Prador Moon, by Neal Asher

Prador Moon: A Novel Of The PolityPrador Moon: A Novel Of The Polity by Neal Asher
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Prador Moon is the first Neal Asher novel i’ve yet read and although it was certainly a rollicking action fest that hit all the marks; man-eating crabs, check, insanely powerful weapons, check, kick-ass but dark military protagonist, check, hilariously awesome ending, check… It didn’t hit the right notes for me and i’m at a loss to explain why. It did seem somewhat rushed, somewhat distanced from the action, whereas most of my favorite space-opera (Reynolds, Moon, Banks…) tend to be very close in to the protagonists, so that may well be part of it.

Regardless, it was a well designed story in a well detailed universe and I enjoyed it enough to look forward to reading the next in the series.
