My husband and I are reading this trilogy together and each night we share our take on that day's reading. There's so much to think about and explore!! Amazing so far can't wait to read the third!! Wonderful reading...simply a must
Yes I believe I would after some time. Often I get new messages from a book the second time I read it. I usually give it several months before I read a good book again.
Good character development, WWhen explenations are given, they sound plausible. The author knows his subject, his suroundings - location, doesn't talk down to the reader.
Of course I like the harilon but, the whole family seem real. The Japanese scientist also has an interesting is interesting.
Many moments, it's hard to find just one.
Ok, I have read many books by Robert J. Sawyer, some on the CNIB Library and some others on Audible. I knew that he was a great author. I had been putting off the WWW series because I thought it was likely just a blind story book. I have no problem reading books about people that are blind but, I sometimes find myself rejecting books that others think "would be good for me". I finally decided to give the first book a try, I'm glad I did.
My only question is, after the ending in the second book "Watch", how can "Wonder" top that?
I love it! Even after almost seven years after reading the first book, the moment I started this audio book, I remembered the wonder and curiosity that filled my mind all those years ago. I will track down a hardcover copy of this book, so that I will always have it. I would recommend this series to anyone and everyone!
I'm off to listen to the last book! Thank you Robert J. Sawyer for a fantastic series!
I was especially drawn in by the performance. a good story, but there were language issues I was very upset about. I almost stopped listening because of this. other than that the book was very interesting and I had to finish it and see what happened.
Robert J story or is becoming one of my favorite authors in science fiction. The concept of an emerging artificial super intelligence were handled thoughtfully. Lots of details which was fun to set your mind thinking about possibilities. For some reason I have not been a fan of his endings and the last chapter as with other of his books gets a bit preachy. However it wasn't enough to diminish the enjoyment of the entirety of the book.
Robert's character are very convincing, and it is easy to empathise with them. During the reading process, and afterwards, you can't help thinking if such a thing was really possible.
An easy, fun read but also thought provoking in endless ways.
This is my second time listening to all these books. And although the ending to the trilogy is amazing and well executed this book is my favorite. "Into the future... Together"
Computational cognition, ethics, transhumanism, etc.
You're not prepared for the 2020's unless you're reading relevant scifi. RJS's www trilogy should be mandatory for all youngsters, but it's critical for 80s kids & older. We laughed at our parents, but the exponential returns of technology (partly due moores law) guarantee we will be surpassed even further. Be sure to also see childhoods end.
