Book Note

The Quantum Thief
by Hannu Rajaniemi

Despite an irritating beginning and the lack, really, of a satisfying ending, The Quantum Thief is a lot of fun. As in most post-human books, it isn't about post-human life, it's about throwbacks who still approximate humans. That's what we find on the moving Martian city, Oubliette, where legendaryish thief Jean le Flambeur must go to track down his missing memories. There are hints, of course, that he may be/have been something much greater, hints that point to Sequels Yet to Come.
