We push Ice, It’s what we do
I finish Pushing Ice the whole weekend and now I got a flu!
Alastair Reynolds presents the old sci-fi theme very nicely in this book. Living away from home, on an alien world, nearly the speed of light. A theme which is very similar to Clarke’s Rendezvous With Rama (more to Rama II actually), but with more characters. The most interesting thing I found is the idea of knowing our own ‘future’ after near light-speed travel (an effect of time relativity). Its like living forever!
To those who already read the book: The guy who ‘creates stuff’ is the only Chinese guy in the colony. Ha! Anyway, I was hoping to hear more about Chromis near the end of the book, I like her character (and her relationship with Bella). Despite that, I love the ending especially the last chapter.
