Comments The Accord

  • Brad

    While there were a lot of intriguing ideas in this book, the overall execution was not so exciting. I was hoping for something a little bit different than a revenge novel that takes place in the real world, moves to the virtual world and then spans the years in that VR world as it develops and grows. The concept of the Accord was interesting, a VR world that humans can enter after they die and then live virtually as essentially immortal. A clever concept spoiled by the mundane chase story. Thoug [...]

    Wow!!!The Accord is a very powerful novel and that is reflected in its setting which manages to make a smooth transition from a near-future Earth, wrecked by climate change, millions of refugees and political instability, to the man-made digital Haven of "The Accord", temporarily housed in Earth's tottering infrastructure, while trying to inscribe itself on the fundamental fabric of the Universe and in the last third of the novel to a space opera setting of diverse human civilizations across the [...]

    "The Accord, a virtual utopia where the soul lives on after death and your perceptions are bound only by your imagination. This is the setting for a tale of love, murder and revenge that crosses the boundaries between the real world and this virtual reality"—Blurb from the 2009 Solaris editionOne of the blurbs for this novel is a line from a review that says ‘one of the best novels of virtual reality ever written’ which actually pays this a disservice since it is far far more than that.Noa [...]

    It's great to see a book giving so thorough a treatment to the SF-nal concept of simulated reality - it's an idea I consider to have been unfairly neglected; "The Accord" delivers on this in spades. The core concept is a world on the brink of disaster, pinning its last, best hope on escaping into simulated reality. It's a mixture of despair and wonder, because the new world is miraculous - but it's firmly rooted in the ugly, tragic reality left behind.The concept is extremely worthwhile; the boo [...]


  • Sean Randall

    I got into this one quite well, especially digging the technology. There's one scene where these guys are sat having a conversation, knowing they're being watched, and all the time they're "talking" inanities, data's pinging back and forth between them on a mental level. Reminded me of the sort of mental focus needed to play chess in the dark a la Robert Heinlein.The whole idea of the Accord was a bit odd and failed to sweep me in, but I enjoyed the romance, the potentialities, and especially th [...]


  • John Owen

    Enjoyed this one, though perhaps it petered out at the end, rather than reach a satisfactory conclusion. Lot of good imagination on the ramifications of his base premise. Heavily into cyberspace in a big way, in this case, an electronic afterlife, all wound round a central love triangle which works because the characters are excellent.


  • Zachary Sarver

    This was a book with a lot of neat ideas that ended up mostly a mess.The characters are largely unrelatable, often even unbelievable. They are largely driven by some kind of obsession, more often than not romantic or sexual. Except for poor Priscilla, who isn't so much a character herself as an object of obsession for two of the other characters.The writing is also a bit of a mess. The viewpoint bounces back between three different characters and three different styles. One character is only see [...]


  • Donald

    Such an interesting concept, a digital 'heaven', a copy of Earth, where you upload after death. Unfortunately even cyberspace gets crowded, and the dead have to die again, with some lag before rebirth. As 'The Accord' starts to need more and more of cyberspace it starts to go on the blink, 'reality' starts to break down, and the only way to save The Accord is to take it into infinite, quantum space, which works, but had the knock on effect of blanking out an already volatile Earth's web grid, ad [...]


  • Elizabeth Creaghan

    I read this as the first book I've ever read with the Sprint app I downloaded as it's one of the books from a storybundle that I can have in epub format to try it with. The basic structure of the sentences, I think, really helped with the speed reading. But the constant flickering between points of view made it difficult to keep up sometimes. Story-wise, I'm not too sure about this book. They covered some really fascinating issues with creating a digital 'heaven' so there were elements that I en [...]


  • LordOfDorkness

    This novel reads like a short story that somehow got stretched to 500 pages. It interests and intrigues just about as much as it rambles and cudgels you over the head with the clumsy calloused hands of monotonous boredom. I don't know really. It's a good book, if you can be patient for it. But it often seems like the book itself is not willing to meet you halfway.


  • Tania

    Interesting premise, some dark ramifications, material to think about. A couple of parts handle some unpleasant issues, but they're valid concerns in this premise,I just didn't like that the end became a little too weird, in my opinion. Still, it's possible I will re-read it. At least, I know I will think about it.


  • Tiffany

    In my opinion, this book was a waste of time. I did finish all of it, but only because I forced myself. The story was confusing and went around and around in circles with no actual ending and I really didn't like the characters. I don't know how it got published, that big of a stinker.


  • Craig

    This was a really good book. Nice concept, basically a Virtual Reality world your memories can be uploaded to when you die, a virtual Heaven. Interesting concept and the author presented it well. I found the book to be a lot of fun.


  • Mike

    Raises interesting questions about the future of moralism vis-a-vis the advancement of technology - but not much of a story.
