Summary ´ Synners Author Pat Cadigan Xternal landscape have fused to the point where any encounter with reality is incident. I d kinda forgotten how much I love good cyberpunk until I read this Turns out I really really like itInterestingly in many ways this feels like a preuel to much of the cyberpunk I ve read The main contention is the invention of putting sockets into people s heads to allow them to experience and manipulate the datelines read internet directly the result of which or something similar is what Gibson and Scott and their friends are basically examining So from a getting started perspective I found this book really awesome and in lots of other ways tooCadigan takes the cast of thousands approach using multiple perspectives although always in third person to show lots of different dimensions and angles to the story There were times at which this was a bit confusing but on reflection I wonder if this wasn t done intentionally There were uite a few chapters which shifted perspective where the new character could have been one of several and it s only revealed whose story we re reading after a page or so This contributed to the fairly frenetic feel that the entire book indulges in which is largely appropriate given the madness that ensues in the second half of the story It s also very nice because the variety of characters and their individual stories give wonderful perspective and insight into different aspects of the story Which I likedThe world Cadigan has created is simultaneously a bit dated it was published in 1991 but once some of the terms are translated also uite recognisable She talks of datalines and how people get their news that s basically souped up data retrieval services and massively hyped up RSS readers that do the work for you And then they use the sockets initially to rev up rock music videos which is just such an hysterically funny idea that the sheer bizarreness just carried me away giggling and happily belief suspended Also there s a lot of drug use Which is perhaps neither here nor there but also certainly adds to the manicness The plot revolves around the introduction of sockets and what that might mean for society with a whole lot of corporate hijinkery and espionage and hackery as well There s a fatherdaughter relationship that pops up every now and then not something you see every day in this sort of futuristic novel as well as somewhat surprisingly when you see the characters a love story that s not very romantic in one way but actually really is sweet in a fierce I ll deck you sort of way Plus a load of bizarre and whacked friendships and enmities that go a long way towards populating this world with dysfunctional but uite entertaining charactersThis was my first Cadigan novel I ll be coming back for In fact I have Tea from an Empty Cup sitting on my shelf

Summary ´ Synners Author Pat Cadigan In Synners the line between technology and humanity is hopelessly slim A constant stre. Took me three times through to be fairly sure I had all there was in this book when I first read it back in the early 90s It s dense It s cryptic Its narrative cuts are very very sharp It s got its own slang and a heap of expert IT argot and it bristles with wicked lines If you can t eat it or fuck it and it can t dance throw it away Ninety percent of life is being there and the other ten percent is being there on time And the key motif the one the whole book s about Change for the machines O my yes that still works best of allThe characters are nearly as sharp as the lines and the world building is neat info LA plugged into every form of VR there was from appetite suppressant implants to insty parties for the suburban wannabes via somebody s gypsy cam and somebody else s wired up hot suit It has excellent space opera sub stories and wild ideas about the old SF chestnuts like What is Human To uote the other catch phrase is all that far enough up the stupidsphere for youWith 20 years and change since the first time I worried that like so many near future cutting edge novels it wouldn t work when the future catches up But Synners makes it in spades The info scene is actually right on line the comp science was so well done that it hardly feels dated The frenzy about viruses is all that seems a bit retrospective now But the people are still cool And the lines are still sharp And the story still whacks along like Metallica on fast forward and the scenarios haven t lost an inch of punch Esp the melt down viral breakout and the last showdown on the virtual lake shore uick nod to Stranger on the Shore there with its scene jumping almost as fast and confusing for the reader as it is for Gina and Gabe A few books aren t just a good read but become a world you don t want to leave I m happy Synners is still one in my small pile of those Anyone too far up in the stupidsphere to whack to it in Synnerspeak and a number of reviewers seem to have been well that s a real shame for her or him
