Wireheads, Addicted To An Electric Current Fed Into The Pleasure Centers Of The Brain, Are The New Junkies Karen, A Former Wirehead Who Barely Escaped Death By Pleasure, Is Determined To Bring Down Those Who Sell The Wireheading Equipment, But She And Her Lover Joe Instead Turn Up Evidence Of A Shadowy Global Conspiracy Not To Control The World, But To Keep Anyone From Realizing That The Masters Of Mind Control Have Been Controlling Us All For Some Time Now An early cyberpunkish novel that had a good concept, if nothing I hadn t heard before people connecting wires into their heads for the latest fix, mind and memory manipulation, a dystopian future.The story s divided up into two time periods, but the story of each mirrors each the other so perfectly that, by the time the big shocking reveal comes about, you already can guess what it s going to be Still, it was a quick read, and well written.One thing I always like about Spider Robinson novels An early cyberpunkish novel that had a good concept, if nothing I hadn t heard before people connecting wires into their heads for the latest fix, mind and memory manipulation, a dystopian future.The story s divided up into two time periods, but Very confusing Amazing Horrible And I really don t get the ending Must be best book ever then Only one part was obvious but mostly works For the time of publication it must have been very edgy. I am so confused by this book.Would I recommend Yes and no If you like fun quirky reads that deal with interesting adult themes with fun characters, then yes Just be aware that the ending is really awful If you can get past that though, it s a really enjoyable experience.My Experience The beginning drops you straight into the world leaving you lost but interested enough to continue I was very skeptical though as the book progressed I really fell in love The characters weren t very developed I am so confused by this book.Would I recommend Yes and no If you like fun quirky reads that deal with interestin Awkward, self conscious writing Was way better the first time I read it and I needn t have shelved it for a second reading 20 years later. I love the thrillers of Spider Robinson But I also love DD, noise music and rare pre WWII cars which gives me a sixth sense, the geek sense When you ve tried to share your latest obsession with a non geek and you get a blank stare or even outright hostility that sense becomes almost a survival instinct.I could recommend Mindkiller because of a brilliant story, interesting characters or a satisfying ending I could recommended it because like the best sci fi it raises issues of the future I love the thrillers of Spider Robinson But I also love DD, noise music and rare pre WWII cars which gives me a sixth sense, the geek sense When you ve tried to share your latest obsession with a non geek and you get a blank stare or even outright hostility that sense becomes almost a survival instinct.I could recommend Mindkiller because of a brilliant story, interesting characters or a satisfying ending I could recommended it because like the best sci fi it raises issues of the future intersection of technology and morality, but my sixth sense tells me to slow down and warn the potential reader So, here it goes Mindkiller, like all of Spider Robinson s books, has a geek scent about it Not pervasive funk, but a scent I think Mr Robinson, like me, is in to some pretty obscure areas of human endeavor, rare jazz, specialized fields of science and math and all kinds oftrivial areas of art, history and This book is deftly put together until just about the very end I found the two plot threads equally compelling, which is a tough trick to pull off The characters are each highly damaged but interesting people, and I enjoyed watching their interactions with those around them Norman is an alienated, depressed professor Joe haswell, I don t want to spoil anything, so we ll say an unusual job and some evenunusual problems Both have been withdrawing from the world, and each is pulled ba This book is deftly put together until just about the very end I found the two plot threads equally compelling, which is a tough trick to pull off The characters are each highly damaged but interesting people, and I enjoyed watching their interactions with those around them Norman is an alienated, depressed professor Joe haswell, I don t want to spoil anything, so we ll say an unusual job and some evenunusual problems Both have been withdrawing from the world, and each is pulled back in by a crusade Norman wants to find his missing sister Joe is a reluctant white knight protecting a woman on a mission to destroy the companies whose addictive wireheading nearly killed her There are a couple of real surprises here, one of which I managed to guess and then the author succeeded in lulling me back into disbelief before plausibly revealing how he had accomplished the trick It I read the middle book of this trilogy, Time Pressure, without knowing that it was a trilogy The three books were written many years apart, and the other two were okay, but I didn t like them as much as the middle one This one was better than the third one, and as I read through it I realized that I had read it before, perhaps some time ago When I started reading it I remembered this one scene that involves the selling of rare jazz records, and as I continued to read I realized that the scene I read the middle book of this trilogy, Time Pressure, without knowing that it was a trilogy The three books were written many years apart, and the other two were okay, but I didn t like them as much as the middle one This one was better than the third one, and as I read through it I realized that I had read it before, perhaps some time ago When I started reading it I remembered this one scene that involves the selling of rare jazz records, and as I continued to read I realized that the scene was gettingandlikely to happen, and then it did happen This book does one of the things that I kind of don t care for in writing, switching between different characters times in each chapter and then gradually bringing them together It s actually done brilliantly and with a s
