I like this book but none of the reviewers I see here seemed to have the same reaction I had to the rst off, it is very well written. There are different story threads, following different characters, as they end up in the same put - a future Tel Aviv. It mixes recognizable info with future info - firmly letting you know this is the future but it is a future you can envision. It was a bit confusing at first but it settled down and became clearer after a bit. The future it describes is interesting and ever, the book felt very much like it was setting up this world. If I found out this was going to be the first in a series, it would totally create sense. Everything built to an ending and we did obtain a kind of ending. We see why these people moved together to be there and we see that a lot of of them were manipulated in a method to obtain there to do what required to obtain done to have that scene.But the end didn't provide closure. I understand now where they were headed and for what. But it isn't "Ok, that is resolved." It doesn't feel that method at all. At the end I felt "ok... so what does that mean? What is going to happen now?"I am giving it the 4 stars I wish to give if we are going to obtain another book with some more information. But take it with a grain of salt. If this is the end all and be all... it feels sed on the other reviews, maybe it is only me. But I need some closure. Or some direction as to where these people are going from here.
Welcome to a future globe and have fun trying to explain this book to your mates after you read it. Tidhar has made a globe of sentient beings including cyborgs, Robots, data vampires, and most humans have a unique node the connects to the "conversation." The conversation seems to be like Twtter on steroids connecting a being with others across the universe.
This is a beautifully written... well, it is really a number of well connected short stories that form a larger narrative. I loved the method the author showed the reader the future, explaining only by exposition. I was tempted to give it only 4 stars because of the unexpected ending. Read it and you'll search out. Oh, I sailed through this, carried by the writing and awesome characters and setting(s).
Reads at times like an arc of linked short stories rather than a novel , but they'reengaging stories so that's not a disappointment .The book's characters are members of the community surrounding the base of a zone elevator in the middle of a Tel Aviv centuries in the future. Its broad topic , in this zone age Holy Land is how we fulfil our human need for spirituality when it is impossible not to recognise religion as a human build the gods you need and you fill your universe(s) with the appropriate myths . Tidhar loves his characters and their setting is rich and carnal their technology sufficiently advanced to be indistinguishable from magic.
Disclaimer: I recieived an electronic Advanced Review Copy of the book from NetGalley. I don't believe it affected my review, and it's possible that the book has changed slightly upon publication.Central Station tells the stories of several interconnected people in the vicinity of a zone port, in a future globe filled with incomprehensibly strong AIs, cyborgs, biotechnology, and a lot of other tropes of far future took a small while to obtain into the book... not only is there the usual sense of dislocation and unfamiliarity with the specific info of the author's projected future that comes with a lot of SF novels, but also the zone the story was set in (Tel Aviv) is one that I have very small familiarity with. So, in the early parts of the stories, I was struggling to absorb info and start to build a connection with the happenings going on. Still, before too long, the differences ceased to be confusing... but not entirely. For this is very much a book where you're constantly being introduced to strange concepts, but it's done in a positive e book isn't one complete story, it's a collection of short stories (many previously published, although I don't think I read any of them), mostly each focusing on various people (although a few of the later stories cycle back and seem to at least indirectly focus on resolving the story arcs of characters from the previous stories). In a lot of ways, the book reminded me of Accelerando, except, instead of following one family through a long stretch of time, it follows a dozens of people in one location. Some of the general technological millieu are also shared between the books, as well as a certain similarity of approach... Central Station is a book that throws ideas at the reader, ideas that could potentially help stories or novels on their own, but instead we only obtain brief references. Plenty of times while reading this book, I'd come across a reference and think, "Ooh, I wish to hear more about THAT!" but I was already going somewhere else, and this was just another part of the future I saw in passing. Sometimes we would eventually come back to these ideas and obtain more information, at others we were left unsatisfied. In a lot of ways, it reminded me of being a tourist in a strange country, seeing something interesting and craning your neck and wanting to learn more about it but you're already on a tour bus going somewhere else. Considering the book is a story of a city around a spaceport, this is a particularly appropriate feeling. And it deals with both cool technological concepts and enough true human problems (that mostly spawn from the technological) that I think it's well worth a read for fans of SF, although it may be a bit intimidating for newer readers. Again, like Accelerando, but, that book was one of my favorites, so to me, the comparison is a tag in this book's favor... it isn't quite as rapid-fire with ideas, and it doesn't feel derivative, just a related approach and "feel."The short story format did have a few flaws, of course. One or two of the individual tales I found myself skimming because I just couldn't obtain as into it as much as the others, and, also, it's not quite as narratively satisfying. There are plot threads that weave throughout the whole book that do obtain some resolution, but a few of them tended towards a situation where what was actually event still seemed to be a small confusing. And, overall, I was craving a bit more sense of a single solid storyline... at the ending, I didn't really feel like a novel ended, it felt more like they ran out of stories. It also felt a small on the short side, overall. They package a lot in, and I don't think it's quite short enough that it'd be called a novella rather than a novel, but it felt short enough that I briefly wondered if a story might have been left out until publication (although I don't think that's the case).Still, leaving the audience wanting more is generally speaking a better tactic than wearing out your welcome, and to that degree it succeeded. Were part-stars available, I'd probably place it somewhere closer to 4.5 stars because I quite enjoyed what I got. And, I wish more. I'd love to see an actual tightly plotted novel in this setting, to perhaps discover some of the ideas that didn't obtain as much time as I would have hoped.I was able to read it for free, and in electronic format (which I enjoy, but is not my preference), and in such cases, one of the questions I always ask myself is, "Considering I've already read it, would I buy a physical copy to have for myself for rereads?" In this case... I think I would, although given the shortness I'd personally be inclined to wait in the hopes of a mass shop paperback (my preferred format). Or, perhaps, if a full novel in the setting was coming out and I wanted to reread the first in preparation.
The application definitely needs work. I can't click on pictures. I can't read bios and all profiles of missing kids come up as errors. We need a better system than this. People rely on centers like this to stay on top of things. I looked for this application because I compare Jane and John Does with missing person's reports in my free time. But so far Pinterest is more reliable. Please fix this app. It could seriously save lives. I found the application in my local paper with a missing kid posted on it. Why promote the application when the application doesn't work?
I downloaded to obtain updates or at least be able to have a lost I can pull up on my own of missing children. The images are not visible. Error notice for images. And it doesn't have the notifications I thought it would like Amber alerts sent to my phone or something
Everyone with kids should have this application - hope to God it's never needed. Had to reenter information twice because there isn't "save & continue" ability. Suggest if you don't have all info, enter a placeholder of anything then go back and edit. Also, physician's phone# is not showing in PDF but is in application so some glitch there.
I gave this 2 stars only because 1 star means "Hated It." I didn't hate it but it will not fit my purpose. I downloaded the application for the purpose of having an available list of missing kids in case I ran into a situation where I may suspect I've seen the kid & required to check. The lists containing the pics of the kids are unavailable & are all broken or missing links. It just wouldn't support in that situation.
Solid app... A well place together app! Amazing addition to my Nexus 5 from UCO's first foray into the Android device application building world. There are a few things that I think could be tightened up: 1) on the drop down menu, I think the private category of "MY CENTRAL" should be highest instead of "CENTRAL INFORMATION", which is probably not going to be of amazing significance to everyday traffic; 2) there are quite a bit of delays when accessing info at times, but I have a feeling that this issue is beyond the application and in the background somewhere; 3) the graphics could use a bit of work -- as nice as they are, the current motif of Google Now's flat card design is what everyone is shooting for, even Ives copied it for his iOS7 flat theme. Overall, I can't search a reason as to why I would not give this application 5 stars, though. Well done! And I was just saying yesterday how tired I was of logging into UCO's www services from my mobile... (And tell whoever is in charge of the mobile page for D2L, they need to take that thing back to the drawing board.)
Finally! So glad that there is now an application to "replace" uConnect! Since uConnect is not compatible with mobile devices, this application has been DESPERATELY required for quite some time, now. I'm sure I speak for many--if not most--students when I say thank you thank you THANK YOU!
We are fresh customers. I am computer literate. Application does not allow us deposit our federal tax refund. Error notice says that the payment exceeds $500. Don't even understand this error notice in that we are trying to deposit a federal tax check into our checking or savings account, NOT MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. USAA Banking application does not ask for a check number when making a deposit like this application does. One of my first questions before opening an acc was whether they had a phone application for depositing checks. Major FAIL.
This application works fine but the bank itself is worthless. Deposited cash in atm 3 weeks ago and the cash never showed up in my account. Opened a dispute/investigation that has determined im a liar and necer deposited the money. Lost 500$ and will never ise this bank again.
