    One thought on “Cybernetic Jungle”

    1. I wouldn’t call this great cyberpunk, but I did really enjoy it. I am unaccountably fascinated by stories that take place in Brazil so it had that going for it. I found the story coherent and believable, if a little more tragic than I had anticipated which was hard to swallow. It felt like it came out of nowhere, but it worked. I like The Wave; I liked the characters; Paulo was great; and Zaide is fantastic. Zaide’s best friend, Susana, is even better. The political machinations are enough t [...]

    2. Stupid, stupid, stupid book. Allegedly a cyberpunk book, although I found no evidence of that. In fairness to you and to the author, I didn't finish the book.

    4. This '90s cyberpunk thriller is made all the more alien and enticing by setting it in the Brasilia of 2028. Lewitt weaves the culture and classes of the city with story of corporate families battling for control and an off-beat street gang that crosses paths with them.
