i just couldn't handle an imagining of the future in which the Internet isn't available. That, and bad writing.
Yep. Seveneves was great and I'll try others.
Pure escapism with some interesting theories. Nice story line with a bit of sci Fi, pseudo religious ideas and action shoot 'em up.
This book hooked me in from the beginning and made me laugh; filled with smart-ass humor but seriously one of the top 3 books I've ever read!
pacing wayyy off. this book has great plot, but the pacing is very slow and tons of unnecessary tangents
one of the better, but still don't like it very much
no i have not
I honestly can't quite put my finger on it, by this book just didn't do much for me. I loved the cool cyberpunk world; very unique. But overall I just felt like the story was kinda boring, as if it wasn't really necessary to build this unique world to tell this story. I know a lot of people dig this novel so don't take my word for it. Just wanted to put in my $.02
a classic. a must listen.
one of the originators of cyberpunk.
the opening chapter is about as good as anything I've ever read our listened to.
I enjoyed it. yes I read it as a kid.
I would not recommend, the story does not flow well and in the end, you wonder why you hung in there for so long
The setting of the story is well done, it is to some extent a believable possible future. But to me there are two major flaws. I did not understand the motivations of the main characters - they put their lives at risk, but i could not figure out why. And there are LONG parts in the story where the "librarian" recounts ancient history to support the current events. Those parts of the narrative comes across like reading a boring history book - I thought authors are supposed to "show", not to "tell".
