“…an intriguing glimpse into a near future where everything relies on IT, including people’s thoughts, especially when their minds can be ‘augmented.’ Who needs to make up a story when a computer will do it for you?

Add to this a mysterious illness that’s cruelly threatening the lives of older people, and Kalman has trapped me in her storytelling web.”
