Before you buy a synthetic human, read this book.
This story covers so much ground thoughtfully — and quickly. The future of news media, the power of big business, the social impacts of technology, the morality of immortality, the enduring nature of love… they all factor into this fast-paced action movie of a novel.
Based on a foundation of highly advanced (yet accessible for the reader) technology, Verastiqui quickly establishes both the characters and the world they live in with clever dialog and enough description to visualize the scenes without bogging down in detail. Few characters are who they appear to be initially – some of them aren’t even human! Throw in enough plot twists to keep your mind churning on what’s going to happen next during the times when you are actually able to put the book down, and Perion Synthetics is definitely worth a read.
