Blue Remembered Earth by Alastair Reynolds

Blue Remembered Earth (Poseidon's Children, #1) - Alastair Reynolds, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

Poseidon’s Children #1


I wasn’t sure what to make of this book based on the description, but it was one that I’d been meaning to read, I needed a new book to listen to, and the narrator is the same guy who reads the Peter Grant books (which apparently upset some of Alastair Reynolds’s regular audiobook listeners).  The book basically turns into a treasure hunt that takes Geoffrey Akinya across the solar system after he’s asked to look into a safe deposit box after his grandmother dies.  I thought it was fun.


Plus murderous elephants, Maaaaars, and alien “artefacts” on another planet.
