Over the past week, we have been running a book tour for the sci-fi book Interfaces by P. Anilak. Today is the last day on the tour and so we are here to give you a book review!
Synopsis: In the not-too-distant future, humans allow their minds to be synaptically connected to omnipresent quantum computers through converters that encode signals to match neural communications. While working on human-machine interaction, Professor Kin Poto suspects that quantum computer viruses can be transferred to humans. An audacious experiment finds the professor astonished and bewildered about the profound, unchartered behavior of the human mind. Circumstances of this new-found reality represent an entirely new environment for human consciousness and provokes it to operate differently, unfolding further evolutionary potential.
This book was an interesting read. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this novella. I am a sci-fi reader and love this genre and this book definitely had a lot of theoretical concepts of what the future would look like.
I think that there was a lot info dumping in this book but it was necessary to get the ideas across. I will say that the thriller element was missing for me. I was expecting to be on edge and be worried for the characters since it says it is a psi-fi thriller but there weren’t really any thriller elements to it.
The way the future is visualized was very cool though. People could interact with synaptically connected devices to interfaces for almost everything. The big question was if a humans could contract a programmed virus through these devices and so it was a big morality issue that the book ponders and goes over.
The book definitely gets heavy at times with its scientific concepts and I did find myself having a hard time following along at points but I made it through and thought that it was very though provoking.
If you are scientific and love to theorize about the future of humanity and technology, then you would probably like this book!
Book Rating: 3/5
You can buy this book on Amazon and find it on Goodreads.
