Publisher's Summary

In a post-apocalyptic future, humanity survives within a single city run by a shadowy benefactor known only as The Family. Each week, the death lottery claims more lives and Gerry Cardle, head of the lottery, inexplicably finds himself next on the list. Something's wrong with the system. A deadly artificial intelligence has breached security. Gerry has just seven days to live. Forced off the grid, Gerry has to do the unthinkable: willingly leave the city. What he finds in the abandoned lands will shatter his perception of what it means to be human. Everything he had been told before was a lie. In a deadly world of conspiracies, Gerry has to sacrifice everything he loves in order to save it, and time is running out.

    Story
    "When you read Neuromancer but don't know what a computer is."

    First, I love post apocalyptic sci-fi. I love cyber punk. I really love post apocalyptic cyber punk. This book got my hopes up, then made me go, "What?"

    At times it felt like the technical jargon was being used as magic, without really reflecting what technology is. I understand attempting to use a visualized inner space as a narrative tool is imperfect, but at no point did I really understand how this version of the world was supposed to work. It killed the immersion.

    Which may not have been terrible. The narrative moved jarringly quickly, and the characters motivations seemed to change based on completely incomprehensible timelines and reasons.

    Basically, when the story ended, I didn't really even understand what it was about.

    Story
    "CODE MONKEY"

    SO MUCH DATA, SO MUCH POSSIBLITY
    This is fast paced and very, very tech, almost overly so. Everyday conversation is most likely going to have words related to computers, even if they are talking about going to the bathroom. I personally could not get into it, but I do see where several people will like it. I could not connect to the characters and it was too much to fast for me. Someone just about dies or does die every five minutes. It begin by reminding me of Clarke's, City of The Stars, only as if it was written by William Gibson. It will probably make a good B Movie.

    I will not continue the series.

    "Fairly predictable"

    Anyone who knows Bladerunner, The Matrix and other well known stories won't be surprised by this plot.
