    Truly visionary projection of mind into the future, and the engrossing possibilities, way before Neo and Trinity. In a philosophical bent, we enter Plato's cave, and we get to struggle with the very real life puzzle of "what is real?" True, the story is a tad dated, but not too much, this isn't a one-trick pony kind of deal, and Simulacron-3 is a compelling listen. It is easy to imagine, while reading, what we would do with our own stumbling upon the evidence of this reality, and in truth, we already have stumbled upon such a concept (scientists are increasingly fessing up to the potential of a vast world hologram, or let's say it, the matrix). It is difficult to find good novels dealing with this question in any serious way, and Galouye tackles the conundrum powerfully. Art et Amour Toujours
