I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was a sequel to the excellent "Counting Heads." In my books, Mind Over Ship isn't quite as good.

The story follows some of the same characters, as their world changes and adjusts to the events of the first book. The themes are darker - we get to see what life is like for the genetic underclass, and more of the implications of poverty in a world with rejuvenation treatment.

Sadly, the book doesn't have the same bounce as its predecessor. There's less humour. Some of the characters are a little wooden. The author's hand is apparent in some of the plot twists.

Regardless, it's still a good read. I recommend this to any sci fi fan who remembers cyberpunk fondly.
