I saw it at the store as a hardcover and couldn't download it due to the fact that I would have to leave it on a desk to read it. Imagine my surprise when I found the Kindle edition at a steep discount. I clicked download in an instant. This book is not fast-paced.
This is more like an older Stephen King tome mixed with Michael Crichton. The story is very well-researched, and the characters are large in volume. It took a little bit to get going, but I'm so glad that I started this. If you're an average reader like me, it will take a while to get through this suspenseful book, but it is worth it in my opinion as the story is so layered.
A space elevator has been built to get to the moon, and a resort is being opened there. Lots of prominent people are showing up to this state of the art place, but of course, disaster strikes. If you like suspenseful sci-fi, definitely give this one a shot. The book was one of the longer ones I've read, with very little of the extra length of any real use to the overall story line. Some of the sub-stories would have made ok reading on their own but each line would be abandoned at points to pick up another and you'd lose the thread, over and over again.
On a positive note, Schatzing's writing is technically well done otherwise it might have gotten only one star. Will probably not check out this writer again. Complicated plot, interesting characters and an overwhelming flood of detail. A space elevator, a hotel on the moon, sinister forces at play. Very near future, ! A bit optimistic but by say Very detailed plausible scenarios. Politics, technology, spy agencies, nuclear fusion, web technologies.
And a bunch of driven, distressed individuals pushed to their limits. The author has writing skill, I kept reading his story until the books end. Usually I tear thru a book, this one I had to read in chunks and then put down for awhile.
Especially when I got to the political rants where Bush ruined the planet, while The One setup up it's recovery. There's neither escape from the real world in this book, nor the ability to escape from the authors opinion. That almost made me stop reading completely right there. And now after getting to the end I wish I had. The author took almost sadistic pleasure in developing characters only to ruthlessly kill them off.
All this to set up who gets to live at the end. I kept hoping the end would have some redeeming value to make the long tortuous journey worth it. But no. Rich people are inherently evil, and big oil companies are raping and running the planet.
If you have any conservative values, let this book pass you by. Amazingly detailed knowledge of the future of the cyber community, but it does involve a lot of politics and history in this very intricate piece of work. If you are not into that you may not like this book but I love it!
Good work Frank! Frank Schatzing writes yet another well researched and founded novel. The reader gets the feeling that he binge watches a well written 2 season series with fast changing scenes. The plot on the earth, especially in Shanghai is faster paced and more suspenseful than the one developing on the moon. At some point during my read through the moon plot I found myself not caring who dies or who survives, which is a problem. However, I would highly recommend this book for those readers who are interested in politics meets science fiction meets corporate greed, and so on.
The author's "The Swarm" was hard to top, but this book comes close. This was a very good story but is a big read. It just keeps going. Great suspense and a credible story-line. One person found this helpful. Fan ot the author! Infinity Engine. The Windup Girl. Paolo Bacigalupi.
