By far the most impressive thing about this book for me was Ms. Sullivan's use of language. I found myself amazed on nearly every page by the freshness of her descriptions. Describing a sunset as being the color of ripe cantaloupe. Ah, to be able to write like that!
In short, this is a fun, fun book that is also quite thought provoking and full of genuine literary merit. Buy this one!
Like some other recent SF writers she sets up characters who look like cyberpunk stereotypes (karate-kicking street kid with a heart of gold etc.), but who in fact turn out to vulnerable, messed-up and, well, human.
But it's missing something that I can't quite work out... perhaps a particular spark of originality that would have made it something really special.
"Someone.." is a frightening and literate vision of what technology and misplaced power could hold in the very near future
