Left me wanting more
My first Robert Sawyer novel
Very enjoyable. I could hardly put it down and managed to polish it off in two days. I assumed when I first read the summary that a story about a 16 y/o girl and a web consciousness would be simple and childish. How wrong I was, and after reading the 30 page teaser I was hooked. The story is a subtle blend of crisp science fact in an easy to digest format, with a flowing and relaxing narrative. If I'm disgruntled about anything, it's that I only discovered after finishing that this is the 2nd of a 3 part trilogy and I do prefer to read a series in order. Let's have the first one converted to ebook format and available too please Apple!
