Blog Tour and Review: Bluescreen by Dan Wells

by Dan Wells

Rate: 3 stars

Synopsis:

Los Angeles in 2050 is a city of open doors, as long as you have the right connections. That connection is a djinni—a smart device implanted right in a person’s head. In a world where virtually everyone is online twenty-four hours a day, this connection is like oxygen—and a world like that presents plenty of opportunities for someone who knows how to manipulate it.

Marisa Carneseca is one of those people. She might spend her days in Mirador, the small, vibrant LA neighborhood where her family owns a restaurant, but she lives on the net—going to school, playing games, hanging out, or doing things of more questionable legality with her friends Sahara and Anja. And it’s Anja who first gets her hands on Bluescreen—a virtual drug that plugs right into a person’s djinni and delivers a massive, non-chemical, completely safe high. But in this city, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, and Mari and her friends soon find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy that is much bigger than they ever suspected.

Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence, returns with a stunning new vision of the near future—a breathless cyber-thriller where privacy is the world’s most rare resource and nothing, not even the thoughts in our heads, is safe.


This story was fascinating and frightening all together. 
To think we could one day be plugged in to everything is pretty creepy.

  1. The way you carry your Chanel replica handbags can entirely reflect the way you feel on that particular day. Thrown over your shoulder, your bag says that you are busy and focused and ready for anything. A clutch snuggled under your armpit can be a safety blanket, keeping your muscles tense and aware so that your mind is on alert. Draped over your forearm, a purse can reflect a prim and proper or conventional attitude.Over the years I have pared down my bag wardrobe, leaving the classics and workhorses as my go-to friends. I also discovered the joy of louis vuitton replica handbags, the New York institution that can fix and restore pretty much any damaged or worn out bag that you can throw at them. I now acquire new bags rather judiciously. Rare are the impulse purchases or trendy totes that all the celebrities carry. I have no interest in a Birkin or Kelly. Louis Vuitton does nothing for me, and even the Phantom is becoming a bit too ubiquitous. But a well-designed, well-crafted bag in a supple leather or suede does more to catch my attention than most things.
