Description

"A non-stop, furiously paced story." -- Robert Charles Wilson, award-winning author A nuanced story about artificial intelligence and digital immortality, Freenet plunges readers into the far future, when humans have closed distances in time and space through wormhole tunnels between interplanetary colonies. Consciousness has been digitized and cybersouls uploaded to a near-omniscient data matrix in a world where information is currency and the truth belongs to whoever has the greatest bandwidth. When Simara Ying crash-lands on the desert planet Bali, she finds herself trapped in a cave-dwelling culture with no social network for support. Her rescuer, Zen Valda, is yanked into a new universe of complications he can scarcely grasp and into an infinite network of data he never knew existed. When brash V-net anchorman Roni Hendrik starts investigating how Simara became the subject of an interplanetary manhunt, he finds a dangerous emergence in the network that threatens all human life. Freenet is an exciting new novel about the power of information, as well as the strength of love, in a post-digital age.show more

A great read, as well as a unique idea if you re really into the science fiction genre. You might enjoy it if you liked "1984," "Brave New World," etc. Nimrod Street "Freenet" is a non-stop, furiously paced story that takes the reader on a fascinating journey from deep space to artificial intelligence to the primordial history of the human species.
