If you have read TUC, please spare a few moments to rate the book and review it on Amazon and/or Goodreads( even if the review is just a couple of words)  . It really helps Bakker perhaps more than he himself might realize.And reviews convince people to buy these books, more sales makes  TSTSNBN more possible.Most of the reviews for Bakker's books currently are: "The language is too complicated! I stopped at the first chapter. " or " I read the two prologues and nothing happened in them " or " TUC sucks because it isn't out. Shitty book, 1 star for it " The Zaudunyanni presence doesn't exist in Amazon and Goodreads' reviews. And that hurt Bakker's sales.

+10000000 to this.  Stars matter a ton in the early going.  So if you have a spare minute, please head over to Amazon/Goodreads and let your voice be heard!

Also, google play books.
Anyhow, I do understand why ha has "not-that-many" readers, as his books require some IQ, ability fo focus and to think :) Also, som knowledge in the fields of philosophy and cognitive science helps :D

I put a small review in spanish on Goodreads and on Amazon too.
I am making proselytism among my friends IRL and in FB - main problem, they do not usually read in english and we have only a spanish edition of TPN.

God there are so many 1 star reviews on Amazon. Hope this won't affect the sales too much...
It's funny, it reminds me of Alien Covenant. It had a similar ending (in tone), and many people absolutely hated it, while I of course loved it.

It won't affect, if we responded with our own 5 star reviews.

I've put in a small review at amazon.co.uk
Mystery denotes darkness

I'm really, really bad at writing reviews so I typically end up just rating the books.  The only novel I wrote a "review" for was <i>The Darkness that Comes Before</i> and it was more like something you would use as a blurb on the book and not really a review.

"This is my top favourite series ever." is a good review :) .
