_Limit of Vision_ by Linda Nagata is an interesting relatively near future science fiction thriller, one that was a little slow going and perhaps even choppy at first, with disparate storylines and at least at first with characters fairly light on detail, but about a quarter of the way into the book became a riveting narrative with a brisk pace, great tension, and a wonderful sense of escalation Though at least one of the main characters remained to me at least not as well formed as I would hav _Limit of Vision_ by Linda Nagata is an interesting relatively near future science fiction thriller, one that was a little slow going and perhaps even choppy at first, with disparate storylines and at least at first with characters fairly light on detail, but about a quarter of the way into the book became a riveting narrative with a brisk pace, great tension, and a wonderful sense of escalation Though at least one of the main characters remained to me at least not as well formed as I would have liked and I thought the opening was a bit too open ended, revolving some but not all or even most of the story s problems, it was all in all an enjoyable book.What is it about I will try to avoid spoilers, but
Limits of Vision 2001 focuses on nearly microscopic artefacts that in conjunction act like a distributed Computer net, a non conscious Hive Mind that adumbrates the kind of non conscious galactic civilization. Fascinating vision of a possible future When I read it in 2001, I thought it her best yet. In the not too near future, nanotechnologist Virgil Copeland and his team are on the frontier of AI development They ve created a near microscopic new species called LOVs, because they exist at the limit of human vision LOVs form a symbiotic link with their human host s brain Because of this link and the potential power LOVs have over their hosts, they have been deemed unsafe and banished to a ship orbiting earth But Virgil s team have rescued some LOVs from their exile, and using themselv In the not too near future, nanotechnologist Virgil Copeland and his team are on the frontier of AI development They ve created a near microscopic new species called LOVs, because they exist at the limit of human vision LOVs form a symbiotic link with their human host s brain Because of this link and the potential power LOVs have over their hosts, they have been deemed unsafe and banished to a ship orbiting earth But Virgil s team have rescued some LOVs from their exile, and using themselves as hosts, study the effects The book opens as Virgil s team s misconduct is detected after a team member dies inexplicably Her connection to the LOVs is blamed, and Virgil ends up on the run Meanwhile, the LOVs in orbit, fearing for their survival, separate themselves from the rest of the ship and fall to earth, landing off the Vietnamese coast Ela Suvanatat, a freelance journalist, dives to investigate the crash site, not knowing the political and martial whirlwind her actions will unleash Limit of Vis

I ve been sitting on this review for a while Not sure what to say about this book The characters are a little murky, their motivations counter productive at best, and the entire thing seems to set up for a sequel that clearly never came But they are sympathetic, and striking, and unique, and even though politically morally i found myself rooting against them, I liked them enough as people to continue to support them.The book is about nanomachines, and trans humanism, and embracing the future I ve been sitting on this review for a while Not sure what to say about this book The characters are a little murky, their motivations counter productive at best, and the entire thing seems to set up for a sequel that clearly never came But they are sympathetic, and striking, and unique, and even though politically morally i found myself rooting against them, I liked them enough as people to continue to support them.The book is about nanomachines, and trans humanism, and embracing the future where technology and humanity are one Personally I find that future abjectly terrifying, but Nagata manages to present it in a warm way Towards the end, it gets a little plotty it showed us what could be a transformative, striking, unique world and of course it all boils down to some medical execu
This was an interesting concept and was fun for awhile But I failed to see how these little LOVs that were supposed to amplify human intelligence ever actually did None of the characters ever really did anything abnormally intelligent In fact, they seemed kind of resigned to fate most of the
