I was sent a newer copy of this book so yes this is a book I reviewed before. Things went a lot better this time since it wasn't a ball of confusion like last time. I don't read a ton of post apocalyptic books but one thing I've noticed is that things tend to go back in time minus the technology while this one did the opposite.
The creepy thing about this book is that it doesn't seem so far fetched. It does make me wonder if something as simple as a bee going extinct would cause all this havoc on the world. Yes I'll admit that I'm not really a fan of bees. I've been lucky in avoiding getting stung by one but I did have a few close calls.
This book takes place in the future which is near the end of this century so it isn't too far off. Things aren't too different except people are even more entangled with technology. Nirvana is like a holodeck which allows people to experience things that feel real but aren't real. I have to admit that virtual reality does sound appealing but when you think about it for a bit it can also be super creepy. Kender's is desperate to find out what happened to her fiance Andrew. She doesn't know who she can trust. It is a pretty good story with a really interesting concept and some great characters. Okay I confess I got a little happy when something happened to a certain character who shall remain nameless.
