I've been following this series since its inception, and having read the first book I was interested to see where the author would take both the personal story of Nash (my favourite trainwreck of a human being) and how the larger narrative arc of his journey would take shape. I was not disappointed!
Picking up the thread directly where The Korpes File left off, the reader is once again thrust into a world of political intrigue, shading business dealings, and one man's war against the system that keeps it all tenuously in place. It doesn't pull any punches - and I was continually surprised by how the story played out.
The perfect mix of classic dystopian science fiction and corporate thriller. Highly recommended! (Although definitely start with book 1 - which I maintain is *marginally* better!)
A brilliant follow up to The Korpse File, The Korpse Agenda expands on the lives of familiar characters and introduces new people to the narrative. We find out more about Nash, his situation, and his motivation for what he is driven to do because of inescapable stressors. J. I. Rogers has developed in-depth, detailed characterizations of the people in her books, and a comprehensive, believable world for Nash and company to occupy. A must read series!
he Korpes Agenda is an epic story of future humanity. Reminds me of the Golden Age of science fiction stories. Authors like Asimov and Clarke covered wide sweeping panoramas of future worlds. In Rogers' story, we learn about conspiracies, rich powerful individuals with dark dreams, and individuals trying to live and love.
This vast sprawling tale is tied together by a focus on Nash Korpes. Nash is a deeply flawed human whom I cared about and anxiously agonized over. Each life event for Nash is a challenge for him, his friends, and his enemies. As a brilliant scientist, he brings an almost unstoppable power into his struggle for survival and justice after he and his loved ones were wronged by the rich and entitled rulers of his world.
This epic has more elements than can be listed in a short review. You will likely enjoy this read if you want to read science fiction that has new technology. You will read about the interactions of different groups and species. It contains power struggles between powerful individuals, groups, and the not so powerful. I would recommend reading the first book first. This second book deals with mostly new topics, but the background of Nash and this society of the future is helpful. If you enjoy science fiction with epic scope and interesting characters you should read this book. I recommend it, and look forward to reading the next one.
Much anticipated after the first book in the series, this second book definitely didn't disappoint! I'd already become hugely attached to the fabulous, yet flawed protagonist, Nash X Korpes and as his further adventures unfold, we follow him in a deeper, darker roller coaster of plot and sub-plots. There is a whole lot more in this second volume. A much richer and more complex story which builds on some of the earlier intrigue and sets up further questions and avenues which no doubt will be explored in a future volume of Nash's story. I'm already looking forward to it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found myself invested in the characters and as a result really struggled to put it down. I loved visualizing the world the author created and could almost picture myself living there. It's a vast world and you are made very aware that there is a lot happening behind the scenes, it kept wanting to learn more. I'd really recommend this book so any sci-fi readers.
