect I have blown through quite a few of them. After all, I’m not writing for Locus, or even for Emerald City. I wrote the review because I wanted to, and for your entertainment and edification. I make no pretense at objectivity.
I have been a little bit spoilerish, but hopefully most of you are not the sort to be put off by that.
