3.0 out of 5 stars Too clever?, 6 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Wake (Paperback)
Wake contains two stories which dance alongside each other until their collision in the latter part of the novel. The first plot follows a web savvy blind girl who becomes the recipient of an experimental implant. The second strand follows the emergence of something within the web-space itself. Whereas Caitlin's story is full of emotion, interesting characters and creative near-future ideas, the other story is cold and calculated, rooted in maths and science and feels sterile alongside a tale rooted in humanity. This creates an imbalance, although deliberate, which is distracting. Caitlin's tale could have been a standalone tale and although it may not have contained as much science fiction, it would have engaged the reader with a more captivating story.
