Review of 'COSM'

COSM by Greg Benford

The bestselling author of Timescape brings us what is billed as “A Thriller on the Cutting Edge of Science”. I don't know if the novel lives up to this but it is certainly interesting if not badly paced. After the original excitement of the discovery of a mysterious globe the novel soon becomes one of a person running from those who want to take it away. The ending is a bit of an anti-climax but by and large the novel is well written and should keep up the interest (as long as you have lots of caffeine in you).

Rating: “Average, but who wants to be average?”

Genre: Science Fiction
