I liked it, wasn't overwhelmed, but liked it. It feels really dated. Written in 1994, and of the near future, it predicts a world where 39" HD TVs are luxury items, and sophisticated wrist sensors that send all kinds of data about the wearer not only do not have a GPS chip, but cannot be used to track the location of the wearer, despite sending continuous data.

I also found the pace to be very uneven. It seems rushed at times, and some threads and character are left very undeveloped. However, it is a good read, and has some compelling ideas.

Clay Nichols About half way through this one, but had already written this same review in my head -- almost verbatim. I've debated at times whether to finish it. Worth slogging through the second half or cut my losses?

Bryan I enjoyed it enough to encourage you to finish without talking about what I didn't care for that would be spoilers. I want Eleanor Richmond to be real, btw.
