Rather, there is something disturbing about approaching military science as if it were all so awesome.A public-affairs officer is “likeable”, a medical researcher “gorgeous”.To find humour in the carnage of war, a writer must walk a fine line, and most of the time Roach does so deftly.

It has a fantastic first line–“He was one hundred and seventy days dying and not yet dead.” I loved the far-future neo-Victorian feel of this Count of Monte Cristo retelling and the integration of the Tiger! The main character is unsympathetic and unreliable yet goes through a complete transformation.Near the end, a character is hit on the head and suffers synaesthesia (which I found so cool I wrote a sestina about synaesthesia and won 0 in a contest at university), and Bester had fun mixing the senses with wonderful phrases like “Indigo undulated with sickening speed like a slithering snake,” which I just love.This was definitely one of the books that turned me from a reader to a reader who wanted to write.8) One Book I’m Intending to Read This has been on my list for a few weeks, and slowly but surely I’m inching my way toward it.
