Firstly I’m not sure this is the book to be calling Suarez a legitimate heir to Crichton, but that’s by the by.
I did enjoy the book – and while not as much as Daemon or Freedom (but more than the drone related one that I can’t be arsed to google) it was still a very enjoyable read. I loved the premise, that a shady off hte books govt agency has harvested all the new tech for the last 50 years and is keeping it from everyone to maintain the status quo.
Would I recommend reading it? Well yeah, I guess so if you like this sort of thing, and you’re wiling to let a few of the plot holes pass you by
