June Books 25) The Lives of Tao, by Wesley Chu

The last of the novels in the Hugo voter packet, included for the John W. Campbell award. I’m sorry to say that I wasn’t all that impressed. Apparently every historical achievement of humanity was really done with the help of alien psychic symbiotes, which I find a rather depressing concept. There is a visit to Dublin with absolutely no credible local coloration. The writing was competent enough, but I have problems with the basic concept and the detail.
