By: Rhett C. Bruno
Sub-Genres: Solar System Colonies / Dead Earth / Political / AI / War & Rebellion – Stars, this book has it all.
Rating: 5 Stars
The Circuit, I believe, has a little bit of something for every science fiction reader. Although there are a few hiccups, mostly with over-description, I could find no true negatives while reading this book. It offers “massive world building done right”, an exploration of human nature, the development of artificial life, politics, social conflicts and a fully fleshed-out, believable future. The characters within The Circuit are unique and three dimensional, and most have no black or white lines drawn – offering instead a gray concept of justice and injustice that all depends on how you, the reader, relate to the characters and their motivations.
For the author’s ability to allow the reader choice when it comes to deciding who is right or wrong, although I dare say that is a highly blurred line in this book, I give The Circuit five stars.
