Book Review – The Children of Time

Children of TimeChildren of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m not Mary Jane Watson. I don’t like spiders. And if I’d realized The Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky was about spiders, I wouldn’t have picked it up. But by the time I realized my mistake, it was too late–I was sucked in by the story. The creative, inventive, totally engrossing story. About spiders. And who would have believed that by the end of the story, I would be rooting for the little buggers?

The Children of Time is excellent science fiction filled to the brim with space flight, technology, and alien culture. It makes a point I’ve been saying for years–spiders are aliens waiting to take over the world.
