Elizabeth Bear: Hammered

This is a very complex book. If you blink, you’ll have to double back and read it again.

Sometimes even if you didn’t blink, you’ll have to double back because Ms. Bear does like to make you work for it. Not a bad thing, but it’s not a book you want to read when you’re not entirely awake.

Some people will be bugged by the multiple POVs, including one first person POV. I think it works very well in this book.

The first person POV character is Jenny Casey, the protagonist. I don’t think the character’s voice Pops out of the page, and I’m not sure that I like her, but she’s a very interesting character.

I’ll be getting the next book, Scardown, for sure.

This rates 8 out of 10.
