A WORK OF FICTION...THAT SHOWS US REALITY, 31 July 2005
I realize that this book is being sold as science fiction, but you only have to look around you to see that it gives a clear picture of our current reality. In the UK these days, we have willingly given away most of our rights and all of our privacy. This book has swords and battles and exciting scenes, but it also gives a larger vision about who we are and where we are going. Doing a little research on the Internet showed me that many of the technological aspects Hawks writes about are quite real. As far as his description of London, he is also accurate about where to buy unregistered phone chips, etc. Forget about vampires and serial killers. This book is about something that really is frightening.
