    One thought on “Limit of Vision”

    1. This is the sort of book where it was enjoyable as I was reading it, but I have a feeling that 6 months from now I'll have very few specific memories of it - it was a pretty straightforward thriller; didn't really leave any deep and indelible marks on my consciousness.A team of scientists is illegally working on a banned project - artifically engineered, diatom-like lifeforms that form colonies, seem to exhibit intelligence, and can be used as a symbiotic neural implant. When one of the scientis [...]

    2. _Limit of Vision_ by Linda Nagata is an interesting relatively near future science fiction thriller, one that was a little slow going and perhaps even choppy at first, with disparate storylines and at least at first with characters fairly light on detail, but about a quarter of the way into the book became a riveting narrative with a brisk pace, great tension, and a wonderful sense of escalation. Though at least one of the main characters remained to me at least not as well formed as I would hav [...]

    3. Limits of Vision (2001) focuses on nearly microscopic artefacts that in conjunction act like a distributed Computer net, a non-conscious Hive Mind that adumbrates the kind of non-conscious galactic civilization.

    4. Limit of Vision imagines a game-changing invention of artificial life forms, called LOVs because they're small enough that they exist at the Limit of Vision, tiny sparks of light that organize into neural networks, and where it's possible to implant them in a human to enhance their intelligence (and allow them collaborate and share emotions even more easily than ideas). They're studied only under the strictest conditions to avoid their spread, but part of the research involves forcing an evoluti [...]

    5. In the not-too-near future, nanotechnologist Virgil Copeland and his team are on the frontier of AI development. They've created a near-microscopic new species called LOVs, because "they exist at the limit of human vision." LOVs form a symbiotic link with their human host's brain. Because of this link and the potential power LOVs have over their hosts, they have been deemed unsafe and banished to a ship orbiting earth. But Virgil's team have rescued some LOVs from their exile, and using themselv [...]

    6. Right off the bat, I'm going to complain about the cover art chosen for this book! Ridiculous! First, it's a spoiler. Second, they don't get that big. Third, at first glance, it looks like the man poling the boat is fighting off the thing, which it apposite to the story so is misleading.There was a lot to like about this book but also some frustrating aspects. It felt like it should have been a much larger book. Due to absolutely minimum "world-building", it was hard to glean the context in whic [...]

    7. I've been sitting on this review for a while. Not sure what to say about this book. The characters are a little murky, their motivations counter-productive at best, and the entire thing seems to set up for a sequel that clearly never came. But they are sympathetic, and striking, and unique, and even though politically/morally i found myself rooting against them, I liked them enough as people to continue to support them.The book is about nanomachines, and trans-humanism, and embracing the future [...]

    8. This was an interesting concept and was fun for awhile. But I failed to see how these little LOVs that were supposed to amplify human intelligence ever actually did. None of the characters ever really did anything abnormally intelligent. In fact, they seemed kind of resigned to fate most of the time. There were a few "f" words.

    9. Man, I was hoping it would be awesome, there are not a lot of female scifi authors out there. It never really met the potential of the description The nano-tech wasn't set up well enough to back-up some pretty intense evolutions towards the end.I've read some amazing scifi this year, I would recommend Cassini division for some mind blowing world building.

    10. Bought it, started reading, stayed up until I finished it. I didn't like all of the characters, but I liked the ideas of it. Almost 5 stars, but didn't quite like the characters enough, although I like that there were good guys on all sides. It could have explored further, but the lack of a neat ending fitted well with the overall book.

    11. Enjoyable, fast read with a good mix of believable future-science and believable but somewhat thin characters; it would benefit from fattening up the brief backstories of the main characters. It could also use some tech-updating without comprising the integrity of the story.

    12. I was disappointed. The other book that I read by this author was great. This one just never went anywhere and then it ended. I don't know if there is a follow up book or what, but it just didn't capture my imagination the way I had hoped.

    13. Non-human intelligence, what if it got loose from the lab? Nagata does a fantastic job of exploring the problem.Highly Recommended

    14. I stopped reading this book about 30-40 pages into the book. The story looked great but the language she uses is terrible and offensive.

    15. Too political for me. I did like the part near the end where the LOV's are evolving at a rapid pace. I also liked one of the main characters, Ela, but not the cast of the multitudes.

    16. Due to my impatience with the story, I stopped reading Limit of Vision after the first few chapters. I couldn't feel any empathy for the characters, nor connect/identify with them.

    17. Linda Nagata always makes me think.Good read, good book.A lot of burning questions. That is how she writes and why I like her work.Try this one.
