Like another reviewer, I keep hoping for something from her that knocks me out the way Lani Garver did...but nothing has. :-(

The summary didn't really catch my attention but as a fan of some of the author's other books ("What Happened to Lani Garver", "The Body of Christopher Creed" and "Following Christopher Creed"), I thought I'd give it a go anyway.
It was an enjoyable read, not quite to the same level as the others-- which are some of my favourite books-- but I was glad to have given it the chance.

A good story that fills out in a full epic that is believable and unbelievable at the same time. I think I liked the sequel better though.

Streams of Babel starts out well. The first half of the book is paranoid and dark, and has a tone similar to an episode of the X-Files. However, near the middle of the book, the focus shifts from the main characters of the first half to a minor character, who lives in a different part of the world, and another character is introduced. The Paranoia disappears, and everything begins to fall into place too easily.

"...I was introduced to some phrasing that has become central to my very existence: 'Computers have blurred the line between child and adult, because in the land of computers, children are the men, and the men are the children."'
