5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great story, even better ideas, particularly for a media saturated society. 22 janvier 2011

This is the same review I left on the hardback version of this, figured I would post it to the Kindle version as well.

Transcendence is an ambitious book that covers a huge range of sci-fi and philosophical ideas, while maintaining the pace of an adventure that spans the solar system.

The solar system is dominated by two mega-corporations that have settled into a kind of cold war reminiscent of the US vs Soviet Union. Against this background, a reality TV star, a gang kid, a scientist and others try to figure out their place in the world and what the future holds for them.

The most interesting aspect of it for me are the ideas of a perpetually wired humanity, where the internet is built into each person's brain. Media overload, and the distance it creates between people, is eerily reminiscent of how today's world world is moving. When every fantasy can be lived virtually, instantly, how can real people compete? Media is a huge theme in the book, delving Internet addiction, government manipulation through news and fiction, and the difficulty in telling the difference between reality and virtual worlds when both seem equally real.

Even with all the heavy ideas though, the story is still fun and exciting. Thematically, I woudl compare it to Spider Robinson's Mindkiller/Time Pressure books, while structurally it reminds me of how some of Neal Stephenson's works are built (multiple main characters scattered across large areas).

3.0 étoiles sur 5 WILL MOSTLY APPEAL TO COMPUTER GEEKS (god love'm all), GAMERS & CYBERPUNK ENTHUSIASTS 25 juillet 2015
Par Robert Steven Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com

Recently saw the Johnny Depp movie-version and thought the book might be a worthy read. The movie was okay, but it had almost nothing in common with the book except the book/movie title and the Johnny Depp character. They were about as different as they could possibly be ... and that's probably a good thing! If the movie had been more like the book it would have been at least 28 hours long and we'd all have gone to sleep without getting to the end. (Also not necessarily a bad thing ... the conclusion of the book sucks.) There are certainly an unknown amount of scifi junkies out there that this book will more readily appeal to (got no problem with that) - the main underlying theme is interesting enough; combining aspects of computer programs, chips and hardware with human intelligence through surgical implants in an effort to create Artificial Intelligence, Cyborgs and very smart people. This is a current concept and popular genre for scifi authors. Therein lies the problem. There are so many more great books now available in this genre, that this novel won't be worth its price for many readers. It is extremely long, boring, meandering and has way too many meaningless characters with entire chapters explaining their convoluted backgrounds, which does little or nothing to add to the primary story. Okay. Here is the real skinny. The novel has a little bit of so many different new concepts, that some of them are bound to appeal to some readers. But, in my case, not enough to rate the book higher than average. Also, this book leans more toward the "Cyberpunk" genre, which is not my thing rather than conventional scifi ... if Cyberpunk happens to be your thing: THEN GO FOR IT.!

Ever read a book that you were glad to finish? I have been a avid reader of SCFI for over 40 years, and maybe it's just me, but I found this to be the hardest read ever. Too much tech and not enough people involvement.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 READ THIS BOOK, AND THE SEE THEMOVIE 24 mai 2014
Par MOMMY IS A GENIUS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As with many book-turned-movie titles, There is so much left out, of the book, for the sake of commercial appeal.

The books is a little boring in the beginning, but has a slow, rising build-up. Overall, a very good read, for rainy nights.

I am trying not to spoil the plot, but please read this book, before seeing the film.
