Synopsis

NOMINATED FOR A NEBULA AWARD. Walter Jon Williams’ classic science fantasy Metropolitan is once again available for a new generation of readers.

Aiah has fought her way from poverty and discovered a limitless source of plasm, the mysterious substance that powers the world-city. Her discovery soon involves her with Constantine, the charismatic, dangerous, seductive revolutionary who plans to overthrow, not simply the government, but the cosmic order . . .


“A spectacular blend of fantastic science, high politics, and low intrigue . . . Williams’s world and characters are richly imagined yet utterly real.”
—Melissa Scott

“Entertaining . . . Williams understands that science fiction can breathe life into language . . . [His] writing is always lean, lively and engaging.

Metropolitan
Average rating
3.5 / 5
Good effort
November 8th, 2014
It's OK ish, meaning there is room for improvement. More character development, better explanation of the world the main protagonists live in, less (repetitive) use of metaphors and adjectives, and more details about how the events shape the environment and personalities in the book. Enjoyable, but not exciting yet... Thank you writer.
