A distant moon base crew of four have settled within a protective eco bubble on an icy satellite, orbiting a gas giant at the edge of the solar system Its inhabitants, too far from Earth, have been separated from the World Ear, an advanced electronic network that connects the Earth s population by surgically implanted receivers No longer now are they part of a hive mind of knowledge, shared experience and ideas, but isolated and alone in their thoughts, forced to revert back to using speech as their prime means of communication.The new crew member and central character, Paul Munroe, is finding it difficult to adapt to his newly discovered independence and is frustrated, arrogant, emotionally adolescent and lacking in social skills The author could have run the story aground creating such an unple Very very intriguing concept A man gets disconnected from a 24 7 live feed via special contact lenses and an implant of an upgraded version of the internet facebook twitter to go live on a space station far out in space I loved the wa Very interesting, very different Eery, scientific, technical and definitely other wordly It was quite stark and bleak I stopped reading it and only finished it about 6 months later But looking back on it, I remember just being transported to this new, crazily different and out there place It was like nothing I ve read before John did nothing to Cerebral science fiction at its best Great to see a novel with real science written so engagingly, with real heart, and without trying too hard. WE is another book that I recently received and, with a quick look at the lovely cover and interesting blurb, I wanted to read pretty much right away With the synopsis vague enough not to spoil the story, it raised my interest and made me wonder just how John Dickinson was going to approach a subject such as this separation and isolation within the solar system The first thing that struck me was the writing and how effortlessly he pulled me into a story that is much than it first appears.Paul Munro is separated from the World Ear, the one thing that almost all the population of Earth now use to communicate It can allow instant discussion and interaction while providing a platform to have feedback and opinions at a mere thought Once this has been removed, Paul feels very lonely and had to adjust to life with what feels like inferior and slower interaction However, he has done this for a reason and soon embarks on an eight year frozen voyage across the solar system to his new home where he will take up the position of communications officer on an ice moon where only four humans live, and the World Ear is a distant memory.On this moon he lives with three others Lewis, Van and May and must be a vital part of the team that keeps the moon in operation He must deal with the loss of the Wo From my blog review on Cybermage.seWhat s chilly about WE is the future it paints The Story We are the only Humans left In the furthest, coldest, darkest reaches of our solar system, Paul Munro is on a mission from which he can never return A desolate ice covered moon will be his home for the rest of his life And only from here can he see what humanity has become.A thriller to freeze your blood To absolute zero. I bought this after reading Mark Chitty s excellent review link below and it lived up to my expectations This is one of the best science fiction books i have read in a long time.Earth is a world where everyone is online, all the time, with brain implants that assist them in everything they do Every decision they make is habitually done by asking the net for advise And no one living in the wired society reflects over the situation They never knew anything else.It takes an eight year trip to an icy moon around Jupiter and four humans alone, cut off from Earth to rediscover what it means to be human This is a recurring theme of our times not for the first time in history , what it means to be human, there is even a British TV show called Being human from a fantasy perspective There are many issues with technologies and life sciences today and in the near future that can hold a Damocles Sword of Change over our heads, but I never suspected Social Media of being one of them I understand now that I was wrong, it do have the potential.But there is than one terrifyi
