Re: The second book has already set up the technological details, and so is more focused. Danae al'Thor Send a noteboard - 11/04/2011 03:11:19 PM
It's definitely very hard SF - which I enjoy - so I didn't find that to be a detractor. I don't even recall there being that much technical detail, it seemed like the plot was focused on the explosion and mystery on the miners' planet, and Catherine Li's growing suspicion of the government deliberately erasing her memory and her dealing with traumatic events of her past (and coming to terms with her own humanity, and that of the AI). I'd really liked this book.

I think I liked the sequel, Spin Control, even better, because it was more focused and personal. And - there is a 3rd book coming out sometime on the horizon.


The preview excerpt for Ghost Spin is very alarming. I'm fond of Cohen!

Also, some of it didn't make sense. - 12/04/2011 05:34:57 PM 1512 Views
I think that's what they call dystopia - 12/04/2011 06:07:19 PM 1478 Views
No, that's not what dystopia is. - 21/04/2011 04:30:43 AM 1532 Views
