Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Immortality can be yours. By extracting your brain from your dying body and connecting it to a collective neural network, you can live forever in a shared simulated world: Solipsis. But when a group of religious fanatics hijacks their brains, the people of Solipsis find themselves in a virtual hell. Cut off from the outside world, there is no escape from the Comatorium. Renee, a teenage girl who has lived her whole life inside a computer, is hell-bent on either freeing her society, or putting them out of their immortal misery.

This isn't a polished novel, though. There's pacing problems and I got a little confused as to how we got from plot point A to point B sometimes. Many times, the author's voice clearly came through with a soapbox speech by a character.
This author needs an editor to help out. He has some good ideas, just needs to avoid pitfalls. This book has pitfalls, but it has some good stuff too. If you're game for new authors, new ideas, this is one to pick up. If you can only read polished stories, stay away.
The sci-fi setting and premise were enough of a hook for me to read the whole thing, so I'll give it that. But even there, fight and chase scenes that take place in a virtual world where one party has administrator access strain my suspension of disbelief. And the transition from the coming-of-age story to the thriller was extremely abrupt.
It also took a bit to get used to the writing style, where I think the history of this work as a screenplay shows through. The beginning of chapter 2 reads like a description you'd give to your set designer; it shows that the author has thought about this place in detail, but felt a bit clumsy for a written narrative.
It was a great read, could not put it down. I enjoyed many of the themes to the point that I was literally angry at the antagonist which doesn't happen very often.
