Review of Nexus (Nexus, #1)

Ramez Naam
Rating: 3/5

The first third of this book is spectacular; it promises to weave together interesting technology, psychedelia, theory of mind, and the life of a grad student into one coherent package. And then it turns into Tom Clancy shlock and never comes back to any of those themes. It's a shame how much wasted opportunity I found in this book.
