In the sixth decade of the twenty-first century, Earth has been transformed. Nanotechnology has been perfected, giving humans the ability to change their environment and themselves down to the cellular level. And the study of the mind has brought a revolution in human psychotherapy and artificial intelligence.

It's a sane and perfect world. Almost.

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - dbsovereign - LibraryThing

Bear's characters can suffer somewhat (for lack of depth) from the density of his plot, but this is a thought-provoking sci-fi novel. Nice to see "normal" people struggling with some of things Bear thinks we all may have to deal with very soon. Read full review

User Review  - Durval Menezes - Goodreads

I have read this book a long time ago (10 years or more) but I do remember something of it, so it must have been a more-or-less good book (therefore the 3-stars rating). Read full review
