Gridlinked – Neal Asher September 26, 2007Posted by taryn in best books ever, sci fi.
I picked up this book after reading Pmarc’s list of the top ten sci fi books of the noughties. Its well worth a try. This is another one that I couldn’t put down – I’ve had a great month of reading :)
In this world, AI’s run the universe and honestly, why would you trust any one else to?
Ian Cormac, Special Agent, has been ‘gridlinked’ for thirty years, ten over the max, and is going through serious withdrawal. He has been sent to investigate the destruction of the AI, city and ‘runcible’ on a far off way world. He is being chased by a terrorist hell bent on revenge and his team of mercenaries cum robot golems.
It’s classic spy mystery pumping action.
And the good news is – there are loads more to come.
