Imagine a plague that incapacitates almost 1.7 million people - and now imagine a cure that is even worse.
John Scalzi is the author of several SF novels including the bestselling Old Man's War sequence, comprising OLD MAN'S WAR, THE GHOST BRIGADES and the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling THE LAST COLONY. He is a winner of science fiction's JOHN W. CAMPBELL AWARD for Best New Writer, and he won the HUGO AWARD for YOUR HATE MAIL WILL BE GRADED, a collection of essays from his popular blog, Whatever. His latest novel, Redshirts, hit the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller list in its first week on sale. He lives in Ohio with his wife and daughter.
Scalzi's latest is a fantastic read. A fast paced sci-fi crime thriller, Lock In has enough of both to keep fans of either genre gripped. Another accomplished novel from John Scalzi and another recommendation from this reader. * The Book Beard Blog *
John Scalzi's Lock In is just brilliant stuff that you don't want to miss out on. From the first sentence I read of Unlocked I was hooked line and sinker to the idea behind Lock In. John Scalzi presents his idea in full colors and has created a very dangerous and dire setting, it's not only a story that focuses on the virus alone or it's consequences alone or how society is dealing with it, it is much more than those parts alone. It's a detective kind of story that combines all of the above mentioned aspects in a brilliant story. * THE BOOK PLANK *
Overall, this is a throught-provoking novel about individual and community rights, politics, identity, and a solid investigation. Definitely recommended. * Civilian Reader *
Lock In is science fiction for the masses. Count me as one of them...it's clubbing you over the head with fun, and intrigue, and a compelling narcotic craving desire to keep reading. * Tor.com *
