When my assistant brought this book home as part of her grad school semester reading I thought I'd give it a try remembering how much I liked the author's RIVER OF GODS a couple of years ago Now I have to say that McDonald is one of the best world builders I've ever readThis is about the colonization of the moon by industrial entrepreneurs who supply an energy short Earth where jobs for human beings are scarce and expensive higher education is needed for anyone to get ahead The cast of characters is perfectly varied One is a woman newly arrived from the earth and on her way to starving of food and of oxygen before she gets a lucky break Other leads are members of one family the Cortas that is trying to claw its way onto the uppermost level of lunar rule having reached its very outskirts Most remarkable is the matriarch who came when the moon is first being colonizedmined and formed as a new social economic sexual and governing system based solely on gain and loss Others of her family are as diverse as the culture itself Carlos the roughneck surface miner and fighter; Lucasinho the spoiled darling son who bakes cakes has sex with anyone who allows it and struggles to defy his family; Lucas the obedient son who desires than anything to run the family company and Ariel the brilliant attorney who aspires to lunar not family power Arrayed with these people are their servants their mates the women who carry bear and nurse their children and the people who maintain their machines and their industries in addition to their many cyber and human guards Against them are the four great families of the moon who despise them as social and business climbers with no right to the affairs of the government's top tableIt only takes a few small battles a few small betrayals and one shift in the power structure for everything to change and there's no way to tell if it's for the better or the worst You'll have to read for yourself It's fascinating the cultures McDonald has created in this world Sex is anything goes for anyone There is an entire group of people that is born with a body chemistry that responds to phases of the moon and prefers to associate and run with one another during some of those phases There is a Christian Church that ministers to people here but there is also a Sisterhood that is comprised partly of South American religions with other elements many of the immigrants to this moon came from Latin America the first part of the world to lose jobs and education to computers and robots The world is built in layers tunneled down into the rock and tunnels are adapted to luxury habitats for the wealthy Everyone has a fixture in their eyes that registers how much air water food and information they have paid for and the gods help them if they run outBest of all McDonald is one of those rare sf writers who does not over indulge in info dumps Some are unavoidable in a story about technology industry and the medicine of the future but I am green with envy over how much he conveys within the stream of the story I've ordered at least three of his books yes hardcover plus my own copy of this one to join what I expect will be a growing Ian McDonald shelf

Read all my reviews at moon has a cold heartFor me this was a frustratingly great read which should have received a full five stars However due to the many many mistakes I had to lower my rating Hailed the “Game of Domes” the story follows one of the five dynasties or ‘Dragons’ who control the moon We follow all members of the Corta family and some others through their various political financial and romantic challenges McDonald cites the Godfather as a key influence and you can see that throughout The interfamily struggles and the battles with the other Dragons are all handled superbly and remain intriguing all the way from start to finish McDonald won a Gaylactic Spectrum Award in 2016 for this book which was well deserved In the world he has created discrimination against sexuality doesn’t exist and people can marry whoever they want Reading this gave me hope for what could become a reality hopefully sooner rather than later Another great thing about this story is McDonald’s description of the difference between poor and rich Anyone who has ever been in financial difficulty will be able to relate to this Poverty stretches time And poverty is an avalanche One tiny slippage knocks on another knocks loose yet others and everything is sliding rushing away The might and magic of money is not what it allows you to own; it is what it allows you to be Money is freedomCharactersThe characters are sculpted really well probably one of the crowning achievements of the book is how McDonald is able to write so many good characters storylines trials and tribulations within 400 pages A lesser author might have had to write 800 pages but McDonald is able to write concisely which moves the story along Notable issuesThe writing is altogether beautiful jarring and erroneous Most frustrating of all is the sheer amount of errors I’m not sure who is at fault but another pass by the editor should have fixed this Forgetting to include full stops at the end of sentences or place commas anywhere in sentences that clearly need them are huge mistakes in my view And this happens often There is a whole interaction in chapter four where speech marks are totally forgotten about There are just some obvious spelling mistakes blood oh two O2 Plashing Splashing There is an absolute doosey near the end where something is happening between the Cortas and the MacKenzies In the Corta dock Rafa Lucas Wagner and Ariel Mackenzie It isn’t the Mackenzies it’s the Cortas Some of the writer’s style choices annoyed me namely his need to say things three times Every time this happened it jarred me out of the story To me it was a bit much out of boredom and familiarity and monotony Flat flat flat Monotony monotony monotony Is it a minimalist refuge from the endless voices and colours and noise and rush of people people people all wrong and real real real I just saw faces faces faces all around me uestion after uestion uestions three hours of uestions Details Memories Tell me again again again I might just be nit picking but all of the above and the multiple other mistakes throughout the book tear you out of the world in your head and stop the flow of the story Above all they could’ve been easily fixed Final thoughtYou shouldn’t let my minor rant about the mistakes above stop you from reading the book It was a great story and I will be reading the next book very shortly release date 23 March This should have been a five star book as it got everything right it was just too many errors that knocked down my rating

Brilliant I devoured this book over a few days skipping television and movie options to just immerse myself into the low gravity I'm still depressurizingI've seen this book called Game of Thrones in Space and I'd have to say not so much Only in the sense that it would make a fantastic series on HBO which would compare I've also seen it compared to Dallas and there is a bit of that but the most accurate comparison is easily The Godfather That bookmovie's sense of family and survival against long odds and adversaries definitely struck of a moonbeam hereWhen is the seuel coming out That one will shoot straight to the top of my TBR as soon as it's available
