Once again, Simmons impressed me with his ability to write an excellent story, whatever the genre.

Darwin's Blade

It's immediately apparent from the many accident reconstructions throughout the novel that the author has done his research. Everyhing is backed up by hard science , from the rocket car and bus accident related at the beginning of the book to Darwin's work on the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster Simmons has made him the man who first determined that at least four of the astronaut s survived the initial explosion and were killed two minutes and forty-fice seconds later when the wreckage slammed into the Atlantic.

Yet he avoids the problem common to many writers where the science can turn into dry recitation of facts and figures, and keeps the story and the action flowing.

Simmons also seems to have a fondness for urban legends. As I mentioned above, he opens the book with one of the most famous, and turns several more into accidents being investigated.

And the book even ends with an incident bearing a lot of similarity to another one about a chicken cannon used by the FAA. Enough of the original urban myth s are preserved to make them indentifiable, but he manages to work them seamlessly into the story as if they are actual event s. Overall, Darwin's Blade confirmed for me that Dan Simmons is much more than a great science fiction author or horror writer; he's a master storyteller.

I found myself caring about the characters, and wondering about their motivations. In addition to the plot, throughout the first half of the book, speculation about Darwin's dark and classified past kept be turning the pages, and through the second half I heartily enjoyed watching him embrace that past and put it to good use. I almost managed to talk myself into taking a day off of work to finish the book and I might have done just that if I'd actually had any leave left.
