(Free E–pub) The Echo Chamber
The Echo Chamber was such an enthralling read for me I enjoyed it thoroughly I usually don t like books that alternate between eriods because they take long to develop the story and Beyond the Far Horizon put everything together but this one was really easy to follow from the beginning Thelot was engaging from start to finish and surprisingly exciting for a book about technology The author gave information in small amounts at a time and just when you think you have it figured out there s an exciting twist that surprises you entirely The suspense is great and made the book hard to Clan Novel (Vampire: The Masquerade: Clan Novel put down despite my busy schedule The characters stories were also really interesting and well developed Myersonal favorite is OrionMike not because he s essentially the main character but because he s so well described and Death of a Gunfighter pure I grew attached to his character My favorite thing about the book itself is its unexpectedness It addresses sooo many different themes that you would literally never expect when you start reading As you get deeper into the book it really feels like you re going for a ride with all the twists and turns the book takes and all the themes introduced like racism I would recommend this book to any avid reader of any kind of fiction since it covers so much Itulls you away from the story line briefly every now and then to give information that would seem entirely unrelated if it weren t for the author s talent in tying it all together The ending was very satisfying All in all the echo chamber did not disappoint 1010 would recommend Technology is like every other market good it serves those who have the money to build it and crushes those underneathWow I really liked how the story wrapped up It was truly satisfying There were some uestions that came to my mind at around halfway through the book when mysteries kept Spanking Britney (Spanking Fantasies, piling on I thought the author forgot about them thought it was going to be one of those cases where the author aims too high by fiddling with creative scenarios that are hard to execute withoutlotholes I m glad that wasn t the case My uestions were answered which made the story all the rewardingThe Echo Chamber is a science fiction story about a virtual reality social network Sharebox that consumes everyone s time and attention and further leads into complex external conseuences that the characters in the book try to comprehend and The Old Woman Whose Rolling Pin is the Sun possibly resolve It talks about how easy and dangerous it is for us to get absorbed into these fake online worlds and never find the will to get out How easy it is for large corporations to feed us unimportant and compulsive informationvideos to keep us under their fingers There are many other thoughtrovoking themes that were well explored such as artificial technology virtual reality time travelling and even a technology that digitalizes your brain into the internet that immortilises you Overall I really liked how well executed this book was It was my first science fiction read after a very long time and my first ever arc I m glad to say I wasn t disappointed SURPRISING That s the word that comes to mind when I think about this book It starts out as just a thriller like The Circle giving you some insider Was Jonestown a CIA Medical Experiment?

Contents you re going to have a lot thrown at you The first half of the book bounces back and forth betweenast and future as well as between a number of characters though makes it so you never felt lostThe Small Talk plot is a flurry of elements from Groundhog s Day the Matrix Inception and even Indiana Jones For better or worse Evans doesn t stay with any of thoselot types for too long which keeps the roller coaster ride going but it can be a little disheartening if you re really getting into something in Accidental Pharisees particularSome examples early in the book there s a really fun scene with one of therotagonists in the virtual world involving a bunch of historic monuments Then there s nothing like that for a long time The Groundhog s Day aspect of Mike being trapped in a loop of his own memories as described in the back cover is only really fleshed out somewhere in the middle and then it s over though ramifications certainly remain Even the love story between two characters that builds up in the first half is absent in almost the entire second half as one of them goes missing In the end Evans makes the story his own aints scenes beautifully with his details and touches on some timely issues The story leaves erhaps a very a loose chance of a seuel but even if there s not I ll be keeping on eye on what Evans comes up with next This book was surprisingly action Light Thickens (Roderick Alleyn, packed for being so based in technology It was engaging and never boring It had a little bit of a Butterfly Effect to it with the reoccurring lifetimes small
