Mad Logan's resident matrix cyber babble
on 24 March 2014
Gerry lives a high tech, cyber-connected life as a programmer in the comfort of a huge dome run by "the family". He wakes up one morning to find he has only 7 days of life left, a victim of the death lottery he himself administrates. Kismet I'd have thought but he is helped by two odd hackers and becomes a fugitive. Gerry is forced to leave the comfort and security of the dome for the badlands created by the "cataclysm" and finds himself joining the hackers in hunting a rogue AI.
I enjoy a bit of dystopian cyber-nonsense but I couldn't get on with Colin Barne's terrible writing style, a confused rush of gore, bad dialogue and two dimensional characters. Much of this is blatantly culled from well known movies and books. One to miss.
