Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Edelman presents a gritty, tech-heavy thriller that builds on cyberpunk tropes in interesting and detailed new ways. The world developed in 2008's MultiReal and 2009's Infoquake has become inflamed with civil war and rebellion as MultiReal, a technology that mathematically projects possible futures to aid in decision making, suddenly becomes inaccessible. Into this chaos, MultiReal-D makes its first tentative appearance, building on the earlier technology to allow the user to essentially exist in multiple time lines for 60 seconds. Numerous characters seek their own goals in a labyrinthine plot, but Edelman does manage to bring his disparate threads together to create a coherent and even cohesive conclusion that's most accessible and satisfying to those who have read the earlier books. (Feb.)

There were a lot of really nasty people in this series, and you have to admire how they played off each other. Natch's transformation at the end seemed a little out of place, despite all of the revelations he experienced. Overall this series showed a great deal of promise, but Natch's choices at the end caught me by surprise, because there did not seem to be enough evidence to support it.

First let me say that I love the world and the idea behind the series. I had a great time reading the books and I would have given this a 5 for that. However I also want to give it a 3 for other reasons. So I settled on a 4. I am going to try to keep major spoilers out of this but there may be a few smaller ones.

My major issue with the series is for things that seemed like they should be linked, but never were. It is Natch's story but the Surina's influence the whole world. Everyone seems to play in the sandbox they made. There are two parallel stories about Surina technology, Teleportation and MultiReal. Both are similar in the way they could change society and how the government wants to stop them. The novels do a great job illustrating that. Teleportation was neutered before it could be perfected. It is implied that teleportation could be instant, but is now limited to a time intensive process (hours). MultiReal's fate I won't get into because of spoilers.

The code for both of these technologies came from the same place, the Surina's. It is mentioned that the code for Teleportation and MultiReal share/have similar structures. That they "fit" together. It seems obvious that with both technologies one could really move between realities. The human race could truly evolve into a go anywhere/do anything post human existence. The clues in the book make it seem like this was the Surina plan from the beginning.

My problem is that this never happens. None of the characters bring it up as a possibility or solution. They never even see the connection. To me it would have been a great place to take the story. An even more fascinating possibility on top of a the great world we were already given.

So I think it is a great series and a good read but I am disappointed in where we eventually ended up. Or at least in where we could have ended up but didn't. Hopefully a future series in this universe will explore that more.

So I'm giving the final book of the trilogy five stars, even though I don't think it is significantly better than the first two books, both of which I gave four stars to. The book is deserving of five stars simply for the incredibly detailed future world Edelman has created and the concepts that he conveyed in the books, which I'm sure I will be contemplating for quite a while. The future of capitalism, democracy, technology, biology, software, marketing, the news media, and entertainment were all well-thought out and thoroughly explored in this book. It was all so incredibly detailed, self-consistent, and just down-right creative that it felt genuine. There's a reason why each book contains appendices and a glossary to explain all that's going on in these novels. For the "world building" alone, the trilogy, if not the third book, deserves a five-star rating.

The one major problem with this book was that the first half was pretty bland, with not much happening and very little tension. Don't get me wrong, the "ho-hum" narrative set up a satisfying and suspenseful conclusion, but, tellingly, it took me a little over a week to read the first half of the book and less than 24 hours to read the last half.

Every once in a great while I run across an author who has imagined a world so vivid and complete that I feel as if it actually exists. When that world is set hundreds of years in the future, this feat of creation is even more astounding.

Geosynchron, the final piece of David Edelman's Jump 225 Trilogy, completes the story of entrepreneur Natch, convincingly portraying his evolution from self-centered businessman to socially-conscious guardian of MultiReal. Infected with life-threatening black code and on the run from his nemesis Brone as well two executives vying for control of the Government, Natch must choose between two paths, each with dire consequences for the welfare of the human race.

As with its predecessors, this novel features intense action sequences, mentally-stimulating political maneuvering, and interesting thematic material. Here, the possible unification of the connectibles (the majority of the population who fully embrace the fusion of their bodies with software that regulats their bodily functions and connects them to the Datasea) and the unconnectibles (a minority group who have chosen to remain in a more-or-less natural state), and the disparate viewpoints they embrace, form a central motif.

If humans are on an inevitable path towards perfection, is it truly possible to destroy a technology that has the possibility to improve the human condition (but with alarming collateral consequences) or can we only hope to come up with a way to restrict its proliferation until adequate controls are in place? This is not only Natch's dilemma, but the dilemma our society faces as we stand on the brink of technologies that could alter the course of human evolution.

The Jump 225 Trilogy, for me, deserves not only a wide readership but also recognition as one of the most important sci-fi works of our time.
