As far as I'm concerned there are two types of SciFi in this world: the kind that gently explains all the new words and concepts to you, and the kind that just throws you in and forces you to figure it out as you read. Counting Heads is definatley one of the latter, and boy is it worth figuring out what the hell is going on.
I read a lot of SciFi (probably too much) and I can't recall the last time I was so obsessed with finishing a book. The story is far too complicated to explain to you (and that's half the fun of read the book) but if you're into clones, corporate espionage, and nanobots you should pick up a copy of this book.
I'm a sucker for new, shiny things.
On an unrelated note, I just created a new Typepad blog called Tweet. Why? TypePad created a new theme called Pico that is aimed at 'microblogging' (that's the new, trendy word for moblogging, or posting pictures, videos, and links with little commentary to go along with them).
Since I often clutter up Blankbaby with random pictures from my iPhone I thought it might be nice to post those in one place (which automatically posts them to Twitter, hence the title of the blog).
I'm not sure how long this blog will last, but I pay for the pro account level at TypePad so I can create as many blogs as I like here so I figure why the heck not.
