Pressestimmen

“Potent like Naam’s vividly imagined nano-drug Nexus, Crux is a heady cocktail of ideas and page-turning prose. It left my brain buzzing for days afterwards.”
Hannu Rajaniemi, author of The Quantum Thief and The Fractal Prince

“A blisteringly paced technothriller that dives deeper and even better into the chunky questions raised by Nexus. This is a fabulous book, and it ends in a way that promises at least one more. Count me in.” 
- Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother

"Nexus and Crux are a devastating probe into the political consequences of transhumanism; a sharp, chilling look at our likely future."
– Charles Stross, author of Halting State and Singularity Sky

“Smart, thoughtful, and hard to drop, this richly nuanced sequel outshines its predecessor with a wide cast of characters and some complicated, uneasy questions about power, responsibility, and the future of humanity.” 
Publishers Weekly

“Highly recommended for preparation of the future revolution.”
– Harper Reed, former CTO of Obama for America

“A brilliant book, full of mind-blowing tech drawn in highly believable fashion. Naam’s action sequences carry a brutal intensity, and every time you think he’ll finally let you breathe the stakes rise even higher.” 
Jason M. HoughNew York Times best-selling author of The Darwin Elevator

Crux is an outstanding speculative fiction adventure … in the same league as Michael Crichton and Daniel Suarez. Put it at the top of your summer reading list!”
Scientific American 

“Sublime. This book is speculative fiction at its finest.. Mr. Naam masterfully mobilizes the zeitgeist of contemporary political and tech culture.. Tempts readers with equal parts dread and optimism. This is not a book to be missed.”

Page of Reviews 

“Readers of Ramez Naam‘s techno-thriller Nexus will not want to miss the awesome sequel,Crux.” 
Kurzweil AI

Crux does the work of great science fiction. It makes the reader look closely and critically at what kind of world we’re building here and now.”
– Kent Peterson

“Naam’s writing is always strong, fluid and sure. With gripping, heart-pounding action scenes and muscle-binding tension normally reserved for horror stories, Crux is a book you don’t want to miss.”
Allways Unmended

“A worthy sequel that reads like a mash-up of Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy, Naam’s cyberpunk thriller is even better than the original.”
– SF Signal

“I found myself tearing through the pages as chapters flew by from different characters’ perspectives until the final pieces fall into place.If you enjoyed Nexus you will absolutely love Crux.”
– My Bookish Ways

Kurzbeschreibung

Shortlisted for the Prometheus Award 2014.

Six months have passed since the release of Nexus 5. The world is a different, more dangerous place.

In the USA, the freedom fighters of the Post-Human Liberation Front use Nexus to turn men and women into human time bombs aimed at the President and his allies.

The first blows in the war between human and posthuman have been struck.

-----

"His breathtaking expertise and confidence as a writer makes Naam the only serious successor to Michael Crichton working in the future history genre today.”
- Scott Harrison, author of Archangel

“A blisteringly paced technothriller that dives deeper and even better into the chunky questions raised by Nexus. This is a fabulous book, and it ends in a way that promises at least one more. Count me in.”
- Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Pirate Cinema

“Smart, thoughtful, and hard to drop, this richly nuanced sequel outshines its predecessor with a wide cast of characters and some complicated, uneasy questions about power, responsibility, and the future of humanity.”
- Publishers Weekly

5.0 von 5 Sternen A look into a possible future 4. Januar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I don't want to spoil the story to readers so I'll keep this general.

I am hihghly impressed by both Nexus and Crux. Coming from a programming background (even though I gave up on it because I was not exactly great) I researched the author after being a few chapter into Nexus. The whole setting gave off the impression that the author had clearly done a lot of research or came from a programming or biology background himself. I thought that the procedures and problems described in both books are plausible and made sense. The conspiracy aspect is way too close to reality for my taste when I think of the latest scandals concerning many countrie's intelligence agencies...but it fit in nicely with the plot.

Apart from the plausible (to me) scenario the writing style is both gripping and fast paced. The characters are neither black and white nor do they stagnate in their development.

Last but not least I want to say that I loved how religion, specifically buddhism, was woven into the plot. I am not a buddist myself but in my opinion this was well done and added to the character development.

Kudos to you, Mr. Naam! I liked your ideas (and writing style) of this possible future so much I am considering buying your non-fictional books as well and/or book about the topics of nanotech and augmentation. The Nexus story gave me a lot to think and daydream about. Thank you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen well-made follow-up 10. November 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed Nexus and it was clear that the novel left room for a continuation of events. Ramez Naam didn't disappoint us and Crux is a worthy follow-up to Nexus, again presenting us with complex characters and lots of shades of grey. The only bit of negative criticism might be a tendency to rake some of the characters through the coals to such an extreme that my willing suspension of the disbelief did begin to falter a bit. Basically though, I couldn't put the book down until I'd finished. I'm certainly curious as to what comes next ... the last paragraphs foreshadow interesting times ahead!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nexus 2 8. Juli 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent book! A real page turner full of a convincing recognition of some of the possibilities of the not so distant future. Written by someone who obviously knows what he's talking about and in such a way that I could follow the technologies even though I have no idea about any of them! This and Nexus I would recommend to anyone. My only question is will there be a book 3 ?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nicht schlecht für einen 2. Teil 30. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wieder sehr spannend und actionreich, genauso wie der erste Teil. Dennoch hat mich das Buch nicht ganz so sehr gefesselt wie Nexus, der Reiz des Neuen welches den ersten Roman ausgezeichnet hat, ist hier natürlich etwas verflogen.
Trotz allem hab ich das Buch verschlungen und werde auch mit Sicherheit den dritte Teil lesen.
Wem der erste Teil gefallen hat kann hier m.M.n. bedenkenlos zugreifen.
