Not a terrible book. But not a terribly good one either.
The language is a fair imitation of the original, and some of the book is brilliant. Unfortunately the last third of the book bogs down in the mire of philosophical speculation, physics mayhem, and general tedium.
The attempt is to describe the transhuman, and it fails. The up side of this is that the reach of this book most certainly exceeds its grasp. There is much that is entertaining, and much fascinating, but the book ultimately fails in its final stages, failing to make a statement about humanity, the characters, the situation, the story, or anything at all.

The other reviews agree with my opinion of the book, so no needfor me to rehash. However, for those who wish to pursue books in thisvein, consider the book MORLOCK NIGHT by K.W.Jeter (yes, he also wrote sequel books to Bladerunner).

I thought it got a bit long-winded in the middle, and was a bit techy for a Dick winner, but in all, a clever, enjoying read.
