Book Review: Crosstalk by Connie Willis

Four Stars

“Communication’s not everything.”

Contemporary social media is the perfect environment for Willis’ trademark self-induce attention deficient characters. Hard to review this book without giving away too much. (In fact, the book is so laced with current culture references that it may soon seem dated.)

“Internet conversations always involve Hitler.”

Willis has a talent for letting the reader figure out the next plot twist just before the protagonist catches on, then surprises both.

“According to Wikipedia, which as we know is always accurate.”

Dark night of the soul” dates to far earlier than F. Scott Fitzgerald.

A good read for fans of Connie Willis. If you haven’t tried her, this might be a better entrance than some of her historical science fiction.

“Never underestimate the power of a good book.”
