Pretty damn good! Not sure what I was expecting for the low-low price, but was more than pleasantly surprised. Okay the plot was sort of - A, followed by B, followed by C, with few twists and turns. Yet there was certainly enough tension, to make it exiting. It's a young author's work and maybe he did not allow enough rumination about the protagonists feelings and motivations. But what the hell, that will surely come, and even if it doesn't, and he carries on in this vein, he has enough imagination to make very enjoyable stories.
Google glass meets 1984 Really enjoyed reading this series of books. It highlighted what could go wrong very quickly when new technologies become so indispensable that they become a must have. All supposedly being done for our benefit. The characters in the story are great and the plot is believable and too real. I hope this stays as fiction and doesn't materialize. It could so easily happen.
Near-Future Sci-Fi Technothriller Near-Future Sci-Fi Technothriller is an accurate description of this good long read. Thought provoking, well written with memorable characters showing what could happen when augmented reality is experienced by an entire population. Social networking exploited to the extreme and privacy is no more. A real page turner with plenty of pages.
Possible Future I really enjoyed this story I found the concept and possible future applications of the seed fascinating and frightening at the same time. I can see some of these ideas coming true especially with the coming of a new far right where strength and might trump individually and humanity
Great set of books Great set of books, I found it slow to start but once the scene was set and I got further into the books I couldn’t put it down. It’s scary how there are similarities to the real world and how we might go. Would recommend this to read
Super cyber seed story Like most of his books that I've read, this was absorbing and refreshingly different. No spoilers from me, just get this book and see what the future could possibly be - if we're not careful.
how true to life now this is what is happening in our world now. gripping storyline that draws you to our way of living at present.
Cyber Seed Quadrilogy (Kindle Edition) Superb Sci-Fi and not beyond the realms of a future possibility. Try Terradox Quadrilogy as well. Brilliant. This guy has a fantastic imagination. many thanks for many hours of escapism.
Brilliant Brilliant book
Frighteningly good read Well written and frighteningly thought provoking vision of the future. Love some of the side stories that I would never have even considered but which only add to the Orwellian storyline.
