This could easily have had 5 stars from!
The over sexed theme throughout and it not even fitting into the story; turned the rating way down.
The imagination shown and the solid story were really overshadowed by the smut and sleaze, trying to masquerade as humor!
Quantaman has created a vividly detailed future landscape with particular attention to attitudes and social mores. It is a future marked by tremendous strides in electronics, particularly those associated with communications and surveillance, but relatively little progress in other industries, such as shipping. Business is dominated by a handful of transnational conglomerates. Society is more regimented, with communities arranged in interlocking hexagonal grids. And yet, many of the ills of society are unchanged. Rebellious youth let off steam at “slasherrock” dance clubs. Taxes eat away at income. Greedy corporations defraud both investors and customers.
Readers may not find this a quick or easy read. The unique slang and techno jargon are much more pervasive than A Clockwork Orange or any other book this reviewer has encountered. Characters may have several different names bestowed by different associates or adopted at different stages of their life. The narrative frequently and abruptly switches perspective and time frame. The book requires a greater investment of time and mental effort, but rewards the reader with an intelligent story, complex characters, intricately interwoven relationships, witty characterizations and thought-provoking ideas of how current social problems might have evolved after the next sixty years.
