Conhecimento Comum



Very fun. The pace and snappy dialog and discourse was fun. The story was good, complex but logical. Very enjoyable novel to read. Fun.

Nick Harkaway is a master of painting zany inside a deep meaningful novel. A truly unique experience and one of the few books that might actually read completely different upon a reread (which I will do someday). I loved the humor. I loved the characters and I loved the story. Read this story and let it take you in completely unexpected directions. Just when you think you have a grasp on where it is heading he hits you with a mallet.

Loved this book. Funny and full of action. A great heroes journey. The best thing of all is I never knew where it was going next.

Titans are a group (mostly family) of post-humans who have had their lives extended (some voluntarily, some involuntarily) by a procedure that rejuvenates their bodies by causing them to re-grow. So they become physically bigger and stronger, but also suffer partial memory loss. Titans can live effectively forever by repeating the process. The more times the procedure, the more the effects accumulate. They have become a separate incredibly wealthy elite, mostly untouchable by human rules and morality, physically untouchable, ethically and mentally distant.

A titan is murdered (unheard of!) and so enter Cal Saunders, a private eye specializing in cleaning up messes involving titans. He has to pick his way through the internal politics and machinations of the titans w/o getting himself killed. And, true to the noir genre dealing with an ex who is now a titan.

It is a pretty straight-forward power-family internal politics murder mystery given an SF flavor by throwing in the T7 process that creates titans from humans.
