Widescreen, action-packed science-fiction drama by a notable talent.In outer space you can never feel sure that your adversary is altogether human. The runcible buffers on Samarkand have been mysteriously sabotaged, killing many thousands and destroying a terraforming project. Agent Cormac must reach it by ship to begin an investigation. But Cormac has incurred the wrath of a vicious psychopath called Pelter, who is prepared to follow him across the galaxy with a terrifying android in tow. Despite the sub-zero temperature of Samarkand, Cormac discovers signs of life: they are two 'dracomen', alien beasts contrived by an extra-galactic entity calling itself 'Dragon', which is a huge creature consisting of four conjoined spheres of flesh each a kilometre in diameter. Caught between the byzantine wiles of the Dragon and the lethal fury of Pelter, Cormac needs to skip very nimbly indeed to rescue the Samarkand project and protect his own life.Gridlinked is the first sci-fi thriller in Neal Asher's compelling Agent Cormac series.… (més)

Enjoyed this . Can't wait to start the next one ( )

While I enjoyed the multiple point of view narrative, I wasn't quite sure about the transformation of Cormac into someone seemingly omniscient. The narrative seemed to hint at other worldly powers for him and Blegg. I liked Stanton and the rest of the characters much better. ( )

I'm working myself up to flying through the Polity Universe, having already read a bit of Asher already, and while I kinda expected something worse from the general consensus of this particular novel in the full continuity, I did not get frozen eyeballs after being exposed to cold vacuum.

Yay!

That being said, I did rather enjoy the spy stuff, the high-tech stuff, and the *ideas* of the super-AIs, the investigation of the planetary disaster, the BIG ALIENS, and, as a matter of course, the very cool action sequences.

I mean, DRAGON, yo! DRAGON.

And yes, this is hard-SF. Instantaneous travel, cyberpunk cyborgism, AIs everywhere, spaceships, and my personal favorite, mysterious immortal agencies. :) Literally, some Japanese guy who's the head of the investigatory agency who has been around since Hiroshima. Kinda has that St. Germain vibe. :)

This isn't the best SF novel I've ever read, but I can honestly say I had fun with it. I have no compunctions with moving on with the series. :) ( )

Can't see it getting higher than a 3/5.

The entire Stanton/Pelter plotline felt tacked on, it doesn't do much to build the story.
The climax is both convoluted and very dull feeling. Also, I'm not convinced it actually makes any sense at all.
Cormac himself ceases to be interesting once his gridlink addiction vanishes. ( )
