It often seems that there is nothing new in the world of Sci-Fi. Certainly the basic plot elements in the' www:' series (Wake, Watch...#3 in 2011) have been around forever. But Sawyer simply does it BETTER than just about any Grand Master in the annals of SF. The classic Artificial Intelligence scenario is brought firmly into the 21st century with Sawyer's profound grasp of the latest technology, philosophy,physiology,sociology, mathematics, ethics, and a host of other aspects of human knowledge, wisdom and nonsense. I have one minor quibble (the only one in all his works): having a 16 year old girl with very limited life experience explain complex ethical issues to a vast AI seems a bit odd, even if her IQ is 200. but it is VERY minor. As always, his character's seem real enough to touch (holodeck anyone?) and he brings his own brilliant plot twists to the classic themes. Hopefully Sawyer will be around long enough that we can keep his brain alive until at least 3000.

Watch is the second book in the WWW trilogy and really sets the pace for the third book. Robert J. Sawyer answered some questions from the first book, introduced new ones and moves the whole story into a more intense plot. I look forward with great anticipation to the third book, Wonder, due out next spring.

The WWW series was interesting. What first caught my eye was the cover of Wake. Something told me I just wanted that book. I hadn't read a book in nearly ten year, but Wake was so interesting, I had to keep reading. Watch was better than Wake, but you had to read Wake in order to understand what's going on. The final book, Wonder, probably should have been left out.
