    I picked up this book while looking for a copy of the Difference Engine at a library. The novel started off slow and a little confusing, as two timelines were interwoven each with their own lingo, but within 20-30 pages it became one of the most engrossing scifi novels I have ever read.

    The novel focuses on two pieces of technology, additive technology like 3D printing - which is nice to see represented realistically, and telepresence themes across timelines.

    I found the characters were particularly endearing and would love to see a sequel.
