Wake

by Robert J Sawyer

Penguin Group Canada | April 14, 2009 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review

Caitlin Decter is a typical teen-smart, pretty, and wired ... but she's also blind. She undergoes an experimental procedure to regain her sight and the results are unexpected. She "sees" but not just the way we do-for her the world wide web is a riot of colours and shapes, its own dimension. While exploring it, she finds an "other" lurking there-and it finds her, seeing what she's seeing and learning as she learns. But that's not where it ends ...

Editorial Reviews

"Almost alone among Canadian writers, he tackles the most fundamental questions of who we are and where we might be going - while illuminating where we are now."
-National Post

"Wildly thought-provoking….The thematic diversity-and profundity-makes [WAKE] one of Sawyer's strongest works to date."
-Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review

"Sawyer continues to push the boundaries with his stories of the future made credible. His erudition, eclecticism, and masterly storytelling make this trilogy opener a choice selection."
-Library Journal

"WAKE is, in the words of its heroine, made out of awesome."
-McNally Robinson Bookseller review

"Sawyer's take on theories about the origin of consciousness, generated within the framework of an engaging story, is fascinating, and his approach to machine consciousness and the Internet is surprisingly fresh."
-Booklist

"Emotionally satisfying and intellectually stimulating. Along with William Gibson's NEUROMANCER and Neal Stephenson's SNOW CRASH, WAKE presents a unique perspective on information technology. I eagerly await its sequels."
-SFFaudio
