As a series of short stories it's not bad, but the premise of "algorithmic decay" was sufficiently interesting, and sufficiently unexamined, that it made the book something of a disappointment. Ultimately it served only to explain a variety of disasters to which characters had to respond (both the disasters and responses showed substantial variation and imagination). The characters mostly lasted only as long as a single short, except as a recurrent plot device. The jumps in setting and circumstances could also be difficult to follow, since there wasn't much exposition to cover the gaps.
My rating of the book reflects the fact that some of the short stories were independently creative and interesting SF, but this was tempered by the fact that the quality varied a lot, and the overall arc had promise that wasn't realized.
Interesting read. Not bad for a parody of the world's most frequented SciFi Blog/author - just ask him, but don't check the numbers...
Cant wait for the sequel. Now what was it that was transmitted?
The story is told as a series of vignettes and snapshots that in their arc loosely sketch out the overall story. The opening is very solid. Later bits vary more, some dragging, some amazing. In all cases the central premise is present and furthered, of what happens to society as the trust and infrastructure that holds it together decays.
Worth a read.
