    Frustrating to start, because of the way it begins 4 different, seemingly unconnected stories but well worth getting through to the second half where everything begins to make sense.

    This book has two main issues, and bizarrely they re the opposites of each other The novel follows cohorts of characters on three separate worlds, with no apparent link between any of them It s frustrating spending 30 pages with one character, jumping to another and then another and then finally making it back to the first world only to be introduced to yet another stranger The passage of time is marked poorly within and between the worlds, and it takes a while to work out exactly when events This book has two main issues, and bizarrely they re the opposites of each other The novel follows cohorts of characters on three separate worlds, with no apparent link between any of them It s frustrating spending 30 pages with one character, jumping to another and then another and then finally making it back to the first world only to be introduced to yet another stranger The passage of time is marked poorly within and between the worlds, and it takes a while to work out exactly when events are happening, which brings confusion when the characters do finally meet up Then, in the final 100 pages everything starts to come together and the book sheds it s diffuse nature for a direct, bare bones ending Characters meet, travel and die without preamble Men from different worlds instantly team up to destroy a government, nothing happens unless it explicitly advances the plot This and then style of writing is a sprint to the finish line, but with so many one dimensional characters driving the story it s probably a godsend I really liked the worldbuilding on Haven and enjoyed reading those sections I think Haze is a lotimprobable how can you have cars, air conditioning and beam weapons without an industrial society to produce and maintain them all And have these workers entirely secret from the majority hunter gatherers

    Warning If, like me, you read fast and skim a bit, you ll never get the gist of this book It took me two rereads to really get it You really need to read it line by line and consider each sentence, but Levy writes so well and his plot and characters are so convincing, that it is worth the effort.Not published in the US I only have the book because I found it in one of the Australian campsite paperback exchanges Urgently need to find his other books
