Review: Kill Decision


Kill Decision
Kill Decision by Daniel Suarez

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Now with 100% less Giant Super-powered Deus Ex Machina

I really enjoyed Daemon and Freedom(tm), for their pacing, and the thorough dive into technology speculation. And I'm happy to say that continues in full in the reading of Kill Decision. From killer ants to pheromones to seventy two hour batteries (ok, the 72 hr batteries are almost as implausible as the giant super-powered Merritt), Daniel Suarez explores the geopolitical, technological and moral implications of an autonomous military in the hands of them that can afford it. And it's a very scary vision of What If.

I consider it a win anytime a book spurs me on to do further research on a topic. So this is a triumph.
