Just a brilliant story. I couldn't put it down and immediately looked to see if the author had written more in the Patricia Beenan series. I wish he would

Excellent! 1 Feb. 2000
By Mike Giroux - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A fine book by the author of _Jumper_, _Wildside_, and _Helm_.
This is an interesting adventure set in a near-future world where an Antarctic ice shelf collapse has flooded the world's low-lying regions and created a massive refugee problem, making the INS the second-largest branch of the armed forces.
Like flying in _Wildside_ or aikido in _Helm_, there's a "central skill" to the book, and this time it's diving and submersibles. It's interesting material, and it's well integrated into the story.
Definitely recommended, as are his other books.

A Thrilling, Engrossing Read 24 Mar. 2000
By Craig Milo Rogers - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Wow! Steven Gould has written another thrilling novel! Set in a near future of flooded continents and floating cities, once the story starts to run it just does not stop. Social consciousness, ecology, romance, and an abiding love for the Bard are cleverly woven together with personal submarines, fast ships, and flying bullets. The characters are well thought-out, both in their descriptions and their interactions.
As in Mr. Gould's previous novels, there's a unifying theme; in this case, underwater travel. And if the protagonists aren't diving in a submarine or swimming their way to and from danger, they're zipping back and forth in boats on the surface. Also as in *Jumper* and *Wildside*, a large government agency, in this case the INS, figures prominently in the plot. The scary thing is, I find this part of the scenario an all too plausible extrapolation of present-day events.
Foodies, beware: there's a restaurant in this book that ought to be real, and I hope someday I find myself in it.
Now that I've read this book, I'll just have to keep on rereading it, and *Jumper*, and *Wildside*... until the next Steven Gould novel comes out!

Another great story from Steven Gould 8 Jun. 2000
By Pat Nagle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
BLIND WAVES is another wonderful read from the author of JUMPER. The technical problems and solutions are fascinating, and the relationship between the two main characters develops beautifully. With references to Shakespeare sprinkled throughout, this is a smart, sophisticated story, yet it doesn't exclude any reader. Even if you hate Shakespeare, you'll still love this book. Really a great read.

Gould rocks 8 April 2001
By Daniel H. Bigelow - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Gould's first two books, Jumper and Wildside, are ovelooked classics of SF. His third, Helm, which was his first attempt at world-building (as opposed to introducing a single SF element in our world), was not so good. I worried that Gould was losing it, but he has returned to form with Blind Waves.
Blind Waves is a rollicking thriller with fun characters, a twistier plot than expected, and a fully realized and extremely well utilized setting among the ruins of a U.S. coastline flooded by melting Antarcic ice. Gould's muscular prose propels his heroes through a series of imaginative and dangerous predicaments. And Gould's heroes, although perhaps not the most realistic out there, are the kind of people I like and care about, not grim jerks. I always like an adventure better if it's about people I'd like to hang out with, and Gould's heroes Patricia and Thomas fit the bill.
Gould exceeds his own high standards here on many levels, from his meticulously researched maritime environment to his plot, which is far less simple than it seems. And he manages this without sacrificing his strengths, which are his clear writing style and compelling characters. In Blind Waves, Gould succeeded in the world-building he failed at in Helm. He has added a powerful new skill to his already burgeoning repertoire -- there's nowhere for the man to go but up. I eagerly await his next work.

If You like Gould ... 20 Oct. 2000
By J. D. Rome - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a good read, like most of S. Gould's books (excluding that atrocious collaberation "greenwar" or whatever). This is not his best, that title goes to "Jumper" or "Wild Side", but it is better than the average book. With likeable characters and an interesting story it is over before you even know.
Gould's prose is like going down a slide; interesting at first, then exhilerating the closer you get to the end so you can't wait to start again.
