Extraordinary and creative, full of ideas in a future world where little by little the old have extended their lifespan and control wealth and public policy. Our protagonist is one of these people, most of whom are women, and she takes a radical rejuvenation procedure. This makes her physically very young again as well as losing a lot of her personality and she falls in with young radicals bucking against the system ruled by the gerontocracy. Absolutely gorgeous at times, but also pretentious but overall highly recommended.… (mais)

Surprisingly prescient Sterling from 1988; at a time when cyberpunk was the rage, Sterling was actually guessing at the political effect of a networked world and the growth of pirate enclaves. Not as self-assured as Distraction ten years later, but (allowing for the 1980s trappings of video chat and faxes) not too different in flavour from the world of 2023 in which it's actually set.

I remember enjoying this when I read it back in the day. I get that it's a pioneer in the genre and everything but I was bored the second time around.
