Marrow by Robert Reed
Marrow is the one recent (current decade) science fiction book I would recommend to new readers of science fiction. I read Marrow in 2001 and again in 2005.
I can imagine how confusing it must be for sf-n00bs when they have to make choices about what to read from a variety of superb authors, none of which they've read before.
If you want a kickstart, a rollercoaster ride into the amazing and totally awesome world of science fiction, read Marrow by Robert Reed.
This highly intelligent novel will introduce you to a variety of current topics and concepts in science fiction.
Blow your mind wide open by the scope and magnitude of the concepts, ideas, and incredible wit and visions from Robert Reed in Marrow.
Once you have read Marrow you will be left with a yearning for more.
Highly recommended and with highest honours, this is a rare book.
From the backflap of the book:
The ship is home to a thousand alien races and a near-immortal crew who have no knowledge of its origins or purpose. At its core lies a secret as ancient as the universe.
It is about to be unleashed.
