So I decided after reading the Dr Who Moorcock novel it would be nice to read some of his other books. I bought the Dancers at the End of Time trilogy while I was in Hay on Wye cause it had such a great title. This was a nice light fun book. A dying decedant society struggles to keep itself amused as they have all the power in the world and the galaxy is ending around them. They've totally lost contact with what it means to be "human", all done in a great ridiculous and light hearted way, as despite their decedance they are all very innocent.
I found the characters mostly appealing, I adored the setting, and found the return to the 19th century quite a disturbing shift. The way Jherek became the ultimate innocent and totally clueless was quite nice. Though I had wish his love interest had had a bit more development.
A nice light novel to read while on holiday and I started the second one right away....Continua
