John Akers’ debut novel, The Infinet, is a highly compelling novel that avoids the clichés while presenting arguments that are both intelligent and immediately plausible. This book makes you wish you knew the author so you could discuss it with them in depth. The setting is advanced enough to feel futuristic while still conveying a sense of realism through the current day roots of the technology it contains. There were occasions where the dialogue and exposition were so technical that I had trouble following it, but these paragraphs were brief and did not impact my ability to follow the plot. The Infinet is not a fast-paced novel but Aker’s excellent tension control ensures the novel is gripping from start to finish.
