Every once in awhile I come across a book that feels like it was written specifically with me in mind. It's flattering, despite the fact it obviously wasn't literally written specifically with me in mind. It's nice to know there's an author out there who was thinking "there are people out there who will want to read just this very thing" and one of those people turns out to be me. It's like getting a gentle ego massage from a total stranger. I greatly appreciate it.
False Hearts is a sci-fi thriller set in an eerily plausible future San Francisco (where I was born and raised), and if it were supper, the entrée would be a David Cronenberg casserole, with a small side of Strange Days, garnished with a smidge of Blade Runner. Despite its derivations, it still manages to be a very spicy and unique dish, never ordinary or run-of-the-mill. There are a few small plot contrivances that are hand-waved past, and I was a little disappointed with how one of the important relationships in the story developed, but otherwise this was a very delicious meal indeed.
