This Sci-Fi action novel was a great read. It was more than a book to pass the time. I found myself playing the role of characters or "products" at various points of the book and experiencing it for myself. The political and social issues the book brings up are amazing and provide a very interesting spin on them. Most interesting was the issue of reproduction and civil unions replacing marriage. Bravo Mr. Landstrom

It seems to want to imitate William Gibson's style, but it's tiresome, overly complicated (as opposed to complex), and plays around with certain gamer metaphores ("frags"? Really? Is this a quake-novel?) like some kind of cult. I couldn't get past the second chapter, it made me tired trying to keep up with it. Sorry.
