Book Review – Blindsight – Peter Watts

BlindsightBlindsight by Peter Watts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Smart, technical, mind blowing. I've always been a fan of first contact stories(Contact, Mote in God's Eye). This one has a much different approach and quite a unique spin. It starts out a bit tough to read, but this is hard SciFi after all. I was afraid at first due to the jacket mentioning a vampire, but its is a realistic thought on the evolution of humans, not just a play for the Twilight generation. Even if you don't like the scifi aspects, its worth a read for the quotes and the appendix where Watts breaks down the back story to some of the science used in the book.
