    1. I ve been an engineer, barman, skip lorry driver, coalman, boat window manufacturer, contract grass cutter and builder Now I write science fiction books, and am slowly getting over the feeling that someone is going to find me out, and can call myself a writer without wincing and ducking my head As professions go, I prefer this one I don t have to clock in, change my clothes after work, nor scrub sensitive parts of my body with detergent I think I ll hang around.Source blogger profile 139339

    One thought on “Prador Moon

    1. Very readable and extremely quick paced action adventure with buggy aliens vs AI enhanced humanity in some distant future.Sound familiar Well, yeah, it is But still Lots of modern concepts thrown in, from virtual realities, fake matter pocket universes, and bio enhanced pheromone enslaved monstrous race of aliens Add elements, mix well, and let the fur fly Seriously, I ve read much worse and the quality is pretty top notch There s even a few easter eggs for you peeps who want a little poetry or [...]


    2. 2.5 stars.Neal Asher makes Alastair Reynolds look like soft science fiction, and Vernor Vinge look like fantasy I picked up this book after hearing that a Neal Asher was a lot like Alastair Reynolds, and b that this particular book was a good place to start his Polity series And, I will admit, the plot sounded just ridiculous enough to be a good summer read humans finally meet their first non human sentient species, only to be appalled to find that they re ginormous carnivorous crab like critter [...]


    3. 4 Stars I am a huge Neal Asher fan and absolutely loved the Spatterjay series I have read several other novels of his and decided to go back to the beginning Wow, it really paid off being well versed in world of the Polity I loved this book and could not put it from down This is an action novel and a thriller about alien contact It works as a state to the massive world of the Polity and the Prador Jebel U Cap Krong is one serious bad ass dude that I loved What a fun read and amazing start to Ash [...]


    4. Prador Moon is like a perfect pop song When done right it seems deceptively simple, even obvious but underneath we can see the workings of a genius applying their craft Prador Moon is an intensely focused blast of sugary Science Fiction action goodness It achieves the rare feat of being incredibly exciting from the first page to last.Normally if I read SF reviews that describe epic space battles lots of action even evil aliens I would immediately avoid it as I tend to HATE action and military or [...]


    5. Many of you, like me, may have gone to a grocery store, and noticed the crappy mascots on the store brand cereals This sort of feels like a store brand version of Iain M Banks s Culture series, but it s still entertaining for all that.


    6. Another A superior outing from Asher This is the thirteenth book I ve read by him so I knew what to expect and i wasnt disappointed Drones, AIs, space battles, person to person combat, augmented humans everything you want in a science fiction book, with a few, yay, go humans scenes thrown in.


    7. this is no space opera, minus two ships running after each other for a brief period.on par with The Culture books,you can also catch two ships running after each other there also ,and now that i thought about ,there is also people who rebel against the AI machines as a main theme in the story Ha 4 alsos that must be a record and i have read recently an article about how the brain works ,and it sends all the mind augmentation theories to the shitterand most of the science here is super pretentiou [...]


    8. 3 1 2 stars Tom Clancy goes to space I think Prador Moon is a good example of the so called new or modern space opera or not so new, at least for the last two decades However, I think this novel my first, I don t know for the rest of the series do not reach in excellence other authors known in this subgenre like the masters Peter F Hamilton or the missed Iain Banks What is about Prador Moon In two sentences The Polity is an human interstellar empire ruled by artificial intelligences When the the [...]


    9. Unadulterated shlock Gigantic crab like, intelligent, space going creatures with a taste for human flesh You hope they don t phone home Go for it, Peter


    10. When I read Dark Intelligence, I was aware that I lost 20 30% of the content because I haven t read the rest of the Polity Universe series I decided to go back to the beginning and start with the first chronological book in the universe Prador Moon.The novel describes the beginning of the war between the Polity human AI union and crab like Prador While they do not possess artificial intelligence, they achieved the technological advancement on their own and it is uniquely suitable for war The Pol [...]


    11. A fun and action packed space opera adventure, Prador Moon is a first contact story told with plenty of firepower This is the first Neal Asher book I ve read and I understand it is a prequel of sorts to his other novels set in the Polity Universe a future where humanity has colonised a number of worlds but has left the running of civilization to AIs who are also the only ones capable of using FTL gateways.While the story is simple and the antagonists unapologetically and irredeemably evil partic [...]


    12. 2 1 2 stars I should have known better before reading Asher s Polity Universe prequel, because the SFX blurb on the cover said something about sex and violence and excellent aliens Well the sex scenes were scarce and boring, while the violence was abundant and explicit And the aliens cartoonish In fact, what saves Asher from a 1 star rating is that he knows that, and plays into the pulp and trash genre Newsnet services she auged into carried the same incredible comic book stories The images she [...]


    13. I liked this book it was like a documentary with no narrator just jump cuts for one critical or interesting scene to another While that made the book fascinating it was also hard to read In internal chronological order this is the first book in a series of Neal Asher s Polity stories Some of the books are stand alone novels while others are part of a story arc I don t think he intended this book to be an introduction to his world but it is where I started Story wise it has the format of a disast [...]


    14. If Neal Asher would have passed the rough draft of this story to Alistair Reynolds House of Suns for help with character development, this book would have been five stars Not quite as enjoyable or convincing as the author s Spatterjay Trilogy, but still a very enjoyable read And a shout out to the bad ass commando Jebel Kronghooyah


    15. Of course I am giving this a 5 out of 5 Any Neal Asher book deserves that I ve found How this man is able to do damn good space opera at any length is beyond me ha ha but it is a calling I guess.

    17. The supposedly all powerful Polity gets a rude shock from a band of murderous space crabs.Forming the backdrop to the majority of Asher s books, the Polity is a vast human empire run by mostly beneficent Artificial Intelligences It is the home of luxury, tolerance and generally fulfilling lives for its billions of citizens In a galaxy studded with the archeological remains of long dead races, there s been no contact with an extant space faring civilisation Until now.Prador Moon details the Polit [...]


    18. As I m also currently reading Ian M Banks Surface Detail, I couldn t really help comparing and contrasting the two Both are space operas featuring a human spacefaring civilisation Asher s Culture equivalent is called the Polity and both authors are known for their gritty and somewhat dark depictions of violence and brutality But when I was plowing through another of Banks breezy discursions on the wonders of the Culture, the power of Asher s economical exposition really became apparent Prador Mo [...]


    19. The basic premise of the book is that monstrous aliens have invaded human occupied stystems killing and eating anything in their path, and now humans must find a way to hold them off The story was entertaining, albeit not too original Asher gives the reader two main points of view with a few others scattered along the way including the aliens Some of the tech is interesting, but considering the length of the book nothing is really expanded on, much like the two main characters who are only itere [...]


    20. This is space opera Well conceived, fast paced, galactic war Men and women off the street rise to the challenge of first contact with an alien species who will devour us literally and figuratively The science is plausible, which is not a given in modern SF The writing is up to the challenge And minimal typos.The cast is large and diffused enough as the narrative jumps to their points of view to get the reader fully engaged but keep the energy up.Interesting subplot about human society being run [...]


    21. Prador moon isnt exactly high art, its a combination of hard science meets sci fi horror with a does of camp and its non the worse for it.Sure theres not much character development, sure the whole thing seems a bit disorganized, the end is fulfilling and it lapses into techno babble BUT its enjoyable.Theres a profound sense of childish joy and reading about giant murderous well armed crabs tearing across human world Somehow super camp badguys, space battles and crab death matches make up for the [...]


    22. I really enjoyed this book Mr Asher is one of my favorite writters and he has not failed me yet Science used on such a grand scale for war is sad, but the human races back is up against the wall in this one against an alien race that see us as a snack to nibble on, so the gloves have to come off No adorable E.T comes a calling, like your worst nightmare in the form of a crab like monster, ramped up to the size of a pick up truck.Put it this way, this book going to put you off seafood for a whil [...]



    23. I tried to chalk my dislike of this novel up to the fact that military sci fi isn t really my genre, but that s not it I don t dislike military sci fi when done well This book was simply not done well However, if military sci fi is your genre, you might be able to overlook some of its flaws.First of all, the book is riddled with typos and quite poorly written I kept getting pulled out of the story because of the awkwardness of a sentence, or because a passage was rendered incomprehensible on fir [...]


    24. I picked this up out of curiosity after seen Neal Asher on the local SF book store What I was after was a straight forward space opera I thought anything than that would be a bonus And yes, that s what I got Several other reviewers has complained that this book might not be as good as Neal Asher is supposed to be And having read it, I think I can see that there is capacity here, there s good pacing, and interesting characters However, there s also a shallowness in the story, the world building [...]


    25. January s book group selection Book one in the Polity series I ve already read Gridlinked, Line of the Polity, Brass Man, and Polity Agent, which are in the Agent Cormac series Polity comes before those in a loose timeline This book starts off gripping, becomes thoroughly engaging, and is a lot like a twisty windy covered water slide you know you re going somewhere fast, it s intense, and will end with a big Splash For starters, the Prador were some of the creepiest, nastiest aliens I have read [...]


    26. Pardor Moon is the story a space station that is attacked during an ambassadorial visit by the Pardor to the Polity, and the aftermath of such attack.This book was at times very interesting, and but at most times, it was dis jointed and never felt that had any focus Solid writing, and some very good characters Despite being very short, the book never felt that it had any focus The intial story of the attack by the Pardor is interesting, and I quite liked it, but after that attack, we are moved a [...]


    27. I read this after the first three Agent Cormac novels Gridlinked, The Line Of Polity, and Brass Man Prador Moon is the first book chronologically in the Polity universe and is a stand alone novel It was exactly what I expected action, violence, and strange aliens The highlights from humanity s first run in with another sentient species are recorded here, mainly through the eyes of a soldier and a technician This is after the Polity is formed, so humanity is already governed by artificial intelli [...]


    28. I was told about Neal Asher by a friend who said my writing style was reminiscent of him So, of course, I had to go find out Boy am I glad I did Prador Moon is the opening salvo in a war between the Human and AI controlled Polity and a nasty, crab like, alien race called the Prador.If you re looking for deep character arcs with people staring at their navels and coming to a realization of their inner motivation or something this ain t the place This is pure, rip roaring, hold onto your pants bec [...]


    29. Prador Moon is the first Neal Asher novel i ve yet read and although it was certainly a rollicking action fest that hit all the marks man eating crabs, check, insanely powerful weapons, check, kick ass but dark military protagonist, check, hilariously awesome ending, check It didn t hit the right notes for me and i m at a loss to explain why It did seem somewhat rushed, somewhat distanced from the action, whereas most of my favorite space opera Reynolds, Moon, Banks tend to be very close in to t [...]
