Anders only managed E-Prime in the first three words. I'll try to do
I enjoyed DA as well. It has a reasonably good description of an
economy based on nanotech. I would have paid the price of the book
for the scene in which we get introduced to the "young ladies primer"
from the sub-title of the book, but on pedagogical, not
nanotechnological grounds. I didn't like the ending at all, (actually
the last third or so) as the story gets lost in meanderings about
group minds and other miscellany.
