    This is the second book this year I ve given a full five stars to, and it s super well deserved I really liked Planetfall, the first book set in this universe, but this one takes a fairly different approach and is muchof a police investigation than anything else Our only real link to Planetfall is the fact that our main character, Carlos, is the son of a woman who left on the Atlas mission that we follow in Planetfall Carlos is now a grown up and we follow a bit about his daily life as This is the second book this year I ve given a full five stars to, and it s super well deserved I really liked Planetfall, the first book set in this universe, but this one takes a fairly different approach and is muchof a police investigati...

    This one was one rather huge surprise for me I mean, I liked the exploration bits and the mental disability bits in the first novel It felt genuine and fascinating.But this one took on a whole different feel Cyberpunk, a heavily populated society, massive injustice, social inequality, and institutionalized slavery based on credits and indenture I loved this aspect I felt harrowed and despairing even as I railed against it with our main character who has been S upon for 23 years, This one was one rather huge surprise for me I mean, I liked the exploration bits and the mental disability bits in the first novel It felt genuine and fascinating.But this one took on a whole different feel Cyberpunk, a heavily populated society, massive injustice, social inequality, and institutionalized slavery based on credits and indenture I loved this aspect I felt harrowed and despairing even as I railed against it with our main character who has been S upon for 23 years, dreams of decent meals, and lives a life equivalent to a labor camp AS a murder investigator.Say what Yep, specialized training, a chip in his head, wide powers to hunt down mysteries and yet he s still pretty much a slave.Cool, right The characterizations are all fantastic, claustrophobic, and I FEEL the need to solve the murder if only to get my mind off my horrible situation Ahem I mean, the CHARACTER s situation As a full on murder mystery, I had a great time As a worldbuilding novel, I was fascinated by so...

    4.5 stars I really liked this one Although technically a sequel to Planetfall, instead of being set on the planet where the events of the last book took place, After Atlas is a crime novel set on Earth 40 years after the colonists of Planetfall departed I don t really read many crime novels or murder mysteries, but this one appealed to me Newman s writing and characterisation are spot on, and captured a definite sense of gritty realism in the dystopian future she has created As much as I 4.5...

    Everybody is on a leash Some areobvious than others Just finished the book and I m still reeling Newman s writing style is just so compelling Once , I was completely immersed in this world of hers, with its horrendous socio political landscape and fascinating technology While Planetfall dealt with the religious travellers space expedition to find God and Meaning, After Atlas shows us the Earth they left, one in a pitiable state where resources, both nat...

    After Atlas proves that, yes indeed, Emma Newman can do cyberpunk.Good news although it takes place in the same world as Newman s earlier novel, After Atlas can be read without Planetfall, and if the idea of a discussion of agency wrapped around a police procedural taking place in a world remade by gov corps sounds appealing while an exploration of OCD on an alien planet does not, then I d definitely recommend jumping straight ahead to After Atlas You ll miss a certain amount of dramatic After Atlas proves that, yes indeed, Emma Newman can do cyberpunk.Good news although it takes place in the same world as Newman s earlier novel, After Atlas can be read without Planetfall, and if the idea of a discussion of agency wrapped around a police procedural taking place in a world remade by gov corps sounds appealing while an exploration of OCD on an alien planet does not, then I d definitely recommend jumping straight ahead to After Atlas You ll miss a certain amount of dramatic irony, but the worldbuilding and plot points should be entirely intelligible.The narrator of After Atlas is Carlos, a police inspector for the Noropean Min...
