    This is one of those rare science fiction books that lets you wonder and imagine and forget that it s science fiction at all Many sci fi authors lean too heavily on the science and speculation and not enough on the fiction, creating interesting premises but characters that are two dimensional Wilson does not have that problem here His characters are fully fleshed, flawed and realistic and it is these characters that move Spin along so well This is not to say that this book lacks in science a This is one of those rare science fiction books that lets you wonder and imagine and forget that it s science fiction at all Many sci fi authors lean too heavily on the scien...

    Spin was my third exposure to Robert Charles Wilson, a writer who has yet to disappoint me He is not a hard sci fi writer Instead, the author writes about regular people and their ways of coping with major changes in their lives and environments Spin is a very compelling story with believable, yet not overwhelming, scientific details and realistic characters This is the type of SF novel that I would not hesitate to recommend to readers of high quality, literary fiction who may want to expl Spin was my third exposure to Robert Charles Wilson, a writer who has yet to disappoint me He is not a hard sci fi writer Instead, the author writes about regular people and their ways of coping with major changes in their lives and environments Spin is a very compelling story with believable,...

    Well, the PREMISE of this book is amazing The science and concept are just sooo interesting, an intelligent being puts a bubble around earth, so that time is super slow INSIDE, but 3 or 4 years passes every second OUTSIDE the bubble, in space I was so enad of that world building, until the lack of interest in the characters made me peter out about 2 3 in I dunno, lots of people enjoyed this from the reviews, and it won a Hugo, so I guess I m a bit crazy Definitely concept interesting, Well, the PREMISE of this book is amazing The science and concept are just sooo interesting, an intelligent being puts a bubble around earth, so that time is super slow INSIDE, but 3 or 4 yea...

    3.5 rounded up because the ideas were so big beautiful It truly was a work of art, but it felt both too long too short It also never really grabbed me The characters seemed real enough, but none of them ever really grabbed me they should have They were complex strong enough in so many ways, but I never really cared if they lived or died.The scope of the plot was audacious yet pulled off very well I ve been reading SF for 40 years it wowed me It had every 3.5 rounded up because the ideas were so big beautiful It truly was a ...
