This was my penultimate Powers novel I haven t yet managed to get hold of a copy of Prisoner s Dilemma its immediate predecessor It is a book which I had been looking forward to because of its musical content and some interesting reviews but for me it did not uite meet my high expectations perhaps because Powers just had too many ideas to shoehorn in and the result is over long and uite hard work to read I am not sure I fully understood the scientific content eitherThere are three main characters the main narrator is Jan O Deigh a librarian whose job involves answering uestions from the public so perhaps a human forerunner of Google Alexa et al Two of her uestioners are Stuart Ressler who spots an error in her daily today in history piece so she is a proto Wikipedia too Franklin Todd Ressler s colleague in his night shift job in a financial company s computer centre also approaches her wanting to know what Ressler s past involved Ressler turns out to have been a brilliant but somewhat erratic researcher in genetics back in the mid 1950s when the first attempts were being made to understand DNA encoding A young female colleague introduces him to Bach s Goldberg variations which is the other main linking theme In the modern part of the story Jan starts visiting the two men in the data centre starting an affair with Todd and getting increasingly drawn to Ressler and his genetic puzzlesAs always Powers devotes a lot of space to exploring his technical scientific and musical subject matter not necessarily with academic rigour but detailed enough to get an understanding of why he is so interested in them For me though the human aspects of the story were a little weak so I don t think this one will ever be my favourite Powers novel Buddhist Modernities yet managed to get hold of a copy of Prisoner s Dilemma its immediate predecessor It is a book which I had been looking forward to because of its musical content and some interesting reviews but for me it did not uite meet my high expectations perhaps because Powers just had too many ideas to shoehorn in and the result is over long and uite hard work to read I am not sure I fully understood the scientific content eitherThere are three main characters the main narrator is Jan O Deigh a librarian whose job involves answering uestions from the public so perhaps a human forerunner of Google Alexa et al Two of her uestioners are Stuart Ressler who spots an error in her daily today in history piece so she is a proto Wikipedia too Franklin Todd Ressler s colleague in his night shift job in a financial company s computer centre also approaches her wanting to know what Ressler s past involved Ressler turns out to have been a brilliant but somewhat erratic researcher in genetics back in the mid 1950s when the first attempts were being made to understand DNA encoding A Mother Clap's Molly House (Methuen Drama) young female colleague introduces him to Bach s Goldberg variations which is the other main linking theme In the modern part of the story Jan starts visiting the two men in the data centre starting an affair with Todd and getting increasingly drawn to Ressler and his genetic puzzlesAs always Powers devotes a lot of space to exploring his technical scientific and musical subject matter not necessarily with academic rigour but detailed enough to get an understanding of why he is so interested in them For me though the human aspects of the story were a little weak so I don t think this one will ever be my favourite Powers novel
