by James P. Hogan PROLOGUE Low, black, and menacing, its angular metallic surfaces bristling with sensors and protuberances, the robot resembled, if anything, a walking warship. It moved on six legs projecting outward and downward from its underside in pairs, like sprung arches. Its front consisted of a blunt, turret-like head, flanked by a pair of rotary-jointed grasping appendages terminating in four-point, independently movable claws.

BUG PARK

James Hogan delves into the world of micro robotics, corporate greed, and the realm of virtual gaming to create this extremely entertaining novel.

Let me sum the book up like this; teenage friendship, a cheating step mother, an easy going scientific father, the fathers military minded best friend and business partner, micro sized robots ran by DNC: Direct Neural Coupling, Ex-business partner wishing to steal the patent for DNC.

This book was much more entertaining than I had expected.The story starts with a bang and ends with an atomic blast.Bug Park is a light read and comes across a bit different than other works by Hogan.I was truly upset that I ran out of pages to read. James Hogan has been added to my must read authors list.

I highly recommend this book.

James Hogan has written some of the best Science fiction many of his books are classics in my opinion. This book was an early view of nano mechanisms, and where it could go. People excited about drones and telecontrol can get some new ideas. A well written action packed thriller.

Although somewhat lacking in serious plot and character developement, and in technical details (admittedly there couldn't be a lot,as this is an excursion into "fantasy techno"),it still makes a good read to fill a few odd hours with nothing better to do.A great gift for Christmas or a birthday for the younger set, but a little shallow for the adult reader. Hogan might have done a little better with more action sequences in "Bug Park" itself.

I originally read this years ago and always liked it. Some aspects are a bit dated now (for example, everyone doesn't have a cell phone), but still a great read.

This is the best movie I have ever read! That was the impression I was left with after I finished this book in only two days.
Although all of the themes in this book have been done in numerous ways and different contexts, none of them have come together with this level of impact. From the title, I confused this book with Larry Niven's Dream Park series Dream ParkThe Barsoom Project (Dream Park)The California Voodoo Game: A Dreampark Novel (Dream Park Book 3)The Moon Maze Game (Dream Park). I expected another variation of VR novel - boy, was I wrong!

The reason I referred to this as a movie... Remember back to when you saw the very first Jurassic Park movieJurassic Park - the impact of first seeing the dinosaurs, the high tech, the math & science seamlessly but extensively integrated into the plot, the vistas and panoramas, the bad guys, the kids, the oohing and aahing - the running and screaming... It is all here, with visual imagery that rarely comes out of the written page.

Oh, just to get an accurate context... Substitute a praying mantis for the T-Rex.
I rarely find the time for pleasure reading these days, so the books I pick have to be good. All too often, I'll pick up something that sounds good on the cover, only to be disappointed somewhere, and leave it half-read. But not so with novels by James P. Hogan. Since discovering his work in "The Genesis Machine" in '78, I have MADE the time to read each new novel. "Bug Park" was no disappointment. The story line is interesting, the characters are charming and believable, and the technological underpinnings are largely believable. Definitely a fun, feel-good novel. Though I am still skeptical that Direct Neural Connection is "near future" technology (~25 years away), the novel has captivated my interest in micro-robotics and nano technology! Having recently finished it, it makes me want to re-read Genesis Machine (Hogan uses DNC technology in that novel, but in a different way). Thanks, Mr. Hogan, for another great novel!
