A bizarre absurdist bourgeois epic set in the space kindgom of the posthuman con artists Features hyperbole and sharp dark humorAs scientific and technological advances shatter the limitations which define modern thought and sustain the existence of a single human community rugged individualists and pretentious youths boldy reach for transcendanceBut as it turns out it s bourgeois property relations which end up transcending the material conditions that sustained them Commodity fetichism doesn t even begin to describe this Freed from all material and social limitations to imprint their mystical freedom on a boundless cosmic blackboard people file patents and trade stocks Nobody is in a position to actually enforce these property claims but people organize their lives around them anyway And so genetically engineered super Ponzis enjoy unfettered power over people s lives and homesDo not fear this book has a high irony content This Austrian economic cult seems to be a product of cosmic evolution Indeed in Schismatrix s universe the only thing that seems to allow advanced cultures to exist for long is this sort of capitalist nonsense Cultures which are not obssessed by it find something better to do than existence you see Therefore pointless interstellar markets exist Because futility is freedomOr somethingSterling is so deadpan with this stuff I don t know what he was thinking I do hope it s some kind of satireNonsense and cool existential musings aside this book is crammed with nice SF concepts and fun andor dirty details If you don t mind all those uaint data tapes that isBut it s disjointed uneven aimless and as you might have guessed by now fundamentally implausibleParts of the book are simply nuts It s also a difficult read at times and a couple of scenes are borderline incomprehensibleAll that said Schismatrix is not 100% silly Serious issues are alluded to and stimulating ideas are shared with the readerThis book is also noteworthy for beign influential among hardcore genre practictionersAlastair Reynolds much reasonable new series as far as the first installment is concerned anyway owes much to it for instance

Another goodreads reviewer wrote It is creative but one of the characteristics of this book is that the author writes as if the story is happening in our present world so he does not define words and key elements just as an author writing in the present wouldn t define terms they assume are collective knowledge They gave this book one star One starIt s times like these I realize how crazy some people are The above techniue is one of the marks of good science fiction as opposed to the forced and schlocky shit people think of when they think of science fictionAnyway in protest of this confusing and misguided review I m upping my rating to five I have only fond memories of Schismatrix Plus Cockroaches Space pirates Zero G martial arts Terrible bacterial infections Genetically engineered hookersI guess it was amazing
