tossed abandoned building, she tries to save him and fails, but discovers the man was incredibly rich and it s entangled her in a complicated situation.I don t have a whole lot to say about this book It s mildly enjoyable, has a few interesting ideas, and a few annoying quirks that you might like or dislikethan me Chief among them is, whenever she s piloting one of her creatures, the pronounces change to something like I He So you get huge chunks like I He walked up to the room and grabbed the thing in my his hands I get what the author was going for, but it got to be a little tiresome Similarly, calling the TV with some internet capabilities Jellovision wore thin pretty quickly.The ebook version I read contained an introduction from another author talking about how the book, written in the 90s, doesn t feel dated at all that s a little overblown, and particularly how the Internet is described falls into that category The funny thing is, thats kind of par for the course with older books, and I wouldn t have mentioned it at all if not for the introduction, which got my hopes up and so while certainly well intended praise, wound up being counterproductive.Still, while the story wasn t huge, it was entertaining enough with a few well drawn characters As I understand it, the author wrote another book in the same universe, and I might check it out as I ve read later works by the same author that show a good deal of growth , I m just not blown away I got it as part of a bundle of ebooks and I don t feel like I wasted whatever portion of the money that particular book cost me I picked up this slim paperback at a 2nd hand book shop, mainly because on the back of the jacket there s a quote from George RR Martin saying that Laura Mixon was going to be one of the stars of the 90s Well, Martin overshot it a bit, but the book was entertaining Described as a cyberpunk story, it takes us on an action packed ride with Ruby as she pilots her robots remotely from her apartment in a futuristic globally warmed Queens, New York Ruby finds herself at an ethical crossroads aft I picked up this slim paperback at a 2nd hand book shop, mainly because on the back of the

after having stolen something from a dead guy, and the attempt to fix it takes her on a dangerous journey As far as character development, Mixon does a pretty good job introducing us to Ruby, her room mate Melissa, and quite a few other important players Since I m fairly new to SF and cyberpunk themes, i was unfamiliar with a lot of the terms, such as waldos the robots remotely piloted I was also thinking that a bit of world building with regards to the state of the world and how it got that way would have made the story muchengaging for me In the end Ruby faces down mortal danger, saves somebody s life and makes right what she did wrong A fast, fun read No one could say that this book is gracefully written how did the author think it was a good idea to describe the response to an
