Book Review on THE BOY WHO FELL FROM THE SKY …”A VERY GOOD READ! RECOMMENDED.”
The Boy who Fell from the Sky was thought-provoking and very insightful. It not only predicts potentiality in the tech-wave, but of course, political and environmental outcomes if trends are not shifted radically. It is a very human story, as the main character really tries to hold onto his humanity in the midst of a very dark time, where people are being reduced to bar codes, where relevancy as a single man or woman has been nullified, and where any kind of freedom is being shut down in the name of “security”. It’s quite a terrifying picture, but in all honesty, one that we must face if we don’t wake up and smell the coffee so to speak – simply because there is a faction of people in our world who make their living by empowering fear and terror – an industry that is growing exponentially through war, weaponry and surveillance – and if we don’t do something to check it, it will simply become so dominant that it will be a self-empowering machine. And of course, as history has shown us, humanity eventually will rise up and destroy the oppressor. Technologically speaking, I loved the perspectives with nanotechnology and VR (Virtual Reality). All in all, a very good read. I recommend it.
