Finished McGahan’s newie

Ok, so I did manage to finish this. Well, it had a few interesting twists, some plausible, some not so I’m afraid. the bad guys turn out to be our government after all, I won’t give you the details, but hey, it is distopian, you’d guessed that already right?
Our hero, does not save the day, which is refreshing, but he is saved. I won’t give away who saved him. Some of the plot events are a little far fetched, even for me, and I like fantasy novels. So it will be interesting to see what the lit crits make of this one.
All up it was worth reading, but maybe my expectations were too high; I loved White Earth and expected a similarly high level of prose and plot. I got the high level prose.
