Superb read

by Cornbeltreader on Jul 31, 2008

There is ample reason that Richard Powers is so highly respected as a contemporary writer of fiction. This book is carefully crafted around two seemingly disparate story lines that together open up the nature of imagination and reality, human interaction, and what we can (and cannot) control in our lives. The book shows us the technological side of virtual reality and how humans relate to it. And it takes deep into the desperate world of the solitary political hostage -- at once deeply disturbing and exhilarating. I could not put this book down after the first few pages.
