criticism

a Epos, which makes it not always easy for the reader by its jumping between the figures and action strands. History is slowly developed and populated with interesting characters, but developed the narrationitself still more slowly. Detailed descriptions of the virtual reality and the dreams and thoughts of the Protagonisten contribute not substantially to history. The Epos, in that topics such as immortality, the end of the world, virtual worlds and becoming extinct cultures a dramatic backgroundgive, comes only slowly into rolling. Despite the detail wealth most characters and their culture remain quite colorless. Many details for a long time described around then not to be no more used.

The German translation is very well written, language and word jokecorrespond to the original. Who cannot begin anything with the “Netboy” jargon of the young people of the future, is even debt.

The first volume, city of the golden shade, contains still more action portions in the reality and leaves themselves nearly to the classical ScienceFiction count. Volumes 2 to 4 contained in each case more action parts in the virtual worlds to save by which the heroes pierce themselves must, in order the material world.
