Gripping and Human, well, Posthuman anyway,
This review is from: Glasshouse (Paperback)
Charles Stross is just about the best SF author writing today for ideas, originality and for sheer cracking storylines. Glasshouse looks at humanity as it may be centuries from now, with a window on war and politics that illustrates the old saying, in the story at least, that 'the past is another polity'. You are grabbed by a strong plotline and by characters that are not only finely-drawn but are redrawn by the malleability of memory and body that is brought by advanced technology. There is also a love story in there and an emotional edge that gives the climax real bite. Sell valuable possessions if that is what it takes to get a copy.
