Double Vision by Tricia Sullivan

Double Vision

Tricia Sullivan

Truly two books for the price of one as the heroine slips between 80s USA and 'The Grid'. Highly recommended for those who like traditional SF, dragon-driven fantasy, or just want to question their grip on reality.

Extract

But to me there was a big unknown in terms of whether Dataplex was making me think and feel things, or whether my visions were truly there to be felt whether or not Dataplex existed. Whether the world on a TV screen was more real than me and Miles sitting in a car yakking about it.

Parallels
  • The Intuitionist by Colson Whitehead
  • Minority Report by Philip K Dick
  • Possession by A S Byatt
