Splinter Review

A fine and detailed analysis of Adam Roberts's Splinter, here at Post-Weird Thoughts.

Very well written, Splinter is not only a page-turner, but it´s also a veritable meditation on how one can choose to cope with a situation (any situation) or simply remain apart, but never entirely aside of it. It´s an elegant twist of the old Eldridge Cleaver saying "You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem". Hector is torn apart for not knowing even if there is a problem in the first place - but he chooses not to discover the truth. And that´s his undoing.
