Brasyl : Ian McDonald

by Ian McDonald

Ugh, just tiresome writing. Contained long descriptions of environment and characters that didn't add much value to the story or characters that just made things drag on. Plot that just seemed tired and written to try to impress with knowledge of Brazil.

Pushed through the book hoping it would pick up, but it didn't.

    @ Comradechu: What book were you reading? You mean the one nominated for all sorts of top awards? He was not trying to impress, he DID impress. His insight into Brazilian culture was astounding, accurate, and well-rendered. Give it another chance.
