About this deal

R. Martin had a series of books set in a universe that’s not super dissimilar from "Mickey 7," long before " A Song of Ice and Fire," of course. When Mickey7 falls into a deep hole, no one bothers to rescue him because that is pretty much his job description. The book is being adapted into a film directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Robert Pattinson as Mickey, Steven Yeun, Toni Collette, Naomi Ackie, and Mark Ruffalo.

If Kurt Vonnegut and Michael Crichton had ever started a band, Mickey7 would have been their first album. It does what so many other current works of light sci-fi try to do: everyman fish-out-of-water heads into danger and suspense and drama occur. It’s an odd book in that it’s not super heavy on action, and it doesn’t feel like a whole lot happens, but I enjoyed it.All that’s added is some bland backstory of Mickey Barnes’s earlier lives, a not-very-compelling description of the interactions between Mickeys 7 and 8, and a clever plan by Mickey7 to solve some key problems on Niflheim, including his own.

He does however add enough worldbuilding to really add valued depth, and we experience some harrowing scenes of past Mickey’s, especially the unfortunate Mickey2.Mickey7's luck is that he survives and makes his way back to the colony, somehow thinking they won't have reconstituted Mickey8.
