Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky Peach Reviews

  • Mike

    3.25 out of 5 stars

    This is a compelling little story that drops you into a future where ecological disasters have ravaged the Earth and time travel is now a possibility. I wasn’t quite sure what was going on in the first several chapters, but things are made more clear as time passes. The interplay between the chapter epigraphs and the main narrative was a really great feature that I enjoyed puzzling out.

    As a setting, ancient Mesopotamia provides a fertile ground (wink wink) for time travel expl

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book as a gift. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

    My lasting impression of Robson's novella is that this entire world building reads effortlessly. At first it's like you've jumped into the deep end of a pool on a hot summer day. The shock is blinding and initially frigid because Robson doesn't throw us any life boats. There's no hand holding and incredibly tedious hand holding. We are left to surface on our own and feel the refreshing

    SF novella. Interesting post-apocalyptic setting with a ecological scientist heroine, plus time travel. I really liked grouchy Minh's relationship with the younger generation Kiki. The two timelines worked well together.

    Quibble: The ending had no denouement and felt more like the one-line punch ending to a short story. It left me wondering what happened next. Tor.com has had a number of sequel novellas from other authors, perhaps this will also grow into a novella series.

    This is the kind of science-fiction that makes you feel stupid. And confused. And sleepy. Mercifully, it was short.



    "Minh drove into project management mode. She wanted to skim through TERN's project protocol information and then focus on further refining her work plan using whatever historical information she could get access to. But the project protocol docs were tedious, with hour upon hour of real-time content. Summarizing and scanning ahead were disabled. Worse, at the end of each doc they ...more

    This was a big personal treat. I've been choosing a lot of my reading lately by trying to see what has already been done in the realm of my target area for fiction: combining ecology and genre fiction. To some extent, my motivation derives from the enormous gulf between, to the stuff it seems like there ought to be, and how few books actually been able to find that really deliver on it. Thankfully, that seems to be changing. In this book in particular represents a huge step toward that potential ...more

    Really interesting world building and great characters. An amazing amount of detail packed into a short novel - I would have been happy if had been twice as long.

    There was a lot to like about this novel, and I appreciated all of it. The mishmash of the world in the future, the time travel theme and the larger-than-life characters shouldn't have worked, but it somehow did. For some reason, though, I admired rather than purely enjoyed the book - it didn't quite grab me by the throat in that delightful way that usually makes a novel special for me. In particular, I wan't fond of the (view spoiler)

    Did your brain go totally Roald Dahl when you saw the title? Mine did. Anyway, this novella was sent to me by the publisher, Tor.com, at no cost. It will be available for you to read from 13 March, 2018 (which is this year!). 

    Somehow, don't ask me how, I managed not to read "The Waters of Versailles," Robson's highly regarded short story from... last year? The year before? I don't know how I managed not to read it, given everyone else was raving about it... I just didn't get to it. I'm going to
