4.0 out of 5 stars Hard sci-fi goes soft at the edges, 8 April 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spin State (Mass Market Paperback)
Spin state has a lot of good ideas - the focus of the book is the interaction between the main character, a genetically engineered clone, and an AI. This is well done and both are strangely human and well developed.
The quantum theory underpinning the book is less well described, and although the author has obviously read a lot of books, it is clear he does not come from a physics background. Contrast the high concept stuff here with that of Alastair Reynolds, for instance.
However, this is a readable, enjoyable book, and if the characters continue to grow it will be a worthy series to follow.
