After hearing that this is a great book for readers who liked Ready Player One I jumped. But sadly it didn't live up to the hype. I pushed to the end but I should have probably bailed earlier on

Dove into this one today and loving the fast paced action! And the musical references. The narrator on the audio is fantastic.

At first I was really digging this book. The world is cool, there are tons of interesting science details, and the narrator's voice was entertaining. As the novel gets further into the plot, however, the story seemed like it couldn't make up its mind on where to go and so it zigzagged all over the place and was just generally confusing. I was sort of disappointed by the action of the plot overall.

Heads up to anyone who picked this up in the Audible Daily Deal a few days ago...

I was enjoying the narrator but was feeling a little lost so I pulled it up on Google Books to read the first few pages only to find that THE NARRATOR WASN‘T READING THE FOOTNOTES. This is probably not a deal-breaker to some but it bugged me.

I will definitely be reading this book about a teleporter accident gone wrong in the near future though.

LeahBergen How could they not read the footnotes?? 😮 2y

And the question of the weekend - and potentially ready to be furloughed for some days - what (physical) book should I read next? 💁‍♀️

Morrigan‘s vote is for Kafka, since the cat could be her cousin. 😸

Redwritinghood I ❤️ her eyes. So pretty. 2y
JPeterson @Redwritinghood Thanks! It‘s what drew us to her when we adopted her last year. 😻 2y
Owlizabeth Oooh, tough choice! I‘d go with the Murakami...maybe. The other sounds really interesting too. #NoHelp 2y

Yellowpigeon I always vote for a Murakami. So Kafka on the Shore. 2y
rubyslippersreads I would obey Morrigan. 😹 2y
cathysaid Uh oh...you must be a government employee. I agree with Morrigan as well. 2y
JPeterson Murakami it is! Morrigan is one smart cat, if the first few chapters are any indication 😊 @Owlizabeth @Yellowpigeon @rubyslippersreads @cathysaid 2y

There‘s so much about this to love, and when it focused on those things, I really enjoyed it. But I feel like the “religious nut job cult leader” bad guy thing kind of holds it back. The not so subtle jabs at religion really irked me.

Always kind of weird but cool when an author comments or likes a review I did. I think it's really cool that they take the time to respond to their readers. Very down to earth and appreciated😁

The last two books from today's deliveries. That's enough for a while I think. #SeptemberBookHaul #bookhaul #scifi #sciencefiction

Solid hard sci-fi thriller, a little heavier on the science than I usually prefer, but I enjoyed. Pacing and plotting were good and the elements of snark and sarcasm were fun. Think Dark Matter with nods to '80's music thrown in.

readordierachel Sounds great! 2y

The Punch Escrow is a fun exercise in the possibilities and dangers of future tech. With a virtual army of spies, mad scientists, and religious fanatics, the story is fast-paced and exciting. There's nothing heavy here, not even philosophical questions. Narrated by a smartass hero, the story never indulges in too much moralizing about the inherent dangers of unfettered technological development
