The Dark Space inside each of us

SOO_Dark Space_US_TNFabulous and thoughtful review of Dark Space by Deadline Zombie! A great read in itself.

The Dark Space inside each of us.

“De Pierres has written a beautiful, touching story. This is one of those novels which doesn’t spoon feed you – it throws you straight into the action, so be prepared to hit the ground running. However I found the lack of ‘hand-holding’ very refreshing. Don’t feel that you can’t go back and read bits again – I most certainly did.”

 

New Dark Space review

Mark Webb reviews Dark Space for the Australian Women Writers 2013 Reading Challenge. Here is an excerpt,

“Italian is not the first culture you expect to see represented in a space opera. This created an interesting point of difference from a lot of other books. The repressed role of women on Araldis provided the source of a lot of the conflict in the novel. It was interesting to think about how some cultural traits that we consider backwards could flourish if the cohort who supports them were to get their own planet.”
