Nanovision is action packed. It blends the underground world of Las Vegas with the mystery of untested bio-technology. This composition creates a tale of murderous suspense as Daniel Raye finds a way to avenge his father by seeing to the destruction of mobster Mickey the Spoon. How refreshing it was to read a science fiction novel whose characters had human frailties and yet whose topic of scientific development provided the necessary means for dramatic conflict. In Nanovision, science is not the enemy but rather the enforcer of justice. In a way, Daniel Raye becomes a modern super hero and it made me wish I had x-ray vision.
The character development was fabulous and Paul T Harry wrote this book so well. The story line is very engaging and exciting. The invention, Daniel's aunt tried to conduct was shocking; but I liked the X-ray vision developed by Daniel. His purpose to develop it was really impressive.
It was a great Sci-Fi which I enjoyed a lot and completed reading so fast. I can't recommend enough!
It's been a while since I've read a straight sci-fi novel. Lately, it's been sci-fi mixed with fantasy, or more of a space opera. So I was pretty excited to be able to read Nanovision - how cool does x-ray vision sound?! What I got though, was so much more.
Most of this book doesn't really focus on the extraordinary vision that Daniel ends up with. Which, to me, was a little bit of a disappointment, but at least it kept things moving along and exciting. Well, mostly. Especially if you don't read the synopsis very closely. Because the synopsis gives away at least 60% of the plot and I really hate when that happens. Like I wish it had stopped with the x-ray vision and just mentioned a little bit of the mob stuff, or maybe mentioned the mob stuff and just briefly touched on nanovision. I don't know, I just think I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't known EXACTLY what was going to happen.
But, aside from that, it was still one heck of a ride. I don't read many mob books, but Mickey was absolutely terrifying. I would NOT want to be the one on the run from him, and I'd be so scared if I realized he was coming after me again. That being said, I did think it was way too easy for Mickey to find Daniel after the fact. I'm pretty sure the Witness Protection Program works better than that, but who knows what can happen when the mob gets involved. Everything just seemed too... convenient? I think that's a good word for it.
The science was really interesting, and I loved that Nano-Bytes is such an animal-friendly place. I'm glad they only test on injured animals to make them better, and don't hurt them in order to have something to fix. I probably would have given up on the book immediately if that was the case though, so I'm glad I didn't have to throw it across the room and curse at it. I did give it quite the side-eye before Ethyl explains though!
My favorite scenes were probably the ones in the casino, as I could definitely tell that a lot of care and knowledge went into them. They're so detailed and were exactly what I imagined a casino to be like! I loved how Daniel used his new-found abilities in the casino, and still played the fool. It was hilarious!
Overall, this was a pretty decent book. I think a lot of my frustration with it came from the synopsis being too long and not quite enough of the science, but I think that boils down to personal preference and that many people would still enjoy this book. If you like your sci-fi mixed with the mob, suspense, and a little gambling definitely get your hands on Nanovision ASAP! I'd give it a 3/5.
