In my opinion, Splinter by Adam Roberts was poorly written but at least provided me with an idea I hadn’t seen before. I didn’t love this book because it was very hard to follow and underwhelming for such a cool idea. I had never read anything with this idea before and I was expecting a lot just to be let down.
