Rainbows End

February 27th, 2014

In January and February I read Rainbows End by Vernor Vinge. It was recommended to me by a friend out on the east coast. He’s a guy that loves to get all the new gadgets and loves to talk geek with you. He also rides bikes so he’s a balanced member of society.

You're Welcome!

My friend is polite though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were on the phone one day and mentioned I had been reading a bit of science fiction. He immediately jumped and recommended this book. The book is all about the future of technology, wearable computing, digitization and how people now interact with technology. Wrapped up in a thick noir the book takes a while to start explaining the technology and characters before moving the plot forward with any real effort. Once the plot starts to develop the pace of the book picks up quickly and becomes really hard to put the book down.
