Rollback

I finished Robert J. Sawyer‘s serialized novel Rollback earlier this evening and it was terrific. Although I complained about the wait between each part of the story, it turned out to be totally worth the wait. This was a good science fiction story. In some ways, it reminded me of Isaac Asimov’s fiction, for instance, in the optimism of the story. There were strong characters, flawed, and real. And there is a hopefulness to Sawyer’s view of the future that is a breath of fresh air. If you are a fan of Sawyer’s books, this one is a treat. If you’ve never read his stuff before, I’d definitely recommend this one. According to his website the hardcover edition of Rollback is due out in April 2007 by TOR books.
