[Chris Moriarty] Spin Control [words Book] TXT

Chris Moriarty ´ 6 free read

W literally hooked up with an AI who has lived many lifetimes and shunted through many bodies But while they have their own conflicting loyalties to contend with together they’re just one player in a mysterious high stakes game. I swithered between giving this three and four stars The uality of the writing is very good indeed and a huge amount of research and thought has obviously gone into things like terraforming the future of the Israel Palestine conflict clone society Emergent AIs and ants But overall it didn t hugely hang together very well for me long sections of exposition on the various topics just made it feel a bit disjointed and slow The plot was often lost under layers of things Chris Moriarty obviously finds interesting the excellent character of Catherine Li doesn t do much but be grumpy and the conclusion felt a bit rushed and anti climactic I think Moriarty would have done better to cut some of the themes he was exploring or separated them into other booksStill going to pick up the third one though

G it They’re selling it–and Arkady–to the highest bidder As the auction heats up the Artificial Life Emancipation Front sends in Major Catherine Li Drummed out of the Peacekeepers for executing Syndicate prisoners Li has no. I really was excited to read this book and it had the potential to be really great but fell flatThe author decided to focus on making a very bland boring commentary on the Arab Israeli conflict instead of focusing on any of several very interesting sci fi elements of his world that could have perhaps stood with the great social commentary sci fi of the 60s and 70s if done wellAliens with a virus that can make the infertile population of Earth fertile again A society of clones coming into their indivuality Old school spacers vs Earth conflicts All glossed over to make an extremely trite Can t we all just get along statement on the Arab Israeli conflictIt is a decent spy story at heart but the missed potential probably makes me grade it harder than it deserves

    I would never have thought that a story could be spun out of a wild mix of the Arab Israeli conflict ants AIs clones water fertility and space

    You can tell a book is ambitious when it takes on the Israeli Palestinian conflict and this book is at least as smart as it is ambitious The Israeli Palestinian conflict is only one of the threads in the story but I think it is done justice In the future the Strip is irradiated and the battles are fought on both sides by soldiers piloted by

    With some reservations I enjoyed the first book “Spin State” in Chris Moriarty’s “Spin” series But I’m not happy at all with her 2006 seuel Spin Book 2 Spin Control” I’ve got three major problems The first can be boiled down to the same major issue I had with the first book she sets up a society and its technologi

    I liked this book without really understanding what was going on Like most books in the cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction the concepts usually lose me I guess I just don’t have the mind for them It’s kind of like being a luddite while working in the computer industry which I am and in which I do Still I really liked reading this boo

    35 StarsLike the first this one had slick smooth writing with a plethora of great futurism world building with some interesting characters that ended up way too convoluted for it's own goodReduce the character count trim the book by about 200
