Pirate Utopia by Bruce Sterling
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was an odd book as it feels more like a really interesting outline for a novel where the author got carried away and included scenes and dialogue. There's an interesting premise here, but just as it begins... it ends. (The book is only 160 pages long.) Because of the new trend to write series, I was worried this was book one of many. I'm glad it's not, but at the same time, it's unfortunate there isn't more here. I was just starting to get into the characters and the unique setting which is an alternate history of the small city of Fiume just after World War I. Despite the interesting premise, it's not really worthwhile.
