Quarantine Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
It's late in the 21st century and bioengineering is now so common that people are able to modify their minds in any way they wish. It is an era which has been shaped by information systems so vast that security, in any form, is easily breached. Now you can be whatever you want to be, and do whatever you want to do. On Earth anyway.
One night, thirty three years ago, the stars went out. 'The Bubble' - a perfect sphere centred on the sun - appeared in the sky, isolating the solar system from the rest of the universe. For thirty-three years, humanity has lived with the religious cults and terrorism which spawned in the wake of the darkness.
We are now alone. Humanity has been cut off. Quarantined.

This is kind of novel I wish I wrote; a detective noir cyberpunk novel, dealing with quantum mechanics.
Saying too much about the plot would be giving a lot of the fun away, so this is going to be a very hand wavey review.
The characters are well drawn, 3 dimensional people with drives, that live and breathe. There are a bunch of central mysteries that are explored throughout, and it is mostly surprising. And funny. Everything is linked, and everything is revealed.
It is a great book, exploring some deep philosophical ideas, all wrapped up in a detective story - enjoyable, clever and witty.
An exploration of the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics and what it means for the self if we can modify the functioning of our own brains.
