Filled with techno-dazzle and action
In this stand-alone novel about a future human society in the aftermath of a singularity event, the author shows excellent creativity in developing interesting political situations interspersed with smaller scale action, adventure, and mystery. It's not a book you'll want to put down often. My only complaint is that after reading it through one time I felt like I missed alot. For those interested in hard SF, this one has lots of techno-wonders that make you smile as you think 'what-if.' One of my favorites is a society that modifies all of its members so that their facial-recognition brain centers never forget a face. It does wonders for security - everyone knows you once they've seen you once! I liked the novel overall, but found some of the dialects spoken by the Scottish characters difficult to wade through and decipher. This is a wild ride and worth reading.Was this review helpful?
