I'll throw this out - Faith by John Love. Best SF novel I've read in a while....but I don't read that many novels so take it with a grain of salt.

Hi everyone.

Thanks a lot for all your recommendations.
I jumped into 'hardwired' already and from the first 40-something pages, I like it a lot. great recommendation.

Also dowloaded the 'brave new world series' book. short stories in there but really worth reading. started to read the first. seems also interesting.

Regarding 'snow crash' and 'diamond age' love them. already got them paper-based.

I also love the Jeff Somers series with Avery Cates (5 books...). Could not stop reading them all and re-read them already. Just in case someone who has similar interests not knowing those books so far.

Going to look into all your other recommendations. One after the other. Really appreciate all your efforts. Seems like my PW got really something to do

regards to all of you.
Hey cool! Glad you're liking Hardwired, it was one of the first books I got on my PW as well.

I'm sure I read that back in the day, but I can't remember a single thing about it.

I thought Fate's Mirror had a bit of a Snow Crash feel. The main character was similarly slick.

In case you're interested, I posted a review of this book in 2011:

again - thanks all for your help.

already added 'fate's mirror' and going to read the other recommended books.
'hardwired' still great to read.... definitely a thumbs-up.

btw.. I already read some books from charles stross. liked them a lot as well. guess he is worth a look for people who like SF.

hope this thread might be also of use to others with same tastes and likings.

regards....
