Set on a distant planet, far in the future, West of January tells the story of a world in which time moves very slowly. Because it takes a lifetime for each region of the planet to experience dawn, midday and dusk, the planet's population does not remember the catastrophes that occur as the sun moves across the sky-entire civilizations have been scorched into oblivion. The only people who remember the dangers of the past are the planet's "angels"-a people who have tried to preserve past technologies to save the planet. This action-filled story of a very strange planet showcases Duncan's remarkable ability to create unique worlds.

This is a pretty good book. Duncan is a very imaginative writer when he creates worlds and civilization. The problem with this author is that he doesn't know when to shut up. The story goes on far too long. He tortures the main character with one mishap after another and then ties everything up in the last 10 pages.

This is a book I would get a first time Sci-Fi reader to read. If they like it then it opens lots of other books to be read. If no then they usally have a general area that they will stay with.

Great sci-fi read, that isn't just about warring starships. Was a bit depressing, but had great action and momentum. Was a great concept -- very unique. Wonderful stand alone book.
