    One thought on “Light Music”

    1. If an author has gone to the effort to sit down and write a book, probably involving some or all of the following: blood, sweat tears and probably some alcohol, and produced a piece of work that they are proud of it doesn’t seem fair to slate a book because you don’t like it. This is why I not a fan of snarky reviews. In the case of this book, Light Music, I really couldn’t get along with it. It might have been me, but reading the few reviews that are out there makes me think I am not alon [...]

    2. [3 and 1/2 stars]Another one of Goonan's characteristically fascinating novels.

    3. Nanotech has transformed the world, for the better in some cases, for the worse in others.

    4. If you light possible tetchy apopalistic future type books, then you might like this series. It's a bit disjointed like the others in the series (each could be read alone). If not, this would not be an enjoyable read.

    5. I enjoyed the entire series, and would have rated them more highly if they had been more tightly edited. Goonan's vision is SO comprehensive, and she wants to express it ALL.
