    Inhaltsangabe

    Moh Kohn is a security mercenary, his smart gun and killer reflexes for hire. Janis Taine is a scientist working on memory-enhancing drugs, fleeing the US/UN's technology cops. Jordan Brown is a teenager in the Christian enclave of Beulah City, dealing in theologically-correct software for the world's fundamentalists - and wants out. In a balkanized twenty-first century, where the "peace process" is deadlier than war, the US/UN's spy satellites have everyone in their sights. But the Watchmaker has other plans, and the lives of Moh, Janis, and Jordan are part of the program. A specter is haunting the fight for space and freedom, the specter of the betrayed revolution that happened before. . . .

    Some stories don't age well

    After listening to the story for some time, I came to the conclusion that it would have been great stuff some 20 years ago. As a matter of fact, this is quite close to the real release date of the book: 1995. I've got no idea why it took almost 20 years to release the audio book.
    As a result nowadays some of the "fresh" ideas on AI and social structures do not appear that fresh anymore. Most of them have been "reinvented" and told several times by other authors during the last two decades. Some have even changed their status from "SF" to "been there already".

    The reader does a good job in terms of character representation and accentuation and makes listening an pleasant experience.

    Conclusion: If you're in the mood for some solid old-school cyberpunk story-telling, you won't be disappointed - if you're looking for state-of-the-art SF, "The Star Fraction" definitely isn't up to standard.
