Was looking forward to this so much....it started strong and then......nothing. I don't know maybe it was my mode so I may revisit it in another decade or so. Ha!
The first third was very soap opera-y and felt like a bad case of Bova crossed with Dynasty. I wanted more science fiction. I was disappointed.

I really liked the book although I agree that it seems like the authour tries to fill a lot more pages than necesarry. The whole excursus on Africa in the middel of the book is absolutley boring and not needed for the story (I skipped severeal pages here). It seems like he wantedt to fill more than 1000 pages at any costs. But still I liked the book. The setting is quite innovative and it seems like Schätzing has spend a lot of time talking to people who deal with futurology. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"In 2025, entrepreneur Julian Orley opens the first-ever hotel on the moon. But Orley Enterprises deals in more than space tourists--it also operates the world's only space elevator, which in addition to allowing the very wealthy to play tennis on the lunar surface connects Earth with the moon and enables the transportation of helium-3, the fuel of the future, back to the planet. Julian has invited twenty-one of the world's richest and most powerful individuals to sample his brand-new lunar accommodation, hoping to secure the finances for a second elevator. On Earth, meanwhile, cybercop Owen Jericho is sent to Shanghai to find a young female hacker known as Yoyo, who's been on the run since acquiring access to information that someone seems quite determined to keep quiet. As Jericho closes in on the girl and the conspiracy swirling around her, he finds mounting evidence that connects her to Julian Orley as well as to the entrepreneur's many competitors and enemies. Soon, the detective realizes that the lunar junket to Orley's hotel is in real and immediate danger."--Publisher website.… (more)
