A really novel plot, combined with great characterisation makes for an unusual and absolutely beguiling book. ( )

Interesting tech, but not one of Vinge's more compelling reads. The characters feel a little too much like cutouts. The best part of the tech was the notion that adults could not compete with children in the realm of eduction. The kids just lived and breathed it in a way adults could not. But, of course, in the end experience does matter. ( )

Putting this one down for awhile. It starts with a really interesting premise and then focuses on a real jerk weasel. I get cranky and unhappy every time I read a little bit of it. Some day I'd like to come back and see where he goes with the premise, but not today.

I hesitate to say that the writing in this book is good. It is often weighted down by excessive exposition, but there are flashes of cleverness that occasionally slip through. The characterization was modern and dynamic. The theme was well-established. The setting was interesting and thoroughly laid-out. The bits of occasional cleverness made it seem as if Vinge could have written it better. It just seemed as if he was more excited by the ideas he wanted to get across than the story.

Excessive exposition is the bane of science-fiction, and Vinge is no exception. However, he did do one clever thing with it. I often noticed that he would introduce a new technology or idea into the story first, have the characters encounter or mention it, and only later explain it. This construction gave a kind of 'two track' effect. If you were reading along and picked up what was going on from context, then you got your exposition integrated into the narrative (which is ideal). If you missed it, you eventually got an explanation and were not left totally lost. While I prefer the first way of doing exposition, a synthesis between the first and second is still preferable to the second only (where the scientist or expert explains to the protagonist or sidekick every damn little thing ad nauseum.)

Overall, a good science fiction novel, in the 'near-future techno-thriller' subgenre. Better for SF fans who don't mind exposition problems than a more general audience. Recommended if you liked Stross's Halting State, which is very similar. Stross has ideas along the same lines; they're less complicated but better integrated into a narrative.

I liked the world he created and I loved his cranky, cantankerous old man main character, but didn't really love the plot. ( )
