Robert Charles Wilson – Blind Lake

Robert Charles Wilson - Blind LakeThis was rather an accidental find when talking to a friend about Robert Wilson, until it turned out we were talking about different people. He refered to Robert Charles Wilson, an author of science fiction novels. So later on I ordered a book of his, Blind Lake. I must say it is really well written and also had a nice idea. But… well, the novel turned out to be rather longish and the story is closer to a fiction soap than thrilling science. Especially, as a regular scifi reader, the core idea is soon known and fleshed out, while the book has so many more pages, overall going on over a love plot that ends as expected, too.
