Firewalkers Reviews

  • Hélène Louise
    A very good novel in a young adult science-fiction after post apocalyptic scenery.I appreciated that the post apocalyptic aspect wasn't too much moralising, letting the place for the story to unfold and expand, as an inventive and rather creepy tale!I also loved the three main characters, each one h...

    The first review on GR! :)I was pretty thrilled to get the copy on Netgalley. So much so that I had to read it the same day. Am I nuts? Or am I just a Firewalker at heart?Gritty, depressing, and like a Hobbsian nightmare, these people live in a hothouse city on life support, barely kept alive becaus...

    This book had two principal effects on me. One was to make me really, really want to read Shadows of the Apt. Adrian Tchaikovsky’s been one of those people in the “I’ve heard his name, and I should get to him at some point, but really I’ve got so many books to read that if I?...

The only thing I know will be true is that it will be an imaginative and richly textured piece of work.That's not to say everything he writes is a hit f...

    Don't believe it's possible for fiction to be enthralling whilst also addressing urgent topical issues? Then let Mr Tchaikovsky prove you wrong in Firewalkers. Not only does it explore the links between class and climate change but it discusses capitalism and its issues, the vastly different lives o...

    3.5 stars I'm swaying between 3 and 4 stars and I can't decide in witch direction I should go. So it stays without rating for the time being.It is Adrian Tchaikovsky and so I have to compare it to his own works. When I look at his novels I rated 4 stars "Firewalkers" can't quite reach their quality ...
