“Action packed sequel to infomacracy that finally focused on the question: is micro democracy for everyone? Not quite finishing this answer, the book covers themes like tradition vs progress, is privacy required for freedom and even how hard is a multicultural relationship. I was, however, just not as invested in this book as the last one— at least a little because the main character was Roz rather than Ken. we did get a little bit of Mishima toward the end but I missed the previous characters. I also might not have given it wnough of my attention and would hands down recommend physical copy over audio.”
“Much slower than the first novel in The Centenal Cycle, Infomocracy. Otherwise, is a solid book in the series, and one that I found to be extremely entertaining.”
“3.5 Stars A VERY busy book of information. An OCD dream or nightmare. Now that I know of the world, we are put into another incident. The characyer are constantly flooded with information...filtering it and compiling the correct information to speak to the problem(s) at hand. I've gone straight into the next book, right away.”
