A Sci-Fi Gem,
This review is from: Wake (Paperback)
Wake is another future classic from Robert and the start of a news series for him, in which the principle protagonist learns to see the web and learns of the consiousness stirring within.
As with Flash Forward its beautifully sculpted. The characters a triumph especially with the care and consideration of the protagonista which I really love with an overall story arc that just flows from the page into the readers imagination. Add to this an attention to detail and research that really will make you grasp without the utilisation of an info dump and I think that Robert will be a name to flag as perhaps one of the future names to judge the genre by.
Imaginative, Creative and hopefully one that will inspire readers to reach for thier dreams in much the same way Clarke or Asimov have for previous generations.

Whilst there is much to like and enjoy in this book I just wonder if he wrote a longer book and then divided it in two. How else to explain the sudden disappearance after chapter 23 of the story unfolding in China? Did it have a point, other than to illustrate the curiously topical idea that politicians can and will switch off the web if it suits them to do so? The book leaves dissident Wai-Jeng injured after a jump to escape his would-be captors. Damned annoying in the end i thought and spoilt my enjoyment overall.
