The scientists, primarily quantum physicists, possess breakthrough technology that allows them to travel across vast distances as well as monitor others remotely through their gateway technology. The superpowers, especially the USA and China, are trying to capture the technology and the leaders of the group so they can dominate the planet...
It is a thought-provoking plot where each scientific breakthrough is analyzed for its effect on humanity and even the forces opposing the rebels rationally sort out their plans to capture the technology. The action is set against a background of intelligent discourse ranging from the effects of the technology on third-world farmers to the noosphere, the realm of human thought, and how it is affected by artificial intelligence....
Good science fiction is usually about humanity rather than deep space or death rays. NEMO'S WORLD is well-written science fiction that harkens back to the golden age of Heinlein and Asimov. ~IndieReader

All any of us want is the power to take back our freedoms from the do-gooders and evil that have taken it away from us.
Now, imagine a world where we can be taken away from repressive governments and societies and give humanity a new start without a great deal of bloodshed, death and chaos.
The author has constructed a world where this is possible and how it’s done can either be used for good or evil but the bad guys and gals are trying their best to get their hands on it. The trials and tribulations are well drawn out with interesting characters and realistic scenarios that keep you drawn into the story. Footnotes provide links to places where the reader can learn about things that they may not know about.
It is tightly written, well-constructed and very interesting. It also made my heart ache that something like the scenarios explored by this book aren’t already in existence spreading freedom throughout the world.
Am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!
The story moves along at a nice pace, keeping me interested enough to lose some hours of sleep. The tech details are well fleshed out and detailed, which might be slightly off-putting to those without a tech or science background, but as someone who works in hi-tech I thoroughly enjoyed.. Cool that the author actually provides footnotes with references at the end of the book to explain science and tech concepts and details that are important ideals in the story. Really puts the Sci in SciFi. The story definitely is more than your average space opera.
The story reaches a solid conclusion, but then includes a few surprises...the openings for the next book. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next volume in the series.
I was wrong. This volume takes off from the ending of Red Queen, and fully fleshes out the skeleton of ideas from the first volume. You start out wondering how they could possibly make things work, and they succeed. Great expansion of both the hard science and the social science, epic struggle between Darkness and Light, and just enough teases to make you eager for the next installment.
The novel picks up immediately after the events of The Red Queen. The students, along with a few older advisors, have escaped Earth, but the major governments on the planet are working to duplicate the technology and create more quantum gateways. They need to hunt down the rebels to stop the spread of the new technology. The governments are afraid that readily available gateways will open up a million habitable planets for colonization. Once people leave the Earth, the established governments will lose control (and power).
As the US government draws ever closer to making its own gateway, it fights the rebels with a propaganda campaign designed to make them appear to be terrorists. But the rebels are not without resources of their own, and soon the President and the security agents find themselves under surveillance by the very technology they created.
I read this novel in one sitting—something I do not always do—but every time I thought about putting it down, I wanted to find out what happened next. It is the type of book where you start thinking “I’ll just read a few pages more,” and then realize that another hour has passed and you are almost at the end, so you can’t quit now. I really wanted to find out about the wedding between two of the main characters, the baby in the works (so to speak), and the results of the court case as well as the outcome of the rebellion, the near civil war, and if the new colonies will succeed or if the attacks from Earth will destroy them.
I think that everyone who enjoyed The Red Queen ill agree that Nemo’s World is just as interesting as the first novel. Like the first novel, I really enjoyed the A.I. (artificial intelligence) chapters and laughed out loud where they start using humor. There is something wonderful about one A.I. “dissing” another one with the expression “your momma.” This is a five-star enjoyable read!
