This book is very well written, you can imagine yourself in the environments that Renie and company find themselves in. Williams does a good job with character development as well, making you feel bad for characters such as Orlando with his "progeria." However, that makes this a very long read, so don't get this unless you want to spend longer-than-Lord-of-the-Rings time on this series.
When I was halfway through this title, I thought, wow this is turning out to be one of my favorite novels ever. The author uses vididly delightful detail. You find yourself thrown into imaginitive realms; trying to find out how you got there, just as the characters are doing the same. The characterization is execelent. I felt saddened when something bad happened to one of the characters. As if I knew them personally.
One of the characters tells a sort of folk tales throughout the story and these are deep moral stories within the main story itself. As if I were a child again and being read a beautiful bedtime tale of a distant era.
The plot is sort of like "The Matrix" meets "Sword Art Online". And I believe it suprisingly pre-dates both.
I was hoping the book would have more of a conclusion. It felt as though near the ending the author realized this was going to be longer than one book. So I felt like somewhere in the end the author's rythm was lost. Though, that doesn't mean anything was necessairly ruined. I am definitely planning to continue reading the series.
Intersecting characters and plots. I can't wait to read the second in the series and reread this one.
Can be difficult to follow, but worth it to read thru all 4 books.
The computer theory about how to live in an internet world without a body is intriguing. The different worlds he creates are amazing. It does get a bit tedious in the number of worlds he describes, but each add to his theory. The ending isn't quite as powerful as I hoped, but it does tie up his theory well.
