If you like your Sci-Fi set in a fascinating world, full of complex characters and big ideas, then you should try this out! I was glad I did. It reminds me of a lot of the great old school sci-fi like Asimov and Heinlein. The story unfolds through several different characters, but never gets confusing. Though Adam is by far my favorite character (his stuff is in first person) all the characters are compelling. The theme here seems to be that the human brain is the next frontier of scientific exploration, with everything from memory uploads to transplanted identities. I was interested in how the clones are seen as just a vehicle to grow and develop these technologies. The idea of clones suffering from a pathological hatred of one another is interesting too, and I'll be interested to see where that develops. The L-42869 plot line seems to be about how a technology becomes human, so I'll be interested to see how it goes.
Looking forward to the next installment!
