Nice idea driven sf

Robert J Sawyer has his flaws as a writer. His books are not exactly breathtakingly thrillers and his characters are often simple. I can understand why some people is annoyed by his liberal world view and morals. Even for a progressiv Scandinavian as me, it can get a bit to politically correct. People just aren't that nice, I find myself thinking while reading his books. And in this one especially the autistic father is a bit to much a construction for me to believe in him, Sawyers research about autism shines through the description of him.

But i really like his books. The Neanderthal trilogy and now this one are very entertaining and impossible to put down when you've started reading them. They are classic science fiction stories, driven by ideas, rather than plot and characters and as a reader you shouldn't expect more. Or less.

I am really looking forward to the last book in the series.

I started reading the first book in this trilogy, WWW.wake yesterday lunchtime.

I have just finished this book, WWW.Watch today, 1932 hours EST.

That tells you all you need to know what I think of this work.

It is brilliant, clever, affecting, funny, hopeful and glorious with optimism.

I can't wait, I just can't wait for the third book, WWW.Wonder.

Jessica Almasy is wonderful in this, as young Caitlin Decter, we are going to hear a whole lot more of her. The others played their parts excellent well, but Almasy is peerless.

Audible, thank you. I shall listen to this over and over again.

Great reading and good story!

The reading is great with familiar voices for the different characters. The story picks up from the first book, WWW wake, and continues the storylines.
If you liked the first book you won't be disappointed!

A smarmy utopian singularity series.

As a modern day fairy story it is okay, perhaps. The series unfortunately unwinds to a silly end. The performance is good but the story has too many contentious elements and opinionated discussions. A friend of mine would consider it regressive rather than progressive, and I tend to agree with him.
