Just longer than a novella, but not long enough to feel like a novel, THE FREEZE-FRAME REVOLUTION is a smartly written stand alone story with enough meat around the edges to easily be expanded into a longer work if the author ever wished. If you’ve never read Watts before, this new novel is an excellent place to start.
THE BEST SCI FI BOOKS recommends the book.
I’m a big fan of author Peter Watts, and this novella THE FREEZE-FRAME REVOLUTION doesn’t disappoint. Interesting characters, fascinating science, and just great storytelling.
Recommendation: Buy it, like most of Watts’ books.
Regina Schroeder at BOOKLIST ONLINE enjoys the story.
Told in a perfectly human voice—someone who questions and shifts his or her stand on things, who has unusual friendships and clings to small details—this is a genuinely pleasing story. Although it certainly could sustain greater length, the latest from Watts (Blindsight, 2006) packs a significant punch into a small package
