Absorbing Intriguing Detailed
Someone else compared this to Outlander, which is why I chose it in the first place. This is well done but lacks the humor and depth of character of that book/series.
I liked learning things about the era that I was previously unaware of - just how every day life was lived plus the historical context of things I thought had occured much later in time.
I wish that authors did not feel the need to reach for ever more shocking murders/violence/torture. One could easily skip those scenes and enjoy the book as much.
I have recommened this book to only a select few. The awfulness is hard to take.
The historical context.
Matthew Corbit of course. He has the most interesting backgroundd and demeanor.
There are a lot of anachronisms that are distracting to the story.
Yes - I liked the pacing and characters
The story is interesting because of its futuristic setting and the way it moves in and out of reality and the game (metaverse).
Before I bought this book I read a review that said that people will either love or hate this book. Not quite true for me, but I can see how some would find it confusing or not be able to relate to the on-line life.
This falls in with Reamde and Ready Player One - those are superior books, but I enjoyed this one.
Daniel Silva was recommended to me by a friend. I am hoping that the later books are better. This one just never grabbed me.
Yes and this one was just as good.
