the quantum thief and the others
a couple of years ago I have stumbled upon a very positive review of "The Quantum Thief" by Hannu Rajaniemi. I have immediately obtained the book and read it with great pleasure. In fact I have enjoyed it so much that over these two years I have re-read it three more times. The last one was because I have finally came up with an idea to check out the other works of the author and found two more new books from the series.
I can only dream now about various molecular and quantum technologies when I read science bloggers speculating about these in the news. The more interesting was for me to "see them in action", where they shape the plot and make the story even more captivating. Though if you don't care about such things, I guess it would be just techno-magic for you.
so I cannot recommend enough to all the sci-fi fans the series by Hannu Rajaniemi: «The Quantum Thief», «The Fractal Prince» and «The Causal Angel». I think all these are available as e-books everywhere.
