    Read Vast AUTHOR Linda Nagata EBOOK DOWNLOAD Vast AUTHOR Linda Nagata The experience of reading Vast provides a proof of theory the theory being that reading the middle book out of a series of science fiction books will not result in an enjoyable experience About a third of the content in Vast must hopefully rely on the content of the two previous books The characters are sketchy they make references to past experiences that are vaguely explained and the plot seemed to appear fully formed out of nothing Neve

This won t be so much a review as it is a ruminationThe science fiction genre has been a fertile breeding ground for a number of tropes but the commonest refrain is How much can human beings change and still be recognized as human In this book we see humans adapted for vacuum covered in scales with long prehensile fingers and toes an organ called a kisheer that helps them breathe in space and lenses that cover their eyes We see humans created in artificial wombs woven together from artificially merged zygotes We see humans with a new mental structure called an atrium which allows them to make insubstantial pattern copies of themselves these are referred to in the book as ghosts which can later be incarnated allowing for functional immortality and allowing their physical bodies to die over and over again We see humans who can edit their emotions purge their fears with drugs repair their bodies with nanobots called Makers We see humans who adapt alien neural organs adding them to their own tissues We see humans whose ghosts spread through and live within machines as the souls of huge organic spaceships only occasionally manifesting as physical beings The most recognizably human character both in physical nature and in motivation is Lot a half human half alien being who exudes emotional substances called charismata that can affect the people around him infected by an alien virus that motivates him to spread the cult of communion to others At what point do these changes cease to be human and move into the realm of metahumanity It s not easy to determine a precise point but when humans have changed so much that they can merge with alien technology or when they are physically changed by alien beings into some new form that threshold has certainly been crossed

while that s or less true of the other books this one s a little different It follows characters from the previous book directly and without the context of their earlier lives a lot of this book might be difficult to follow Then again this book is probably going to be difficult to follow anyway for all but the most hardcore SF readers There s wild out there concepts like communication via chemical signals philosopher cells that render decision through argument viruses that promote cult behavior atrium organs that allow you to keep copies of other people in your head and many and it s tough to keep all the rules for these in your head at once So it might be true to say that this one can be read independently but only because if you ve already got it in you to tackle all these concepts not having the complete backstory isn t that much of an additional barrier Still I think it helps a lot to know what s going on This isn t the kind of book most people can just dive into even with the context it may be a difficult readIndeed while I liked it a lot of the time I admit I had only a limited idea of what was going on and was reading mostly for tantalizing technological speculation of the far future The characters didn t entirely connect mostly because they were too different from what I can relate to and when they weren t engaged in an urgent battle for survival some of their motivations seemed a little obscure as did I m afraid any romantic pairings although a large part of that may have been because I really couldn t remember the connections or arrangements they had from the last bookThis book in particular has been listed as an influence on Alastair Reynolds who read it and thought highly of it before writing his Revelation Space series and you can see some of the legacy a few similar ideas not theft by any means but playing with a few of the same concepts and feel That seems to have unfortunately been a running theme of Nagata s career being right at the forefront of a new trend or idea in SF relatively unnoticed by mainstream readers but uietly influential all the same a strong voice of hard SF that doesn t seem to be listened to as much as she deserves I enjoyed the book maybe on the low end of the scale because I think the ideas may have ran away with her a little at the expense of compelling story and characters this time around but it really makes me crave her return to farther future speculation If she could somehow blend this talent for far out SF ideas with the personal character work she displayed in her Red trilogy I think she
