Echoes of Another by Chandra K. Clarke is a science fiction novel that lays out a convincing picture of our world in the not-so-distant future. The story’s main focus is a new technology and its implications for society. There isn’t really a central character but rather six characters whose stories unfold in separate narratives. The characters seem unrelated at first but, as things go on, we begin to see connections between them. Each character is involved in the new technology in one way or another. Through the viewpoints of the six characters, we get a complete picture of how one technical advancement, if not properly controlled, can radically reshape cultures around the world, and not necessarily for the better.

I enjoyed Echoes of Another by Chandra K. Clarke for the most part. At first, I had trouble with the way the plot jumped from one character’s story to the next, but I got used to it quickly. As each character’s story developed and the stakes got higher, I found the technique compelling and easier to keep up with. The author’s writing style is clear and easy to follow. I also found the science used within the story to be very convincing. Many futuristic technologies are touched on that felt like logical extensions of what’s going on today. I found the author’s vision for the world of tomorrow to be one of my favorite things about Echoes of Another. My other favorite thing about this book is that it’s just a really good story told in a way that felt fresh and even cutting edge.
