Schismatrix Plus by Bruce Sterling

Lindsay is a rebel, maybe.  He  is exiled from his home and proceeds to carve a place for himself in the shattered solar system that is now man's home.

The establishment of extra-terrestrial Balkan states divided by philosophic differences based on  genetic manipulation or machine technology is the underpinning of this novel.  The extension of life by either genetic manipulation or mechanical means leads to conflict even within families.

To say Lindsay is confused world be a gross understatement.  His birth as a Mech but his training as a Shaper seems to have infused a basic schizophrenic behavior pattern in regards to his "diplomatic" approach to his environments.

The book never really captured my interest.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
