Book #63: Neal Asher, Gridlinked

Over the holidays, I picked up Neal Asher’s “Gridlinked”. The story combines a criminal mystery, espionage, and science fiction into a fairly dark tale. It was reasonably enjoyable, but lacking in the density of new ideas and substance I’ve come to love from authors like Stross, MacLeod, or Greg Egan. Gridlinked was a fun read but I’m not yet running out to pick up more of Asher’s writing. Perhaps that’s unfair, and I’ll undoubtedly give him another shot soon, but there’s more books to finish first.
