Book Review – The Collapsing Empire

The Collapsing EmpireThe Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In this futuristic novel, since FTL was not possible, a physical distortion of time and space called the Flow manifested itself very fortuitously,  enabling humanity to spread all over the galaxy.

What was the Flow? “A multidimensional brane-like metacosmological structure that intersects with local time-space in a topographically complex manner, influenced partially and chaotically but not primarily by gravity, in which the ships accessing it don’t move in any traditional sense…” and more such mumbo-jumbo.

I call this book a poor man’s version of Peter F. Hamilton’s impeccably crafted space operas.
