Hugo Award Finalist: A near-future novel of artificial intelligence, human nature, and mass murder that "succeeds on virtually every level" (The New York Times Book Review).   In Los Angeles in 2047, advances in the science of psychology have made crime a rare occurrence. So it's utterly shocking when eight bodies are detected in an apartment, and not long afterward the perpetrator is revealed as well: noted poet Emmanuel Goldsmith. The LAPD's Mary Choy--who has had both her appearance and her police work enhanced by nanotechnology--is tasked with arresting the killer, while psychotherapy pioneer Martin Burke prepares to explore his mind. Meanwhile, Goldsmith's good friend and fellow writer reels at the news--while, far from all of them, a space probe makes a startling discovery.   This "excellent" novel about technology, identity, and the nature of consciousness is a thought-provoking stunner by the Nebula Award-winning author of the Eon series and the Forerunner Saga (Chicago Tribune).    … (mais)

A decent exploration of consciousness/awareness/self-analysis(the benefit of). Major themes: a man kills people and doesn't know why; an interstellar probe is not self-aware, but can't deal with NOT finding interstellar life; the exploration of the "country of the mind" goes wrong; an acolyte contemplates murder just to prove that he's not an emotional cypher. All of these sub-plots connect through their questioning what is conscious reality and what is sanity. There is a competent description of the various levels of the mind and how we differ from "lower" animals....and why we sometimes perform at best, hurtful acts; at worst, despicable acts. The concept of "hellcrowns" is definitely painful, but acceptable in terms of the analysis of the concept/meaning/value of punishment. Bear seems to have missed the idea that we created the concept of a "punitive god", theoretically, to control the would-be slackers who try to hide in the multitudes: "you can't hide from GOD!" ( )

Misschien een top-boek, waarom zou het anders genomineerd zijn voor een aantal prijzen, maar ik kon er niet doorheen komen.

Probeer het later nog wel eens. Of niet.

It's cool and interesting and there's a lot going on to recommend it, but it didn't come together for me. ( )

I really wanted something other than your, thow-away space opera, but didn't find it here. Such a shame, in my opinion, because the stories (there are at least three going on at the same time) all had such potential, but it didn't feel like they were fully developed. The writing was also necessarily complex. and convoluted, which made reading it a chore. Considering I read it on a plane and was essentially a captive audience, and still couldn't get into the story speaks volumes. I couldn't even remember the title of the book and had to search for it online to post this review. ( )

Nope. Can't do it. Sort of feels like it was written in another language, poorly translated into English, and then printed as is. I don't enjoy reading books that give me a headache.
I loved Eon, Eternity, and a few of his others, but this series isn't happening for me (I also accidentally read Slant before this not knowing it was the 4th in this set). ( )
