    1 thought on “K-Machines

    1. It s not that this is a bad book It s that this is a book written by someone who doesn t know how to tell a story At every point where something should be explained, the protagonist interrupts the teller, jumps into another reality, or gets attacked by a fearsome beastie The first time this happened, it was entertaining After I d gone through half the book and noticed the dialogue to internal monologue was roughly 1 50, I lost any hope of finishing this IThe injokes and kabbalistic underpinning [...]

    2. Interesting ideas, wandering, shaky execution, and a dippy, unlikeable protagonist Great opening, good teaser ending, some marvelous setpieces I d read the next but I don t think it ever appeared Hmm In his review, Paul Di Filippo says K Machines concludes a duology with Godplayers if so, Broderick is leaving a mop head of loose ends As with Godplayers, I wanted to like this book than I could Worth reading, I guess, but YMMV.
