I can only marvel at how he finds his inspiration for a high-tech tale in an ancient wisdom like Kabbalah, and then proceeds to out-Kabbalah even the Kabbalists with his creativity - Goodreads reviewer, | ?? | ?? | ?? | ?? | ?? Egan questions what it really means to be human in a way that it's quite unsurpassed in my mind - Goodreads reviewer, | ?? | ?? | ?? | ?? | ??THIS is why I read SF. THIS is the sense of wonder I'm looking for in a SF story. Forget everything you read about virtual reality, artificial life & consciousness - nothing compares to the concepts and the worldbuilding in this book. This is ultimate postcyberpunk ever - Goodreads reviewer, | ?? | ?? | ?? | ?? | ??I can say without qualification that Greg Egan is the greatest science fiction author I've ever read - Goodreads reviewer, | ?? | ?? | ?? | ?? | ??.

Review: I struggled to get into this book, which happens to me from time to time so I tend to keep on reading, rather than give up. I’m really glad I kept on with it because I love this book. Maybe I’m not smart enough to get everything they were trying to say, and while I really do like knowing the intentions or meanings an author wanted to convey, I believe what’s important is how it makes an impact on the reader. I honestly don’t know how to describe this book, it has so many layers and brought out so many emotions in me. It was a great story and a great adventure. Really glad my friend recommended this to me.

Review: I found this to be more a philosophical investigation of virtual reality than a story that exposes concepts. Anyone who has already read many stories of virtual reality will find a number of familiar ideas here - not that it's a copycat book, but you can only do so much with a given theme. What this book does is to explore the area in quite some detail. If you're interested in the theme in its own right, you're likely to enjoy this, but, as a philosophical investigation there are large gobs of narrator exposition, rather than telling a story. If you want a good story, this isn't the book for you.

    Description: What was Pig City?' thought Laura. Soon it would be something that everyone wanted to be part of Laura Sibbie is trying to find the perfect 'pigs' for her new club, Pig City: classmates who can keep the biggest secret ever! But to make sure that none of them tells anyone else about the club, each one must give an 'insurance' - something totally embarrassing - to be hidden unless they break the most important law of Pig City. As Pig City grows and the 'pigs' rule the school, the 'insurances' get more daring and when hotshot Gabriel finds out about the club, life gets more risky for the 'pigs' and more complicated for Laura. Is something terrible going to happen? Now there is a new club around, Monkey Town, and they are going to turn Pig City upside down.

  • Faber & Faber The Other Paris

    Price: £20.00

    Brand: Faber & Faber

     

    Description: Paris, the City of Light, the city of fine dining, seductive couture and intellectual hauteur, was until fairly recently always accompanied by its shadow: the city of the poor, the outcast, the criminal, the eccentric, the wilfully nonconforming. In The Other Paris, Luc Sante gives us a panoramic view of that second metropolis, whose traces are in the bricks and stones of the contemporary city, and in the culture of France itself. Richly illustrated with over three hundred images, The Other Paris reclaims the city from the modern bon vivants and speculators; scuttling through the knotted streets, through the whorehouses and dance halls, the knock-out shops and hobo shelters of the old city.
