I’m a diehard science fiction fan and choose most of my reading from Prime Unlimited (The price is right and I do find quite a few excellent first works who I’m sure would never see light in the old paper publisher’s world) , I will choose from the big time guys when they publish; e.g., Neal Stephenson.
It is heartening to read a first novel of such scope and depth, ignoring a few technical difficulties, is a pleasure. I suggest everyone who enjoys the “cyberpunk” genre put this novel high on their list. It establishes a sound foundation for future works.
I am not a fan of short stories, especially those whose description reads great only to find it is 30 pages long. The author Drew Cordell promised a second work in a series, however when finding two more on Amazon they were indeed not a sequel. But still I’ll give this work a 5 star rating.
I look forward to how Baron Jacob Ashton helps save humanity
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This science fiction borrows from many dystopian mega-city traditions, but it begins and it finishes with a rather awesome focus on Thoughts.
No, no, not like the thought police, although there *is* a bit of that going on, but on the interesting concretization of thoughts becoming actionable and even becoming possessions that people can trade for basic living expenses in the slums. Let's hook you up and scan you, son. Any original thoughts? No? Oh well, you can get your basic living allowance as long as you tow the line.
Eeek. Not only timely and eerily like what we've already got now, the author takes it to new levels and lets the elite and the big computer that runs the society do some really interesting things... such as the pursuit of Absolute Knowledge... which, you should know, is pretty much a euphemism. :)
This is a dystopia with lots of clandestine and thrilling counter-culture elements, after all, and I can name at least 3 major and pretty awesome plot twists that I'm not going to spoil for your reading pleasure, but rest assured that the story is quite solid and interesting throughout, not just a pretty idea, but a character-driven thriller as well.
The book delivers. Are you looking for some clever SF with cyberpunk elements and a Hard-SF dystopia with a good MC that struggles, strives, against the machine? Look no further. :)
Absolute Knowledge is a page turner and compelling read.
I bought this book on Amazon UK and chose to share the review on Amazon.com also.
Great cinematic scene building really transports you into the story and sucks you in.
If this is the new cyberpunk, I am excited for the rest of this trilogy!
