"Nobody around here reads anymore. Why bother, when you can just use a mindprobe needle and shoot all the images and excitement straight into your brain? I've heard of books, but they were long before I was born, in the backtimes before the Big Shake, when everything supposedly was perfect, and everybody lived rich. Personally, I doubt the backtimes ever existed. It's like a story you tell to make yourself feel better. As if having a past makes the future somehow worth believing in. In real life, nobody comes to your rescue. Believe me, I know. But then I met Ryter, this old gummy who had a lot of crazy ideas. Together we tried to change the world..."

One of my favorite books . . . I got this one for my students!!!
It's a great futuristic story, but not so far-fetched in taoday's technology-saturated society.

This was a very interesting look at what the future may hold and what it would be like if we did not have all the books available to us that we take for granted.

This is an ARC copy and although I'm not the first owner, I believe I'm the first reader. Excellent shape.

Neat concept for the book; it's worth the easy and fast read.
