Transmission product reviews

Meet Arjun Mehta, an Indian cybergeek catapulted into California's spiralling hi-tech sector; Leela Zahir, beguiling Bollywood actress filming in the midge-infested Scottish wilds; and Guy Swift, hypedup marketing exec lost in a blue-sky tomorrow of his own devising.

Three dislocated individuals seeking nodes of connectivity - a place to fit in. Yet this is the twenty-first century, and their lives are about to become unexpectedly entangled, as a virus spreads, and all their futures are rewired. But will it take them further from their dreams, or closer to their hearts?

Hmmm... what do I say here... though I was quite impressed with this book, I found it a little hard to get into. A very long, slow start became an action-packed few chapters, which died suddenly within the last 10% of the story, leaving a lot of loose ends and implied content. I think I would have been happier if there had been a bit more of the ending fleshed out, instead of just outlined and left hanging.

However, though the structure left me a little disappointed, the content did not. Full of rich and colourful characters, well defined and as close to lifelike as the story would allow. I was surprised at the high level of detail he included on some otherwise esoteric topics, such as behind-the-scenes in an anti-virus lab, etc. It was quite realistic on many levels, which meant that the story held well, flowed smooth, and left me feeling... well, if not 'happy' then at least NOT considering it a total write-off... no pun intended.

overall, I found it to be quite a good book... not really my ideal reading, but right up there with a lot of potential for sure.
