Pink Noise by Leonid Korogodski - a review

Guest Author - Laura Lehman

Nathi is one of the best brain doctors in existence despite having lost his own generations before. He is posthuman, an entity living entirely within cyberspace. His current charge is a comatose girl with extensive brain damage. As he tries to repair her mind, he finds something unexpected-- the Wish Fairy. This cyberbeing was created to defeat the Wish, a virus who sole purpose is to enslave all posthumans-- Nathi included. As he learns how he was controlled, Nathi and the girl formulate an escape from their high tech prison. By combining his mind with the girl's, they flee into the martian night to fight a battle that is both mental and physical.

The ideas behind Pink Noise are thought provoking-- digitizing human minds and repairing minds through digital means are interesting ideas. The hints at the bigger picture outside of Nathi's predicament add depth to the plot and anchor the story somewhat. The biggest drawback to Pink Noise is confusion. It wasn't until almost the end that I understood just what the Wish Fairy was about and many times I couldn't figure out just what Nathi was doing.

My Recommendation
I have mixed feelings about Pink Noise. On the one hand, the ideas behind the story are fascinating. But at the same time, the confusion I had with some parts definitely took away from my enjoyment. If you have an interest in posthuman ideas, Pink Noise is probably a good read for you.
