Walking to Aldebaran

Cover of Walking to Aldebaran.

Walking to Aldebaran was my first book by Adrian Tchaikovsky, and it certainly was a good book. The story itself was a bit on the shallow side, I felt, but the writing, and the protagonist exploring weird alien catacombs, both were well done, so it was a good read. I think all things considered, the protagonist’s narration voice was the best part of the book – without it, it would’ve been generic grim scifi, but this way it was quite a bit better than that.
