Meta (Meta, #1)

Cover for Meta (Meta, #1)


I grade books like Roger Ebert grad­ed movies: com­pared to ex­pec­ta­tion­s.

If I am giv­en an ac­claimed clas­sic like A Can­ti­cle for Lei­bow­itz, and it ends up claim­ing ba­bies suf­fer­ing ag­o­niz­ing deaths are a good thing be­cause god likes to see them go through it, and has no moral prob­lems with that, even propos­ing that as the su­pe­ri­or moral po­si­tion, the gross­ness of its ide­ol­o­gy makes it hard for me to ig­nore that the book's ar­gu­ment is al­so crap, so 1 star.

On the oth­er hand, you have books like Meta. Clas­sic? No. Ac­claimed? No. Fun? Sure. Bad­ly writ­ten? No. A quick read that leaves you won­der­ing what hap­pens nex­t? Yes. So 3 stars.
