So I first started reading this book as a video game for my Commodore 64 back in the 1980s It was a really cool kind of game an interactive novel You are the lone returning astronaut who finds that everyone on earth isgone All the remains are a few nodes or computer terminals that have precious little information but enough to keep you reading As you uncovered and traveled through the network new nodes noticed you and opened up new information It was a really fun game all cerebral and only text but it caught my attention I never finished it Then I discovered it had been updated and published as a paper book by Rob Swigart it s author So over 30 years later I finally finished the story of Peter Devore and the opening of the Portal This story is amazing to me Written in the days before the Internet and the Web this novel slyly imagines the technical advancement that was to come In this future world everyone is connected everyone is given a very specific personally tailored education Most people live underground and the surface of the Earth is green and thriving People can travel vast distances uickly and cheaply There are many good things about the new world but many bad ones too Swigart envisions people addicted to virtual experiences what I imagine isn t far from say being addicted to video gaming or the Internet There are people who have altered their own DNA so that they can do many different things including living in the cold of Antarctica His vision came before the advent of CRISPR technology Again and again I was reminded that the author was predicting things that would come to light and he did it fairly accurately many decades before it happened I don t usually give 5 star reviews and this book might not be his best work or the best sci fi that I had ever rad but it had the haunting uality of being uniue in my reading journey I hadn t read anything like it It deserves a new printing and perhaps a new video game adaptation as well Peter Devore connects with Wanda Sixlove a girl with a disease that disconnects her from the passage of time and recognizing her own face as she journeys in deep space in suspended animation Together they live in a world that seems to not have any clear sensibilities and change everything I wish I tell you If you want to read this book it s hard to find You might search for it s ebook online I have heard that it s out there if you know where to look
