“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.
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.
A super happy end would be nice. I guess this would spoil it for you a bit. Yes, happy endings are great.
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.
I would highly recommend this book. Who knows it might be predicting the future of politics.
