Book Review: Lincoln Child's Utopia
Topic: Recreation 9:01 pm EST, Mar 15, 2004

I just finished Utopia by Lincoln Child. If you don't know who he is, you are missing out. He along with Douglas Preston, has written some of the best Technologic Fiction I've ever read. Some include Relic, Thunderhead, Cabinet of Curiosities, and RipTide. Topics of their books include Incan civilizations, radical anthropology, pirate treasure with booby traps, high atomic number elemental astroids, awesome FBI agents and much more. If you haven't read any of their work, start with Relic and enjoy.

Utopia is about an amusement park for the future, with giant holograms, massive sets and robotic creatures that populate 4 total emersion "worlds" that people visit. It dabbles sucessfully in all kinds of things memestreams would love: hive intellegence, AI, Robotics, hacking, blowing stuff up, lasers, and more. The basis of the story isn't all that new (terrorist/criminals-take-over-something-cool-and-heros-try-to-stop -them) the book is extremely well written. Child gets the Tech more accurate the most writers (The worst I've seen was The Blue Nowhere) while crafting an interesting story. You can get it in paperback at most bookstores
