Chill - Elizabeth Bear

So far, I'm liking this better than the first book in series (Dust).

 

I think it's because I have some characters to root for, less POV switches to lose them or murkiness about who-is-who/ what-is-what/ less-mucking-about-bits-of-meandering-possibly-unimportant-or-going-nowhere-ship-parts-briefly-introducing-then-abandoning-folk-and-places-and-theories.

 

It's very easy to put down and get distracted by a new shiny, though.  Less a reflection of the book than my mood and how the chapters are written somewhat as convenient stopping points.  And still way too much wandering about ship bits.  

 

I'm reading this for a bookclub on booklikes, Virtual Speculation, if anyone cares to join us.

 

Jacob's Ladder Trilogy in order:

 

Dust - Elizabeth Bear  Chill - Elizabeth Bear  Grail - Elizabeth Bear
