Narrated in perfectly plainspoken llit by Parisa Johnston, the carefully constructed plot centers on the relationship between emigrated Australian news reporter and dedicated family man, Martin Seymour, and Nasim Golestani, an Iranian crack computer scientist. The fate of the world is in their hands.
A gripping story about the power of technology, the pull of family, and what it means to be human.
As tragedy strikes his multicultural family, Martin struggles to maintain his place in his adapted culture, and to provide for his child. Zendigi explores what it means to be human, and the lengths one will go to in order to provide for ones children. This emotional roller coaster explores a non-Western-European near future that both challenges ideas of global monoculture and emphasizes the humanity we all share.

realistic, human, but uneventful
the story had what I think is an accurate portrayal of how to upload a brain and the limitations of doing so. the characters feel real and the story is grounded. It is well written but not like Egan's earlier works. not nearly as grandiose

the deep thought and breadth of this story makes it an instant and powerful force in one's thinking about the (near) future.
