    I wanna give half stars! This book didn’t totally blow my mind (like, say, The Road), but it was a really solid space opera. 4.5.

    I think of Greg Bear as the kind of writer who’s willing to take a big idea with big consequences, and then actually explore those consequences. Mr. Wilson does the same, here, in Spin, and I think executes it quite well. The mystery is well delivered, the narrative well paced, the characters interesting and fairly realistic, and the examination of the consequences of his idea, both on the individual characters as well as the earth (and universe) at large, is fascinating and compelling. Definitely worth a read.
