    Set a few decades from now, Rainbows End is an epic adventure that encapsulates in a single extended family the challenges of the technological advances of the first quarter of the 21st century. The information revolution of the past 30 years blossoms into a web of conspiracies that could destroy Western civilization. At the center of the action is Robert Gu, a former Alzheimer's victim who has regained his mental and physical health through radical new therapies, and his family.

    Overall

    One of my favorite things about Audible, are the surprises you find if willing to take a chance on mixed reviews.

    This has been the best treat so far. My thanks to the readers who didn’t get it.

    Having never even heard of Vinge, I was totally captivated by his near future extension of present day trends, and, the new tech he invents.

    Story line and world view worked well together, no excessive fluff explaining concepts, but enough back story to keep everything together.

    This is now one of my top 5 books, I just hope this glowing review doesn’t spoil it for a future treasure hunter.
