Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Stross’ latest foray is not for the faint of heart nor for readers looking for a lightweight story. This novel is a challenging read. Told from a distancing second-person point-of-view through multiple narrative voices, it paints a bleak, disturbing portrait of a world where seemingly the only commodity not counterfeited and sold on the Internet is free will.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“A savvy, funny, viciously inventive science fiction novel.” Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author
