Talk about Circuit of Heaven

This was a very enjoyable read. I have read almost everything in this genre and rarely find a gem that is as unique and this was. Sure it is a love story but the future world is Solvent Green meets the Matrix. Choices have a whole new meaning and life and death have their lines blurred. I have lent this to many people and they all liked it though for different reasons. Enjoy!
If you think you could still enjoy Romeo and Juliet, this story might be for you. If that play makes you think "Stupid kids", you should skip this book.

The setting of this story is weak. Almost everyone has voluntarily given up life in the real world to live in a virtual world. The technology is not plausibly described and it seems even less likely that so many people would actually enter the world.

So much for the setting. The rest of the story is a love story. It may be based on Romeo and Juliet. I can't really spoil the ending, since I didn't get that far. I got to the point where I realized it was possible that the lovers were being set up to die in a tragic fashion, and I didn't really care if they did.
4 1/2 stars actually. There may have been other authors (such as, for example, Neal Stephenson) who have created a cyber or a virtual world; however, Dennis Danvers has done a brilliant, masterful job in this story of the "Bin," that real (so to speak) virtual, 3-D reality to which almost everyone has been uploaded, and from which, no one returns. Life in the Bin is seemingly without want or lack of good health or abundance; yet, there is a small percentage of the population who stayed on earth. However, the actual cities, the roads, the bridges etc. have fallen into disrepair...those who stayed on earth literally scrounge and cannibalize civilization's materialistic remains. With life thus depicted, the author has created a futuristic Romeo and Juliet scenario with characters named Nemo and Justine who play out the human drama of "falling" in love amidst the muck and mire of family secrets, cultural taboos, so called religious fundamentalists, and mind-boggling futuristic technolodgy etc. all of which seem to conspire against the young couple's fulfilling of their deep love.

Those who left the "real" life for the seemingly eternal "heaven" of the Bin did so for various reasons...some folks just wanted to maintain a state of youthfulness forever...some were facing serious illnesses and on and on. While life in the Bin is almost idyllic, some of those fundamentalist religious folk who stayed with the real earth conspire to bring about the Bin's demise, which would include the 12 billion or so who reside there. Little do our Nemo/Romeo and Justine/Juliet know that they are to be major players as this drama unfolds, as they are each occupied with events of their past which are very unsettled or unresolved. As each of them grows into the fullness of adulthood/personhood, the reader is given the privilege of being inside the minds of Nemo and Justine as each resolves the crisis of their existence.

This story is just so cleverly creative and even provocative. There were some moments when I felt a bit confused, but some of that is possibly due to the quantum jump this story requires of the reader several times through out the book. And, it could be said that the book is aimed at a younger audience; however, Circuit of Heaven is plenty grownup! Thank you for the ride Mr. Danvers!
I first read this book when I was in 8th grade (which is probably a tad too young for the adult themes in this book!!). This was the book that taught me to like reading. I loved this book then and I love this book now - I reread it every so often because I love the world, the characters and the story. This was totally unique to me when I first read it since I had never read anything like it, then as I grew up, I developed a passion for dystopian novels. It only occurred to me recently that this is a dystopian novel - this was my first taste of the genre! I wish I could meet the author and tell him how much I love this book. It's such a great read. I love the concept of the story and I feel the love story within it is done very well. There are a few parts that drag a little bit, but the awesome characters and the way it all comes together makes up for it. I highly recommend reading Circuit of Heaven!

Most science fiction writers would find that a premise like the Bin, a virtual reality world people shed their bodies to enter permanently, demands a kind of large-scale treatment with a vast cast of characters and enormous moral dilemmas writ large against a sparkling, futuristic background. Danvers resists this temptation, instead keeping his story small and intimate and focusing on the characters as they live out their day-to-day lives. The bigger issues (e.g. "what is reality") are mostly swept to one side -- while there are probably people who ponder such issues in Danvers' universe, most people just get on with their lives, just as most people have always done. The story draws you in and, while a bit predictable in spots, is nonetheless engrossing and enjoyable. In a way, this novel reminded me of what you might get if you took James P. Hogan's "Realtime Interrupt," removed all the nuts-and-bolts details that are Hogan's trademark (and, for me, enjoyable in their own way), and injected a large dose of humanity. The only thing that really bugged me was the continuous reference to Aimee Mann, which Danvers obviously only threw in because he's a fan of hers and which for me served only to narrow down Justine's appearance rather too precisely for my taste. I think that particular aspect of the story would have worked better with an invented musician. On the whole, though, the book delivers solidly on its modest ambitions and is an pleasant read.
