My review of 'Kiln People' by David Brin is right below this post, and I need to say it contains some pretty big spoilers.  I've tried to keep my reviews open to whatever I think is important to note about a novel, and I've tried to keep my posts pretty general and not delve too deep into the specifics of a novel.  The problem is they're all posted right here, one after the other.  So if you don't want to know any secrets about 'Kiln People' don't scroll any further down. 

I stumbled across Kiln not knowing anything at all about it, and I've got to say it's an interesting way to approach the book.  There's some problems there for sure, but overall it's a really fun read.  Though I would say to read 'Earth' first, Brin's novel from the early nineties.  There are some similarities between the two and I think it would be important to read that other novel before starting Kiln.

I've moved on to reading 'Throne of the Crescent Moon' by Saladin Ahmed.  I feel like I need to read all the nominees for his year before I can complain about 'Caliban's War' not being nominated for anything.  So, it looks like if I want to complain about any sort of award snubs I need to get to reading.  Prepare yourself for all sorts of complaints here in like six weeks, so long as I don't end up thinking all these books are better than Caliban.  We'll see.
