The book provides a fast-paced follow-up to the previous book in the series, The Aremac Project, but you don't need to have read book one to enjoy this one. Coupling Theoretical Physics, governments' need to control technology to their advantage, the culture of Navaho reservations, and the ever-seething turmoil of West African states, Weinberg takes you on a rip-roaring ride across the world as the band of scientists responsible for the memory-reading Aremac struggle to maintain ethical control of `the monster' technology they've constructed.
Some of the science takes a little suspension of disbelief, but that's true of a lot of science fiction. No one really understands yet how memories are exactly processed and stored, so there's lots of theoretical lee-way and the tech used here explores one path. The relationships between the characters, as well as their relationships with technology and their cultures, are also well-developed. This was a very enjoyable read and the pacing was spot on.
Hope your English is better and you'll experience beautiful world of this book :)
