When it is accidentally uncovered later, the private sector builds it and the government can't cover it up again. They try, but are unsuccessful at stopping the company from creating and using the portals.
The detail in this book is very deep. It almost feels like I could gather materials and build a portal. The door on the cover literally seems to be a portal; it is plain and boring, but makes perfect sense when the book is completed.
The real life feel and the timeline are what sets this book apart from the rest. The author uses the real world to create a hypothetical situation that feels very real. It even starts out with a chapter about how real it is! But I think I would notice if I could go anywhere in the world in four seconds. I also don't think the hotel industry would totally die off, since going anywhere away from home is the point of a vacation.
The book is an awesome SciFi read. It is highly technical and blends science and the economy. It is a fairly deep, challenging read, and that adds to the reality illusion.
Although it feels like a historical document, It reads more like a fictionalized history than a textbook, drawing you in, anticipating what each next step will be.
The science behind the technology is believable enough to make it passed my science BS filter. It was a pleasure to not have to forcibly suspend disbelief while reading this.
Overall, this was a refreshing read and well worth the time. I recommend it highly.
The transportation technology itself is almost treated as the novel’s main character, with the people involved with it treated as allies and foils. It’s an interesting approach, and one that pays off. Heavy on science, but in an approachable way, Flit offers a nice contrast between the public bureaucracies trying to regulate and the private business trying to reap their rewards.
Highly recommended for readers who appreciate the ‘science’ in their science fiction.
