Review of “Interface”

“Interface” was written by Neal Stephenson and Frederick George. I have read almost all of Neal Stephenson’s books, so I can quite safely say that “Interface” feels a lot like a Neal Stephenson book.

The story is about William Cozzano who is running for president. A governor who due to a stroke gets operated. A biochip is inserted in his skull. This chip is linked to an advanced polling system giving him feedback from the electorate. The operation is paid by a group of powerful investors. The group has existed for centuries and they like being in control of governments.

The Good

There are so many good things to say about this book that I don’t know where to start. I think a lot of people would love to have a chip like that in their head without being controlled of course. Or be part of a global conspiracy.

The Bad

A super happy end would be nice. I guess this would spoil it for you a bit. Yes, happy endings are great.

The Ugly

Some stories in the book seem unrealistic or over dramatized. But it was necessary probably. Also I don’t think an international audience is that interested in American Football.

Conclusion

I would highly recommend this book. Who knows it might be predicting the future of politics.
