LOCK IN

Au­thor: John Scalzi Pub­lisher: Gol­lancz Told from the per­spec­tive of an FBI agent work­ing a mur­der case, this near- fu­ture tale con­cerns a virus that leaves its vic­tims ” locked in” – awake and aware, yet un­able to move. For­tu­nately, those who con­tract it can trans­mit their con­scious­nesses into ro­bot avatars. We said: ” It moves along briskly, and doesn’t want for clever ideas. How­ever, the plot’s far too neat, and too many char­ac­ters are sketchily drawn.”
