    (Proof of Concept) [PDF FREE] ↠ Gwyneth Jones 25 stars This was a disappointment honestly Rushed didn't establish the world or characters very well and the ending came out of left field I think this would have worked better as a novel as there would have been time to establish the world and set things up so that events felt truly shocking and meaningful As it is I was just kinda confused and stopped caring by the halfway point

Although it is only 176 kindle pages long Proof of Concept feels like a novel length read Not in the it s just slow and boring and feels like it s taking forever way that one might assume either Instead Gwyneth Jones does a great job of giving the reader so much story in a relatively short amount of pages As soon as she establishes the setting she s off and running The pace is fast the dialogue is good and there s enough death to make a sci fi horror hound happyGwyneth Jones explores several ideas within Proof of Concept Some new some not so much How would a group of extroverts and a group of introverts get along if trapped in an isolated environment What if our current evolution of media and popular opinions being the ruling ones continues the way it has been Facts will give way to who has the most popular opinion Her GAM Global Audience Media virtual media representative seems disturbingly likely if that s the case Also her take on the first hosted AI is definitely something to be considered There s of course but you ll need to read it yourselfProof of Concept does reuire your full attention This is not a story you can breeze through There were paragraphs especially in the beginning that I had to read a few times when I had gotten distracted It s not a book that gives you multiple paragraphs of text you need to have a science degree to understand though You just need to be able to wrap your brain around some large words and hefty ideasThe end of Proof of Concept had me exclaiming in frustration Then turning back to the beginning to see what in the world I missed Sure enough even though I d read one paragraph like three times I still managed to miss the clue that would have set me up for the ending It was something that in retrospect should have been if not obvious than at least not a surpriseSide note I was happy to see the nod to Stephen HawkingOverall Proof of Concept was a great read and I can t wait to check out work from Gwyneth JonesDisclaimer I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review consideration

I ve had this obscure novella by Gwyneth Jones on my to read list for a few years and recently located a copy on eBay I m not generally a completist but have read a good many of Jones novels Her Bold as Love series is one of my favourite visions of the future a guardedly utopian Britain in which technological civilisation has largely collapsed and government is by attractive rockstars I highly recommend it Her other sci fi tends to be intellectually interesting but isn t as emotionally compelling That certainly holds for Proof of Concept which contains some fascinating ideas while not doing a lot to develop the narrator The setting is an overpopulated world of environmental collapse in which the richest 1% are funding scientific efforts at interstellar space travel Nothing hugely original there The specific setting of the story is far distinctive and intriguing a massive underground cavern in which scientists and reality TV stars are sealed off together for a year The purpose of this is to enable experiments on the Needle which may allow colonisation of a distant planet Kir the narrator has an AI in her brain and is trying to work out what the heck is going on This eventually becomes clear although the twist was not hugely surprising I preferred the creepiness that built up to the revelation as the atmosphere in the cavern was compellingly peculiar Gwyneth Jones has a specific knack for evoking caves and underground tunnels she also did so in Spirit or The Princess of Bois Dormant I have no further commentary to make as despite some excellent world building details Proof of Concept wasn t as memorable as I d hoped

For such a short novella Proof of Concept is packed to bursting with plot threads thematic uestions and worldbuilding elements The story takes place in a fascinating dystopian world where pollution and global warming have pushed the world s population into giant hives separated by toxic Dead Zones where impoverished non citizens try to eke out their short existences MegaCorps have a chokehold on culture and politic and even scientific endeavor must be turned into pop culture and seek the approval of the GAM Global Audience Mediation AI The issue of extreme population control is hotly contested as is the future of the human race The uest for hyperspatial travel is seen as humanity s last hope To get funding the serious scientists have partnered with the popular reality show stars to live underground in isolation to create a proof of concept for hyperspatial travelThe story is as packed with genre elements as it is with worldbuilding concepts a Vernesue journey to the center of the earth a coming of age story a romance and even a strong tang of mystery There are so many ideas packed into this little novella I just wish there had been a little room for character development The timespan of the story is so wide the cast so large and the worldbuilding is so broad that I think in some ways the characterization and driving urgency of the plot got a little lost I never got a real sense of the different characters and while I think this contributed to the shock factor of the ending I found it also rather unsatisfying In particular and uite at odds with the rest of the story I felt that the end expected me to unuestioningly accept the author s definition of good guys and bad guys and accept that the good guys can do absolutely terrible things and yet remain the good guys by definition alone time spent on characterization of both the faceless antagonists and the tarnished protagonists would have helped greatly I thinkOne of the most interesting themes in the story involves Kir a child saved from the Dead Zones to act as the wetware for an artificial superintelligence uantum computer Is she a captive or a willing participant Is she deluding herself when she believes the woman who cut her head open and installed an ASI inside sees her as a person rather than a tool Is the thing who shares her head a being with its own identity or merely a sophisticated calculator and despite the supposed firewalls what influence does it have on her behaviour You re going to put a supercomputer in my head It s going to share my brain Okay I can t stop you But what if he goes wrong and starts eating me Overall Proof of Concept is itself an interesting proof of concept for a world and idea that I think fully deserves a longer novel If you re looking for a fascinating little novella Proof of Concept is worth a look35 I received an advanced reader copy of this ebook through Netgalley from the publisher Torcom in exchange for my honest review Cross posted on BookLikes
