4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, entertaining and fun. Don't miss it. 11 April 2000
Format:Paperback
I can't believe that no-one's reviewed this yet!
Jon Courtenay Grimwood has written a wee cracker of a book that just serves to illustrate that UK SF is not hidebound by the straightjacket of past success.
Characters that live a life that's within an up to the minute, fast paced technothriller and who grab you by the balls and wont let go.
If I have any reservations... the writing is maybe not as polished as some of his counterparts. This is a first novel though. Buy it and the subsequent books if you like your fiction to be entertaining and fun.
Who does he compare too? Well, I'd suggest Gibson, Sterling and Stephenson, but closer to Stephenson's crackin' Snow Crash than the others.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book on which the author learnt his trade 11 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the introduction to this edition of the book the author admits that this is the book on which he learnt his craft and it shows. I have read several other books by the same author and all are far more polished than this, thats not to say it doesn't have it's moments but overall it's a confusing William Gibson knock-off. Despite some very clever ideas the book borrows far to much from the likes of Count Zero etc. We share so many characters point of view it's difficult to remember who is who, we ride along with one character for 40 or so pages then are dumped off to another character for a chapter then back to a previous character but in a different time period. All very confusing which is a shame as it is in places very entertaining if a little over violent, I lost count of how many times a character "voided their bowels" or a variation of it. The conclusion is also very confusing and way to much like the end of Neuromancer for my liking.

Be warned if you go for the Kindle edition it has a number of irritating typos although I was willing to over look this as the author seems to have made the effort to get this book published in the format so fans of his later work can go back to where he started and as the book is only priced at 1.49 I can forgive it a few typos.

Overall although I like the writing style I cant recommend this book I nearly gave up on it halfway through and dont feel like I would have missed anything if I had. This author has far better work than this available.
