After a slow start, you'll have to grapple with a protagonist who radiates little warmth; nevertheless, with its intelligent speculations, intriguing scenario, and thoughtfully fashioned aliens, this consciousness-raiser clamps on and won't let go.

Acts of Conscience is a book of significant depth. A high tech future is portrayed in a grittily believable manner, yet not dwelled upon as such, but rather acting as a well-textured background for the character development and plot. Barton delves into the contradictions of the male psychology of the protagonist, simultaneously heroic and twisted, driven by hormones and generally good intentions, coping with the world in which he finds himself. It reads like a private autobiography somehow snatched from a very real person in a very real future. Wow.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
