A well constructed view of the future, a conspiracy that draws you in (9/10)

I find action sequences hard to appreciate in book form (I'm spoiled by movies and CGI I suppose), so though well done those were a little lost on me. For me where Beyond Could Nine really shines is in the politics and conspiracy that unfold against the backdrop of a detailed and plausible depiction of the future. The many nuances depicted of life in 2247 are imaginative and come to life. The pacing of the plot reveals is good enough to keep interest throughout, and the book becomes a real page turner in the third act.
By the end I couldn't put it down. I'm glad to know this is a series in the making and I'm excited for book 2.
I was pleased with how he kept it not too technical (10/10)

I have to say that he was one of my students. That said, it is very well done. I was pleased with how he kept it not too technical, but enough to be plausible and interesting. The pace is good, the addictive drug handled well, definitely has to be in the plot. There were some times that I couldn't put it down. That's a high complement from me.
