2.0 out of 5 stars More magic than sci-fi, 25 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bohr Maker (The Nanotech Succession Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
After reading and enjoying 'Red: First Light' I thought I'd come back and try some of Nagata's earlier work. I was sorely disappointed.

Nano-tech and the conflict arrising from it's use and development is potentially a fertile ground for sci-fi but the author employs it in an arbitrary and shalloow fashion, making it do whatever she wants for the story whilst leaving everything else unexplored. The most glaring example of this is that characters are seemingly able to fully copy their personalities around at will and even house other personalities within their brain. This is utilised wherever required in the plot without and consideration for the wider implications of such a technology. Similar glaring holes in the litter the book.

Combined with the largely unlikeable and uninteresting characters this is one of those rare books that I didn't even finish.
