This felt like a big book to me. Whether it was because I took some time adjusting to the genre, or because the author takes his time fleshing out his characters and the world, it may have felt like a big read but it was certainly not a tedious one.
Jason M. Hough is a genius in building his character arcs and pulling you in, you will either love or hate each of the characters, and some of them you will dislike to start and grow to love toward the end of the book.
All in all, this is a fantastic read filled with fantastical characters, from psychopaths to eccentric friends and mysterious aliens to scary zombie like creatures, this is a world I was desperate to keep reading and I can't wait to read the next chapter.
As an added bonus, these books were all released in quick succession so I am now off to buy the next one, and then probably the next.
Jason has a strong grasp of narrative prose and keeps the tension just so. I was a little disappointed in some of the character renderings that were a little shallow. My hope is that in the next in the series these will be fleshed out a little more so as to add additional depth to the storyline. All in all though I am glad I took a break from my list but will endeavour to get back to it as soon as I have finished books two and three in this series. A good read that promises more. I will keep you posted.

I don't need to say more than buy this book. The impetus to read it will overcome you within the first few pages.
What puts The Darwin Elevator above the crowd is hints of Big Ideas, in the mysterious plan of The Builders, enigmatic aliens responsible for constructing a space elevator in Darwin, Australia and then releasing the SUBS plague which utterly destroyed human civilization five years prior to the events of the book. Definitely a great and mysterious Outside Context Problem.
This wasn't the best novel I've ever read, but it was good fun, and solid enough to make me want to check out the sequel.
