    One thought on “Hyperthought”

    1. The Earth in Hyperthought has been mostly destroyed with people living underground or in domes. The north is controlled by powerful corporations while the south is free. In the south Jolie Sauvage runs a business acting as a tour guide for rich northerners. She meets Jin, a handsome movie star and son of one of the corporation CEO's. She falls for Jin, but he leaves for California to have experimental surgery on his brain. Nanobots are inserted into his brain to help expand his thought processes [...]

    2. This is a very fast paced book with lots of action. At under 200 pages it is a very fast read. I do think that the breivity of the book does sacrifice character development. The only character we get to know is Jolie and we only get a small glimpse into her past. I was never sure what made her tick and the character (not unlike real women) seemed inconsistent. I would have liked to have a more indepth look into the characters and into how society had transformed from present day into the bleak f [...]

    3. This book isn't great but it isn't bad either. I would give it 3.5 stars if that were and option, since it's not as good as books I generally give 4 stars to. It is fairly light reading for a book about nano technology. Occasionally the storyline seems strays or has some holes, and the characters could have been fleshed out better. Still it is a quick read with lots of action and interesting concepts so I'm not sorry I took the time to read it.

    4. I had been really excited about this book, but was let down a little. I don't know how to explain it other than that you could tell that it was written by a woman immediately. I don't really remember much about it aside from that. If I am ever a sci-fi writer I will probably use that same tactic with the initials or make up a male pseudonym like Alice Sheldon/James Tiptree, Jr.

    5. Poor writing aside, I found the story to be interesting, but the book is so poorly edited that there are multiple typos on almost every page. I would happily give this book another star if it were better written, but as it is now, I would not recommend it to anyone.

    6. Good. Too much of a love story. I did enjoy the main characters' strong friendships. Stark, toxic, swirling surface of the earth. Strong female lead who had grown up as a sort of a "sewer rat." MM Buckner's first novel. I would read another.

    7. Got this for pretty cheap on Kindle just to have something. It wasn't very well written and the story wasn't great either. I made it to the end, but wouldn't really recommend it.

    8. this was a very short book but it was great! There were so many events packed into the less than hundred pages and details were not spared. I was able to picture everything in my head. great book!
