OK, I got the Peter Watts Blindsight idea, but wasn't sure about the rest. I haven't read it yet, but did read the 3 book Starfish series. Got them all free, the original from Tor, then the other 2 from our own ebook uploads.

If you haven't read the series, then you are missing a great story!

It's very hard scifi, lots of violence, so you may not like it after all. Forget I mentioned it.

okay, well then perhaps i won't take a look at it.

(edit : i've moved the previous 4 posts to this thread from a thread on the same subject in the french forum, since they are in english they seemed more appropriate here).

Watts is quite good at writing about the quiet moments in conversations. He captures a mood and paints emotions extremely well. Dixie is right though, if you don't like hard SF, graphic violence, or sexual deviancy then steer clear. Otherwise the Rifters trilogy was top-shelf (personally disappointed by how the head-cheese essentially dropped out of the story after the first book). Happen to be reading Blindsight right now.
