Crescent City RhapsodyE inching their way up buildings like plants in a fast growing jungle She moved briskly but her heart was lifeless She was looking at her past and seeing a future that she was not a part of People sat leaning against buildings here and there which was the hardest to see They were not begging Their brains were changing They were adapting to the new city As cities become organisms a new generation of profoundly different humans comes of age and hope dawns in Crescent City and Goonan directs the show with artistic flair Crescent City Rhapsody is confusing and delightful a swoony harmony of words swirling around crisply melodic ideas Therese Littleto. This book is an attempt to translate jazz music into a science fiction novel I think it is uite successful at that and I fully appreciate the artistry that it reuired The only problem is that I don't really like jazzThe story follows many separate characters over the course of twenty or so years from around 2010 to 2030 Each chapter follows a different set of characters and is set a year or two after the preceeding chapter There's no real plot to speak of very few of the characters overlap in any significant way and the term Crescent City isn't even mentioned by any character at all until page 290 The theme is the exploration of the many different ways nanotechnology might be incorporated into daily lives across the world and how different societies will evolve based on those applications Some societies weaponize the technology Some use it to try to build utopias Some use it to control the masses and establish dictatorial governments The subtle progression of the technology over time is interesting to watch and some of the technological innovations that Goonan writes about she has an invention almost identical to Microsoft Surface were almost prescient considering she published this in 2002 and obviously wrote it even earlier than that but I had a lot of trouble changing focus from chapter to chapter without any indication as to where the story was eventually going to lead meThis being novelized jazz obviously all of the disparate pieces have to come together to form a whole by the end and they do that in a very satisfying manner The attention to detail displayed to get all of the characters into place over the span of a few decades is admirable and much like jazz the separate parts all collide to make A Conclusion so than The Ending but I just didn't care enough about any of the characters or the loosely formed story to want to read any in this universe
