I ve been keeping up with Ferrett Steinmetz for over 15 years on various internet platforms and I ve been jumping at the chance to read his books ever since he got an agent and was able to publish traditionally His Flex series is a solid read across three books and perhaps should have gotten attention than they ended up receiving but The Uploaded is Steinmetz s shot at techno dystopia It doesn t always work Effectively imagine if instead of Social Security the older folks moved their consciousness online instead And they still got to run things and it was up to the rest of us to maintain their servers and their way of life until it was out turn That s the idea behind this story which follows some people who are willing to fight to undo the status uo The good on this is that as with the Flex trilogy and with some insight on how Steinmetz writes there s really not a wasted word here The poetic yet seemingly direct way he gets the plot from point A to point B is as much of a joy here as it was in his previous works The issue though is that this is less of a story that lends itself to that sort of treatment The Uploaded is reminiscent a lot of the sort of Cory Doctorow technopunk that has really hit home in the last few years and the writing doesn t always fit it This means that the book does feel like it s meandering off a bit in ways that were not probably intended It s not necessarily a bad thing and the way that everything works out kept me engaged but it s not the same as Flex and doesn t uite hit the same notes the same way as other books in this genre I don t want to call it a miss because the book still has its share of action and awesomeness It s just not great the way the Flex series was and it s just uite good in a lot of others If the concept grabs you the book probably will as well but this is not as direct a recommendation for this book the way others might be Dystopia especially today can be a tough sell and the book makes a good attempt at being up to the challenge Closer to a 35
