    35 StarsThis is the kind of science fiction novel that will appeal to people who don't typically read science fiction Even though the story revolves around futuristic technology this is of a story of people than science I would even be tempted to classify this novel as literary fiction rather than science fiction This novel explores themes of determination ethics innovation and relationships The writing is smooth easy to read and straightforward Personally my favourite aspect of the story was the relationship between Niko and Tass which felt very authentic and worked very well on an emotional levelIf you like myself read The Wizard Killer prior to reading to this novel you must leave all your preconceived expectations at the door In many ways this book is the polar opposite of the serialized fantasy The distinctions between these two works truly demonstrates Dreece's range as an author Again let me repeat this novel should not be compared with The Wizard Killer Doing so would do a great disservice to story of The Man of Cloud 9 which is a very different piece of fictionThis story takes place in a near distant future with advance technology that still feels familiar to our present day The technology itself described in the novel is enticing and feels very possible I would have loved to spend even time with this technology and the other creative technologies imagined in this future As I understand the author has a background in software development with experience working with Silicon Valley companies such as Microsoft Dreece undoubtedly drew on his own experiences when writing this novel The story reads almost like biopic Stretching over the course of 18 years this novel is slower paced providing short glimpses into the life and career of the genius inventor Niko Rafaelo At times I almost forgot I was reading fiction Niko has some similarities to the renown creator of Apple Steve Jobs although they certainly also have their differences While both men are drive genius inventors the fictional Niko has far a compassionate side than the infamously cold Jobs The storyline speeds up towards the second half as the ethical dilemmas of the nanobot technology arise I would recommend this book to readers who appreciate fiction with emotional depth and thought provoking explorations of future technologyI received an ARC edition of the novel from the author in exchange for an honest review As always my opinions are entirely my own

    The Man of Cloud Nine is a definite page turner It follows the life and accomplishments of Niko Rafaelo a technological genius who is especially driven in furthering nano cloud technology His motives are good; he is trying to help heal and advance humanity as it attempts to recover from catastrophic environmental damage to the planet We see Niko’s life in series of watershed moments over the course of eighteen years His bold research becomes a race against time as old enemies and failing health both threaten to keep his astounding vision from ushering in a whole new age for humanity I loved the pacing It was really dramatic and I was often on the edge of my seat hoping for Niko to succeedThe other thing I really liked about the book was just how possible everything seemed This story takes place in a not so distant future and the characters even given their semi apocalyptic environment all behave in ways that are entirely familiar Humanity is no or less enlightened from having suffered a near planet ending event However humanity hasn’t counted on Niko Rafaelo and his ability to see and create far beyond the realm of familiarOne other thing I thought was very inspired in Dreece’s story telling was this habit of Niko’s to always compartmentalize his life This compartmentalizing carried through all the way to the end of the book We could never fully anticipate what was coming next because it was Niko’s habit to never tell anyone all of what he was thinking or planning It was an aspect of his genius and we as readers are subjected to it as much as the characters in the book are But this compartmentalization also ended up being one of the aspects that I felt limited the story We were not privy to much that happened in the other compartments of Niko’s life I feel like the story would have been even poignant had we had a chance to see how Niko was as a father or as a man in love or as a man with past that had left him with a powerful enemy The ending also was not as powerful as I would have liked It felt rushed and not as neatly tied up as I was hoping forHaving said all of the above I was very impressed with my first introduction to Adam Dreece’s work and I am definitely looking forward to reading Lucky for me there is uite a lot out there to choose from I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a thought provoking read

    Wow I absolutely loved this book Rene Auberjonois was right this is a uniue and insightful story with a fantastic take on the future world grounded in modern technology and very realistic I absolutely loved following Niko in his visionary ventures dealing with a world that had become afraid of technology and had banned certain lines of development because of their fear Adam Dreece creates a very realistic future dystopia where technology has been halted in many aspects because we grew faster than we were ready got burned and were afraid to take further risk Being the wife and mother of tech heads I really appreciated Niko's frustration with regular people and his desire to keep his worlds separate The crazy risks he took because he believed so inexplicably in what he was doing his single minded focus and even in the way that his behaviors alienated him from those around him and put everything at risk all rang true One of my frustrations with a lot of stories is that the plot is often based on lack of communication and yeah it's realistic but at the same time the characters don't demonstrate why they are inefficient and I find myself yelling at these characters because the problem is so obvious that even they must know that it is their own darn fault and should stop doing that stupid thing For example If Gibbs would just take 2 seconds to explain instead of expecting everyone to just trust him we would lose half of NCIS But in Man of Cloud 9 we understand Niko so well and even though he knows he is creating a lot of his own problems we actually get why he does it And no it isn't just because he is a techno geek and lacks social skills It is so much deliciously complex This story was so delightful in its depth and focus that I could not wait to give it to my eldest son the tech head for Christmas Dreece expertly weaves a story with multiple layers The technical struggle is enough to excite any Sci fi enthusiast the moral dilemma is a teasing thriller throughout to draw us forward and the complex relationship struggles are enough for any fan of drama to stay hooked On a side note I got a glorious tickle when he mentioned The Yellow Hoods a couple of times in passing as this is actually another series that Adam Dreece wrote that falls in the Fantasy realm I also got a laugh when he mentioned a fellow author friend Angela B Chrysler It was fun seeing how he pulled from his real world and added it into The Man of Cloud 9I must mention that the editing did suffer a bit towards the end but not to the point that the story lost understanding and not really enough to pull me out of the story

    It's funny I was asked to read and review this book My husband and I have a little place on the Arkansas river that we retired to We call it Cloud9 because it's our happy place So I was excited to get this book Niko's cloud9 was the production after the release of NanoCloud8 so not the same meaning but I believe the same idea We know we have to keep pushing the boundaries of science and technology or we could lose all we have gained because our base will be outdated uickly There are always a few highly motivated men and women with ideas that could change our world usually for the better There are always a few geniuses that are so narcissistic that they think everything should be done their way no matter the cost In The Man of Cloud 9 we get to watch the machinations of both sides Have you ever watched someone as they do something they have a passion for even if you don't understand what they are doing? It's like watching plants grow butterflies be born and children light up with knowledge they understand and embrace Even though parts of this book were technical the underlying story was very basic and enduring Remember all technology has it's beginnings in someone's brain It's our job to make our world better by following our passion unless it's to be an assassin or a terroristA great story but even genius minds need to learn the difference between passed and past Big pet peeve

    Not Kindle Unlimited and got it from one of my freebie sites that don't show up as the ones do that link to from my freebie sites As an ex computer tech and also reader of sci fi found it definitely interesting Have read the writer's Yellow Hoods collection including the preuel so wanted to see what else type subjects he wrote on


  7. says:

    The biography of a man who changed a world we don't know The Man of Cloud 9 isn't what you're expecting on several levels Dreece presents you a character that you won't get to know well any than you got to know Steve Jobs It's set in our future but we don't explore the way we would in typical science fiction Instead we either pick up on what the characters take for granted or we wish we could kick the doors down and see for ourselves And yet for all its remote nature the tone is intimate A life story written by someone who cared for this man for those who lived this history You and I just happened upon something that might well be none of our business on our way through a world gate But are you really the boring responsible time traveller who drops the book and walks away? Here there be real people Also concepts that challenge genres and mysteries that will set you mulling ranting and wondering If you read and loved the Wizard Killer like I did you might hate this book The narratives have a violently different style and focus and pace Wizard Killer will inspire fanbases This is a life story with a maddening ending that doesn't answer your uestions just as the lives of geniuses will always leave you guessing and interpreting and vilifying But with Dreece you're in good hands if not precisely safe He will keep you turning pages He doesn't shy away from difficult This is the book to pick up if you're looking for some sci fi that isn't proper sci fi which makes it the very best kind

    Had I not spoken with Adam and purchased this book upon conversation I would never have guessed this book was written by the same man who wrote the yellow hood series I was completely blown away by the difference in writing but it was a very good read It is kind of like a biography mixed with loads of tech I'm not normally one to read books such as this so I will tell you now if you desire action this is so not the book for you However I found a very compelling story behind it following Niko's life The time line is mildly confusing at the beginning but as you get farther into the novel it becomes a little easier to grasp I found myself wanting to know about what was happening with him while it follows Niko's life primarily there were some definite twists that smacked me in the face One of which I did predict I'll try to skip spoilers but I feel Adam did well in hiding the biggest twist and saving it for the end now that I have finished the book I find I am left with wanting to know exactly what Niko did I have a few uestions about the tech that Niko founded than there are answers however I believe that leaving a reader wanting to know is what keeps them coming back for

    It’s rare to find a hard science fiction novel that is so personal so intimate In The Man of Cloud 9 the tech is an expression of everything protagonist Niko Rafaelo is and society expresses itself through his tech Because of this even those of us who are easily bored by technobabble will stay engaged and have trouble putting the book down It’s all thematically connected Even in scenes that could have easily been marred by dry info dumps Dreece parcels out the necessary information through genuine character momentsLiterary elegance aside there are some fun moments too with nods to existing sci fi fandoms and the occasional pun character name The main antagonist an entertaining Darth Vader type in ways than one She is possibly the only weakness of the story with a motivation that doesn’t entirely fit with her MO That said real people are often motivated by their own damage rather than logically and Dreece gives the reader the impression there’s to her story than what we see on the surfaceI cried a little at the end That doesn’t happen often A great read
