Meet Franklin Tempo, a man who lives in a world where organics and technology are interconnected.
In this world people are entertained by remotely connecting to actors. In this world, veteran soldiers take control of scared recruits.
This is Franklin's chronicle. In this book Franklin describes his world as he uncovers the forgotten origin and then the cataclysmic end of the WetWeb. More
The characters in WetWeb are struggling to understand the status of humanity in a strange world where biology and technology are intricately and unavoidably interconnected.
Quote from Al McKnight: “If I lost a finger, a hand, an arm; am I less human? The answer must be no! Consider the converse case. When we animate organic tissue, a finger, a hand, an arm, have we created a part of a human? The answer must also be emphatically no.”
Quote from Hans Hoobler: "What is walking among us? What cooks our meals and cleans our houses? What cares for our children? What strange creatures are these? What new race is born?”

A great concept and carried out in a way that we are just as blind and confused about what is going on as the hero. We are in his point of view, learning more as he learns more with the world slowly being revealed to us both. What is supposed to just be a pulp piece to keep experiencers entertained ends up being so much more. There was quite a bit of jumping around of the narrative, but after the first sentence of the chapter it was clear who was telling what part of the story; even though it is not necessarily clear where it all ties in to the story as a whole...but it all comes together perfectly as it continues. A definite page turner that will make you look at technology we have today and wonder where it leading us...

Wow. Just wow. This book is exceptional. Vivid characters and a very interesting plot. Dispite the numerous other books and movies on similar topics, this story feels original and suprising. Well written and a page turner.
