Instead of focusing and developing the story the author seems to be preaching a very disturbing agenda. He tries to build a story where his agenda is right because the result is better for humanity. In his opinion child pornography and teenage sex is morally right. His justification is "everybody does it, why should we be ashamed? While teen sex is common it shouldn't be encouraged as morally right. We shouldn't be saying sending nude pictures is morally right.
Per the story:
Atheism is best
Teenage sex is morally ok
Child pornography is ok
Hackers can be used for the good
Republicans are bigots
Liberalism is the natural result of humanity
While the series does open up interesting issues we shouldn't encourage our teens to read it.
Another good installment in the series. I'm getting used to the narrator. Just different enough from the earlier books to keep my interest.
A friend of mine has been telling me to read C. J. Cherryh for years. I started one a long time ago, got a couple chapters in and dropped it (forgot which title). However, this one actually was very good book and I enjoyed it immensely. I think I will start reading some other of his works.
The writing was good and the story flowed well. Overall I enjoyed it. I just found the premise just too much of "writers convenience". By being able to pull things out of books it seemed just a bit to easy.
I'm a fan of Molly Harper, but this one isn't quite up to most of her other books. It's a nice listen, story is decent, but it's missing something.
Very quirky, but a lot of fun. Interesting concept, executed well. No I'll need to check out his other books.
OK I guess. The book jumps between too many cases, as if the author had a bunch of ideas and couldn't decide which to write about.
Haven't read the rest of the series yet but this first book makes me want to continue. Nothing overly deep, and a bit YA, but good storytelling.
I probably would have given this 3 stars but I love to bake bread. Starts off slow
, but picks up. I do like quirky characters and this had a few good ones.
Almost gave up after the first chapter, very hard to start.. Settles down a bit after that. OK, but nothing special.
Great! Fun and quirky. Good story, well written. The base concept is fun to investigate.
