4.0 out of 5 stars The Richest of Worlds...
In Context, John Meaney describes in terrific detail a futuristic world of classes and complex societies, with the finest in SF techo wizardry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing follow up, 5 Jun. 2003
When I learned that John Meaney was writing a sequel to Paradox I was pleased, unfortunately Context was a disappointment.
Context shares the worst features of the previous book with few of the best features. The main character, Tom Corcorigan, appears to move from situation to situation in an extremely disjointed fashion, with little justification ever given for why. Due to this there was little sense of the character ever developing or being anything other than a vehicle for plot events. Given the excellent sense of the character growing and developing in the first half of the previous book this was a sincere disapointment.
There are good aspects to Context, mainly the end sequences where issues are resolved. However I cannot really recommend this book unless you are a serious fan of his writing style and the Nulapeiron world
