Wow Is This Bad

Even Gary Russell sheepishly admits that this novel is not particularly good. Dreadful is the most apt adjective. The plot makes little sense. The worst part is the Cat-People themselves. These come off as 1950's C movie alien baddies, like the Lobster Man. Every cat cliché imaginable gets used, down to the kitty-litter. The book might have made a half-decent pardody, had it been written that way.

Not too bad

A little slow in places, but not as dreadful as the reputation that preceeds it. The book fleshes out Ben and especially Polly, and I liked their reactions to 1990's technology and society. The ideas are all there in the story but just out of grasp of the reader. I didn't come away from it with feelings releif that it was over, but neither did i go 'Wow, that was awesome'.
