Book Review: Off Armageddon Reef by David Webercategories: Books, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Military Science Fiction
Author: David Weber
Publisher: Tor Books
Not a Good BookIn my opinion this book is an average attempt - which makes it pretty weak since even the best novels of Weber (interesting as they might be) suffer from his peculiar and unnerving style. I don't recommend it to anyone except people addicted to this writer and maybe somebody who hasn't yet read anything by Weber.
My not the most important but unnerving nitpick is also the sex change. Nimue changed her sex - but the software remained. Why does the author consider changing just the body important enough to later differentiate between Nimue and Merlin? It would have made sense if Merlin was an AI remotely controlled by Nimue. As it is, I guess the author simply HAS to have a male protagonist. Interesting though how it comes out in translation to gender-heavy grammar languages?
