The last book by Brian W. Aldiss I read was Evil Earths back in 2006. This book is about the colonization of Mars and the deterioration of Earth.
The book had a dated feel. I remember enjoying Aldiss and I really didn't care for this book. The book felt more like a philosophic treatise than a novel. I didn't find in-depth character development and I never found myself really becoming involved with the characters or the story.
I really didn't feel this was up to what I would expect from the author.
