Robert Charles Wilson

Spin by Robert Charles WilsonI made the decision to get this book after reading this post by Patrick Nielsen Hayden. Even though he has an interest in the book doing well his passion for the work was obvious to see. Taking into consideration the many positive reviews in the comments the purchase became a foregone conclusion.
The story is told from the perspective of Tyler Dupree. In one stream he recounts the story of his life as measured against the mysterious "Spin" and his friendship with the Lawtons. The second, alternating, stream takes place in his current day.
I don't know if it would be at all helpful to go into any further detail with the plot - the book unfolds beautifully and the plot, ideas and characters are never less than fascinating.
This is one of the best science fiction books I've read in a very long time. I suspect it's even better than The Chronoliths and if you read my review of that you can see how impressed I was.
If you have any love for science fiction do yourself a favour and read this book.

Rating: A+
