It's amazing …

… how quickly and easily this book ties together diverse and complex concepts into a fast, compelling read. It's the kind of book you really enjoy reading — and then really enjoy what it's given you to think about when you're finished. Well done!

Don't waste your time

If Robert Shaw has won all of these putative awards for writing science fiction, I fear for the health of the genre. I have read one and a half of his books - illegal alien (which was passable) and the first half of WWW:Wake. Fiction, regardless of the genre, should be rendered on a deep vellum of character and plot development. Reading Mr. Shaw's material makes one feel as if the story is presented on rice paper. His work presents an artificial lack of imagination and a superfluous treatment of all main characters, although his research into the subject matter is obvious and commendable. A huge disappointment.
