    1. The first Tanith Lee book I ever read was Dark Dance It was awesome I ve read a few of Lee s work since then, but none have given me the same delicious, nail biting experience that one did.Day by Night comes really close, though It s about two sides of a planet which never rotates So, like our moon, one side is always light and one is always dark Each side has adapted in different ways, but they are mirrors of each other In both cities there are super rich people who live in mansions, waited on [...]

    2. i ve just finished reading day by night and i think i might need some time to digest before i post a review here anyway, for now let me say that i enjoyed it and that it is a great example of how brilliant Lee is when she turns to sci fi and, oh, i absolutely loved the last chapter8 Oct 2011 So here is a little addition for the review the thing is, that even though Day by night is not Lee s best, and it is not something that everybody could easily enjoy, it is surely bold and imagivative, and a [...]

    3. I wanted to like this so much than I actually did as it was I m glad I read it, but I don t think I ll be holding on to my copy The book definitely had its good points her world is interesting, and there was some very evocative descriptive prose always one of Lee s strengths , and the day side night side structure of the world being paralleled in the actual structure of the story was quite clever But it moved a little slowly for my tastes I don t mind leisurely books but I like the lingering to [...]

    4. This just wasn t one of Tanith Lee s best Her usual lush descriptions simply went on too long and were far too involved The story plodded up until the end, where there was a rather satisfactory ending.

    5. Not her best, but I ve missed train stops on purpose just to keep reading Reading this you really do need to know how it turns out.Also A planet that does not spin has been found to actually exist Food for thought Also won t discourage those who might be put off by an unrealistic world.Lee really has a way of grounding her societies Perhaps than her other works, I felt like this place could exist Yes, even or especially including the fantastic ending.

    6. My experience with Tanith Lee s novels is rather hit and miss, and I m afraid this one falls into the latter category Only my love of some of her other works kept me reading until the end to be ultimately disappointed This is actually two stories in one the vapid Vitra is a Fabulast who lives on the dark side of the planet, and she is writing a story about the spoiled Vel Thaidis who lives on the light side of the planet Or is it a story After a crime is committed in each world, the stories stra [...]

    7. I liked this story of a future civilisation or two in decline, societal breakdown and poetic justice This is old school sci fi so may seem rather plodding to readers of modern works, but the world building is fantastic and evocative.

    8. One story of 2 linked adventures occurring on opposite ends of a planet A very fun read full of all kinds of poetic polarization.
