Book Review: Defending Elysium by Brandon Sanderson

Four Stars out of Five

“I might have been wrong … about everything.”

A 2008 science fiction novella. It opens like many SF stories, with the point of view character arriving at a remote space site on a mission. Before he can attend to business, events propel him in another direction.

Too bad the movie Elysium released after this tale. The similar names, referring to where dead heroes go in Virgil’s Aeneid, will confuse potential readers. This tale has nothing to do with the movie.

Cover Art Quibble: The events depicted have nothing to do with the story.

“Perhaps we can salvage something from paradise.”

  1. I do like the title. Interesting plot but I probably won’t read. A matter of time, having enough of it. Maybe I need to build a time machine, one that expands each day. Maybe you’ll write that book?
