Dual Lock In Reviews in Locus Magazine
Dual, but not dueling, because they are both positive. Whew!
The one by Gary K. Wolfe says that Lock In is “the most enjoyable robot story I’ve read this year — even though it’s not quite about robots,” and notes there are “provocative notions about power, privilege, politics, and even family dynamics that give the novel a surprising and provocative complexity beneath its kinetic and movie-ready exterior.” The one from Adrienne Martini says that Lock In “is the work of a writer who hasn’t lost any of his swagger, yet has grown a little bit smarter about when to show off just how clever he is.”
I’ll take that. I’ll take both!
