    I'm still on board with the core concept that launched the series but the book has left me unsure of what it is that it's trying to say at this point, if anything. The basics are all here and it's mostly that corporations suck, but that's been the stock in trade for science fiction going back to the 1940s so there isn't anything new there. The “twist” toward the end that Carolina runs into is one that has you questioning what we learned early on and how so much of all this has worked for as many years as it has and you have to imagine that it might not hold up to more intense scrutiny to figure it out. It's still fun in a kind of wonky anything-goes way – what with a vehicle that looks like the cyber truck spiraling across Mars – but it doesn't keep you engaged for the long haul. Read Full Review
