First Review of Reality 36By
While Robopocalypse is this year’s hottest robot release… Reality 36 is a superior novel in almost every way.
[The application of technology] just makes sense… This reality (so far as science fiction goes) is what makes the book so compelling. It’s an actual glimpse into the future as much as it’s a mystery yarn and an action thriller. Isn’t that what Science Fiction is all about?
He won’t get any arguments from us…
When bullets aren’t flying I felt like I was having a discussion with the author about the implications the Singularity will have on humanity. And that’s cool.
As I was reading the novel I was comparing it favorably to another debut from earlier this year – Hannu Rajaniemi’s The Quantum Thief. They really aren’t similar in any way other than they read with a similar pace and absence of information dumping (a pet peeve of mine).
Guy Haley has really produced a first rate robot novel. Angry Robot Books keeps churning out great additions in speculative fiction.
