VERDICT 28 stars not rounded up A good but not great Red Planet story marred by the first slow 23 but it nearly makes up for it when things finally get interesting after 'The Gathering' part If you enjoy coming of age tales set on other planets give this book a consideration Note The format a psychiatrist relating previous dialogue from a teen girl is a bit unusualdistracting but it eventually pays off mostly

Like Orbital Resonance this is of a side story in Barnes' interconnected Century Next Door books than the main event double Kaleidoscope Century and Candle First person narration between two viewpoint characters that ends up kludgy because both viewpoints involve clumsy amounts of exposition Strong ending though that fits the overall arc of the series' titular century of a war of all against all in the end there's really no victor just survivors at varying levels of damage

It occassionally happens that a clever ending redeems for me a fairly pedestrian bookThe Sky so Big and Black is a rambling incredibly detailed story of human life on the Mars colony established by 4 waves of refugees from the conflicts and devestation on Earth in the latter part of our new century In other words the backstory is the main story and the book is really a prophecy in disguiseA favorite patient has contacted her old shrink signalling an emergency of some sort Barnes uses the techniue of having the main character revealed only through taped transcriptions of their earlier interviews so all her remarks are addressed to Doc Personally I am not fond of this methodfinding it a bit static preferring to get directly inside the characters head Almost the entire book is taken up with this review the real time episodes consisting of the alcoholic ramblings of the old Doc with many detours and asides about life on Earth and the end of civilization there Barnes also has the fairly irritating habit which I find puzzling and coy of assuming the reader already knows the slang essentially leaving us to figure out what the heck he is talking about interspersed with plodding and methodical decriptions of procedures and things that don't existSomehow and this is hard to describe without spoilers a thread that runs throught he entire bookis pulled out and the whole tone of the book shifts Just as the narrator comes to awareness so we do get the story in focusIn the end I am left with a fond impression of the life of a roundichi and a sharper awareness of some fuzzy areas in my understanding of certain concepts Food for thought so ultimately worth the plodding pace A book for rereading
