Reviews - What do customers think about Eclipse Penumbra 2 (A Song Called Youth - Book Two)?
dont worry-the end of world will have commercials :) Aug 27, 2006
My review for Episode I of eclipse stills stands for this 2nd part of the series. Shirley raises the bar here for sci-fi/cyber literature. More action, more characters, and more insanity-in a good way. Not only can Shirley write a good action piece he also gives you just enough about the many characters to care about them, or depise them :) If you want a story that has shoot em up action, cyber-tech action, even sex,drugs,and rock and roll than look no further. Shirely may suprise but he does not dissapoint!
A Fine Work Of Cyberpunk Fiction Jun 2, 2001
Once more John Shirley gives a fascinating, riveting tale about 21st Century Fascism attempting to take hold in the United States and Western Europe, in the waning phases of a conventional war between the United States and the Soviet Union. Dissent and treachery are rife in the leadership of the Christian Fascist Second Alliance (SA) and its primary opposition, the New Resistance (NR). The SA's grip on Western Europe grows tighter as it bids to win control of FirStep, the orbiting space colony. A splendid tale filled with mesmerizing characters that is among the finest works of cyberpunk fiction.
