This is ostensibly the story of a future China in a period of political upheaval, but many of the ideas explored have immediate consequences, and some of the scenes in the book directly echo today, in ways that are often uncomfortable. The AI that is central(?) to the story is an interesting construct, and very different from the voodoo-worshipping AI of Gibson or the post singularity monster of MacLeod. But what really makes this book sing is the human element. The familial connection of the characters, whether biological or assumed, is very real and true. The complex motivations of the the protagonists and antagonists (and the difficulty telling which is which occasionally) draw you in and keep you wondering what will happen next.
Cyberpunk/nanopunk/fururepunk has long needed a new epic for a modern world, and much like Steven Erikson updated the tropes that Tolkien and Eddings established for Fantasy, Jeffries does an amazing job of updating Gibson and Sterling for a modern world, with understandings not just of how the world is viewed today, but a deep understanding of the real technological issues we will need to solve.
Definitely a worthwhile read.
I got the book early in exchange for an honest review. After I read the first few chapters I bought copies for my friends and sent it to them too. It really is that great!
