Blindsight

by Peter Watts

If you like the jist of this story you should read "Hothead" by Simon Ings.

When you use a lot of technical terms in scifi, it should be done to add texture to the story,not to try and obscure it.
After having read about half of the book there just doesn't appear to be any substance to the story. There seemed to be no blinding revelations into humanity (or alien-ness). All a pity really as its the type of story that has a lot of scope to develop in any direction.
