really liked it

This is one of the first good nano-novels in sf history. It was written before nanotech was even cool, back when Drexler was someone no one had heard of and Neal Stevenson was still working on Snow Crash (which is a great book, by the way). Its also strange, scary and occasionally incomprehensible- some of the stylistic choice are a little suspect (I don't share Ms. Goonan's jazz obsession) but the book is well written, compelling and fascinating.

Its a damn good first novel, too.
