SURPRISING That s the word that comes to mind when I think about this book It starts out as just a thriller like The Circle giving you some insider peaks into a big social media company and then you realize it s going WAY deeper than what you expected from a tech book Like what happens in a post awful president world where things don t get better What happens if you re a coward and don t stand p for what s right And then what happens if you have a chance to do it againIt s also well paced lots of action and sci fi elements that I think Ready Player One or Dark
MATTER FANS WILL ENJOY AND THEfans will enjoy And the can be read simply as a seriously gripping sci fitechno thriller or it can be read as something deeper Read as what can happen when someone decides to have courage And what happens when you try to break the echo chamber Technology is like every other market good it serves those who have the money to build it and crushes those nderneathWow I really liked how the story wrapped The Ex Who Hired Her up It was truly satisfying There were someestions that came to my mind at around halfway through the book when mysteries kept piling on I thought the author forgot about them thought it was going to be one of those cases where the author aims too high by fiddling with creative scenarios that are hard to execute without plotholes I m glad that wasn t the case My Testing the Limits uestions were answered which made the story all the rewardingThe Echo Chamber is a science fiction story about a virtual reality The Echo Chamber was such an enthralling read for me I enjoyed it thoroughly Isually don t like books that alternate between periods because they take long to develop the story and put everything together but this one was really easy to follow from the beginning The plot was engaging from start to finish and surprisingly exciting for a book about technology The author gave information in small amounts at a time and just when you think you have it figured out there s an exciting twist that surprises you entirely The suspense is great and made the book hard to put down despite my busy schedule The characters stories were also really interesting and well developed My personal favorite is OrionMike not because he s essentially the main character but because he s so well described and pure I grew attached to his character My favorite thing about the book itself is its The Prodigals Return unexpectedness It addresses sooo many different themes that you would literally never expect when you start reading As you get deeper into the book it really feels like you re going for a ride with all the twists and turns the book takes and all the themes introduced like racism I would recommend this book to any avid reader of any kind of fiction since it covers so much It pulls you away from the story line briefly every now and then to give information that would seem entirelynrelated if it weren t for the author s talent in tying it all together The ending was very satisfying All in all the echo chamber did not disappoint 1010 would recommend Reviewed via an ARC from the author for Rosie Amber s Review Team The fact that it was free has not affected this honest reviewWhat I liked The author has talent this a most original novel that makes some interesting points in an intelligent and well informed fashion Basically he can write good sentences has a fine handle on suspense and Wicked Way Interactive 1 uses words c Wallowing in our societies advance towards a social media blowout Evans story is crippled by a cast of lackluster characters I could tell you the exact moment this story came crashing down around my ears I literally put down my e reader mumbling a disbelieving Is he for real I won t though because well spoiler So let s backp a little and cover the basics firstA virtual reality social networkA scheme to digitize the human brainAnd Diana the most open ended AI in the worldIn a few months one of these AI in the worldIn a few months one of these would be mocked as an The Bosss Marriage Plan utter failureAnother project would be hauled as a groundbreaking successAnd the last one would bring the nation to the brink of ruinThe story follows Silicon Valley programmers Mike and Catalina Hollywood megastar Charlotte and former Marine oh boy I forgot his name Okay then skip the basics for now because to me this is actually the key problem with The Echo Chamber the characters aren t fleshed out enough to care for them for their respective relationships with each other andor and this is the most critical part tonderstand their motivations The main reason is an omnipresent all knowing narrator who doesn t stay long enough with one character at a time but there s also some clich d extremes yes there re daddy issues and an evil NaziThat s all a shame because and we re back to basics here Featured on The Verge A Silicon Valley scandal sets off a chain of dystopian events in this topical and twist laden thriller about virtual heists social media and second chancesMike is a Silicon Valley wunderkind who stood idly by while his company launched an addicting social me.

Social Media Supernova Numbed By Their Titular Echo Chambers Somethingmedia supernova numbed by their titular echo chambers something reader might very well identify with So we just let our platform make everyone dumber We let it be a swamp Only the algorithms can be a fair arbiter on these ethical issues he said with a condescendingly paternal nod We can t let our personal biases get involved Don t you see that our biases are already here that we built algorithms solely aimed at getting sers at all costs The reminiscences of todays political and social reality don t end there and although they are kind of in the face like the often repeated conclusion that technology is just another good serving only those who can afford it they still add weight to the tale As does the fact that author Rhett J Evans a former US Army officer now working in the tech industry writes about stuff he actually has personal experience with like Silicon Valley or the military Plus he chooses a cleverly twisted way to tell his story non chronologicallyStill there s this aforementioned twist I just can t wrap my head around Sadly it turns a lot of the rather grave and criticizing parts into ridicule and in combination with a flat cast of characters corrupted the experience at least to me to a point where I can t in good conscience recommend The Echo Chamber nconditionally Pros Clever set Tuckers Claim up interesting characters timely topicsPossible Cons Video game style climax and villain tells all scene Roving point of view and a fair bit of tellThe Echo Chamber is in part a tale of tech corporate malfeasance involving a rogue AI a blender and ruthless Silicon Valley executives who build a social media echo chamber This hypnotic virtual reality seduces most of the world s population trapping people in their own memories or with a personalized preconceived worldview comfort zone This shadow world is a paradise for pundits who spew to put it politely non evidence based ideas about p This book was surprisingly action packed for being so based in technology It was engaging and never boring It had a little bit of a Butterfly Effect to it with the reoccurring lifetimes small changes and outcomes The book had a way of touching on current events while keeping the story completely fictional There were a lot of twists and turns and the story wasn t at all predictable There is than onenexpected hero The ending did not disappoint Hold on and be prepared to pay attention or you might miss something important Rhett Evans hits the sci fi scene with a solid debut novel As you ll see on the back cover and in the Table of Contents you re going to have a lot thrown at you The first half of the book bounces back and forth between past and future as well as between a number of characters though makes it so you never felt lostThe plot is a flurry of elements from Groundhog s Day the Matrix Inception and even Indiana Jones For better or worse Evans doesn t stay with any of those plot types for too long which keeps the roller coaster ride going but it can be a little disheartening if you re really getting into something in particularSome examples early in the book there s a really fun scene with one of the protagonists in the virtual world involving a bunch of historic monuments Then there s nothing like that for a long time The Groundhog s Day aspect of Mike being trapped in a loop of his own memories as described in the back cover is only really fleshed out somewhere in the middle and then it s over though ramifications certainly remain Even the love story between two characters that builds The Runaway and the Cattleman up in the first half is absent in almost the entire second half as one of them goes missing In the end Evans makes the story his own paints scenes beautifully with his details and touches on some timely issues The story leaves perhaps a very a loose chance of a seuel but even if there s not I ll be keeping on eye on what Evans comesp with next English review Rese a en espa ol The Echo Chamber by Rhett J Evans Published by Permuted Press 2019 263 pages Genres Dystopian Fiction Technological Thriller Techno thrillerCat Mike and Devon work in the future projects department of Sharesuare The company s immersive social network project Sharebox enjoys The Comeback Cowboy unprecedented success In the midst of an internal discussion between content regulation andnrestricted monetization an ethical Dia platform that made the world take a turn for the worse He did nothing when an outrageous tech scandal pushed a polarized country to the brink of collapse Then after becoming trapped in a loop of his own memories he is doomed to watch society fall apart over and over Only by
