Monumental Ski Jump, Mar 26, 2009
by Toolsmith

"Once this story gets rolling, there's no stopping it. Slightly dated by the passage of 15 years, it's still rich in ideas, his reality a reasonable extension of our own. After reading, I bought a copy especially for the explorations into the origins of religion which are woven into the plot--but I'll enjoy re-reading it for the richness of the entire story."

If you like cyberpunk, one of the best EVER, Feb 7, 2008
by wrtmania

"You simply must like an author who names his hero 'Hiro'...that's 'Hiro Protagonist' to be precise, just in case you were wondering who to pull for. The premise, the virtual world, the action, the Mafia as a major corporation and the use of Reason are all reasons you simply must read this book. It's a great story with compelling characters and lots of style. I don't rate every book I read 5 stars, not even everything I've read by NS, BUT this one I do."

"This book is the beginning and the send for the future of Virtual Worlds. This is where the inspiration comes from.
You simply MUST read this book. And then you'll be back. I have personally purchased this book at least 6 times as I've lost/loaned copies over the years."

Science Thriller, Aug 23, 2007
by only

"This book was a quick read and the author was definitely not a material scientist. Glass and ceramic material bladess have several interesting properties but a blade thickness of one molecule is not likely and if the glass was a composite or plastic or carbon impregnated it would not shatter like old fashioned window glass or a water glass. the glass would also be annealed and should be more visco elastic than portrayed. The age difference between the two characters with fathers from world war II would make them both at least 40 and not fit the roles given them. The portrayal of sailing vessels and their characteristics was not very realistic. Large displacement vessels have some unique properties and the ships were talked about as if they were no more than super sized container haulers. Webb Institute could have helped to make it more realistic.
The story is a fun and quick read. The geography was very accurate. Not a treasure for the science nerds or the Daniel Waterhouses."
