As we go into release week for Lock In, a quick look at some reviews of the book from the last several days, all positive (hooray!):
“[T]here must be magic (defined here as a combination of skill, vision and intuition) behind Scalzi’s talent for turning out one compulsively readable book after another. Reading his novels is like watching the finest episodes of your favorite sci-fi series, with provocative ideas, high-stakes conflicts, gripping action scenes and a leavening touch of humor.”
Austin American-Statesman (registration required):
“Lock In actually works best as a smart novel about the future of disability, about the moment when those whose physical bodies have failed them have the chance to become human-plus and the jealousy and resentment that could engender in everyone else.”
“Witty banter between Shane and partner keep the novel from becoming too philosophical while exploring what it means to live a virtual existence.”
“Lock In is a fast and thrilling read, with plenty of character development to support a satisfyingly twisty plot.”
So far so good.
