novel is almost 650 pages in length and, when boiled down
to its roots there is not much of a story here: Governor has
stroke, implants chip and then runs for president. However
the authors have managed to weave an intriguing plot and bring
forth interesting characters with whom the reader can relate.
an era when the line between man and machine is becoming more
and more blurred, Interface could well be the last
truly great science fiction story before the science fact
book cries out for a movie to be made of it and if Hollywood
knows what good for it it will snap up the rights.
riveting read from start to finish.
