Overview

"Rare Storytelling...demands to be read at one sitting." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Nobody does it better than Niven and Pournelle." -Tom Clancy

"Exciting, swift and suspenseful." - Theodore Sturgeon

In a dystopian future, where pollution and violence overrun Los Angeles streets, a Utopia flourishes. Todos Santos is thousand-foot-high arcology; a single-structured city that rises above the festering skyscrapers to offer its privileged residents the perfect blend of technology and security in exchange for their oath of allegiance and vigilance.

But is this orderly city elevating humanity, or shackling it? There are those who feel the constant video surveillance oppressive, rather than inclusive, or that the city is monopolizing hard-earned resources, and taking money away from the poorer Angelinos.

Connected through neural implants to MILLIE - the AI that runs all of Todos Santos' systems - Art Bonner and Barbara Churchwood work with a team of dedicated staff to protect the city against the FROMATEs ("Friends of Man and the Earth"), who are a group of anti-technology zealots dedicated to destroying everything they have built. When three youths break into the city, to see if they can exploit its weaknesses, the repercussions of their actions threaten to bring one of humanities most ambitious projects to its knees....

The paper copy is great but this copy is unreadable

Clearly nobody at Barnes and Noble even tried opening this on a nook. Its impossible to read. I tried every combination of fonts from tiny to huge and margin settings. Exceedingly poor QA, its very clear NOBODY tried opening this on a nook, or the nook app for Android OR the Nook app for PC's. I still tried reading a few pages, and the tiny part I could make out was compelling. Selling this as broken as it is shows a total lack of any quality control. Terrible disservice to the Authors too.

I can't speak to the quality of the writting because it' s impossible to read. The whole right hand side of the page is cut off. Waste of $$.

Its hard to say anything about this book. I remember it only vaguely, which means it isn't in the Top 100, but it isn't memorable for being awful, either. This is another Nivens and Pournelle collaboration about the near future, and a bleak one, at that.
