    Do you enjoy space opera with a little Caribbean flavor Do wormholes and rum sound like the perfect mixture for a good time If you are like me and let s hope you are not, that could be messy , you likely have no standard in which to answer these questions I could count on one hand how many Caribbean flavored space operas I ve read, and still be sporting a closed fist at the end Yes that s right, zero Caribbean space operas for me I suddenly feel so sheltered.Luckily, Tobias Buckell decided Do you enjoy space opera with a little Caribbean flavor Do wormholes and rum sound like the perfect mixture for a good time If you are like me and let s hope you are not, that could be messy , you likely have no standard in which to answer these questions I could count on one hand how many Caribbean flavored space operas I ve read, and still be sporting a closed fist at the end Yes that s right, zero Caribbean space operas for me I suddenly feel so sheltered.Luckily, Tobias Buckell decided to enlighten me and write Ragamuffin , a Caribbean styled space opera extravaganza minus the singing and dancing I can honestly say it is the best one I ve ever read, but that doesn t add to this discussion Ragamuffin takes place in the same universe Buckell created in his fine debut novel, Crystal Rain However, it is not a straight sequel, butof a standalone with a few recurring elements The characters of John deBrun, P...

    When I read Crystal Rain in 2008, I thought it was one of the freshest science fiction novels I had read in a long time It was an exciting adventure story taking place in a well developed culture It explored the idea of what would happen if a human colony got cut off from all the other human colonies I liked it so much, that I did put Ragamuffin on my mental to look for list I finally checked a copy out of the library and sat down to read it Sadly, I was quite disappointed You know how a b When I read Crystal Rain in 2008, I thought it was one of the freshest science fiction novels I had read in a long time It was an exciting adventure story taking plac...

    I found myself wishing someone would make Ragamuffin into a movie Or rather, a mini series, because making it a movie would require remove about three quarters of the plot, but I think most of it could fit into a mini series It s got a very cinematic quality Nashara, the protagonist, does not indulge in a lot of introspection When faced with problems, she generally responds with the extremely precise application of violence, or perhapsaccurately, forcefully applied kinetic energy.It co I found myself wishing someone would make Ragamuffin into a movie Or rather, a mini series, because making it a...

    Just as fast paced and exciting as book 1 However, if you re expecting the story to pick up anywhere near where Crystal Rain left off, you re in for a shock The story starts in a completely different place literally and introduces us to the much larger universe Then about one third of the way through it takes a sharp left turn and brings us back to familiar characters and locations And it all works better than I thought it would The cover art is fantastic, as is the scene it depicts.The Just as fast paced and exciting as book 1 However, if you re expecting the story to pick up anywhere near where Crystal Rain left off, you re in for a shock The story starts in a completely different place literally and introduces us to the much larger universe Then about one third of the way through it takes a sharp left turn and brings us back to...

    This is the 2nd book in the Xenowealth Series by Tobias S Buckell In most series the 1st book is the best and they go down hill from there In this case the 2nd book, Ragamuffin, is much better than the 1st book, Crystal Rain I m not saying that Crystal Rain was a bad read because it was in fact a good read This book is just much better In this one while the humans trapped on the planet New Anegada a.k.a Nanagada are dealing with their new found freedom from the alien Teotl the rest of hum This is the 2nd book in the Xenowealth Series by Tobias S Buckell In most series the 1st book is the best and they go down hill from there In this case the 2nd book, Ragamuffin, is much better than the 1st book, Crystal Rain I m not saying that Crystal Rain was a bad read because it w...

    As I mentioned in my review of Crystal Rain , I enjoyed reading Tobias Buckell s debut novel, but I enjoyed reading the sequel, Ragamuffin Tor, 2008 , evenThis may be because Buckell has grown as a writer or it may be because Ragamuffin isa traditional galaxy spanning space opera, one of my favorite subgenres But another reason is that there areprominent libertarian themes in Ragamuffin than there were in Crystal Rain, enough that it ...
