    This is book 2 but if you read book 1 you know it pretty much wrapped up it's story. However, some groundwork was laid so that we could revisit this incredible near-future world with follow up characters. We follow CIA agent Diana as she's embroiled in intrigue and action in her quest to keep "the feed" safe from malicious hands. Great mystery set in a relevant near-future world.

    Oh. My. This is so good. So so good. This is the kind of book you wait for... why? Do you like big premise books? Check. Do you like great writing that doesn’t get in the way of the story? Check. Do you like books where you can’t put them down? Check. Do yourself a favor and stop reading this and just get it. You won’t be disappointed.

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A freelance spy in the near future takes on a job and finds out it is darker than she thought, with all kinds of ulterior motives. I didn't find the future projections all that interesting. Your mileage may vary.

    More action. More suspense. More intrigue. More of everything in the second installment of the Analog Series, Borderless. It’s all about the feed and the clash and wisdom of two women—Diana and Helen—who keep the present, future and the ultimate destiny of the world in the fist of their attacks and counterattacks. Because, The feed was the information infrastructure that empowered nearly every human activity and on which nearly every human activity relied. A talisman that lent mere mortals the pow More action. More suspense. More intrigue. More of everything in the second installment of the Analog Series, Borderless. It’s all about the feed and the clash and wisdom of two women—Diana and Helen—who keep the present, future and the ultimate destiny of the world in the fist of their attacks and counterattacks. Because, The feed was the information infrastructure that empowered nearly every human activity and on which nearly every human activity relied. A talisman that lent mere mortals the power of demigods. Doctors used it for diagnosis. Brokers used it to place bets. Physicists used it to explore the mysteries of quantum entanglement. Farmers used it to grow food. Kindergarteners used it to learn the alphabet. The feed was power, water, transportation, communication, entertainment, public services, relationships, industry, media, government, security, finance, and education. Without it the churning torrent of human civilization would cease. Praise to Eliot Peper, the author of Cumulus, True Blue, Neon Fever Dream, The Uncommon Series, Bandwidth, and now another near-future thriller Borderless, the second novel in the Analog Series. If you haven’t read anything coming from Eliot Peper’s super brain, correct that now and grab any of his book. His writing is intelligent, seducing, enchanting, like multi-colored waterfall cascading over the central core of your brain. Read this: You were the center of gravity in a dance that you were observing but not participating in. And read this: When you owned your own decisions, you owned your own sins. And this: The overall impression it left was of something designed but not engineered, a marriage of botanical growth and human imagination. And then read the whole of Borderless, not skipping a single word because you don’t want to shatter the glass ball of magical writing in front of which we bow our heads pleased and humbled. Overwhelmed with the beauty and the rich texture of his writing style, I need to say this one last thing (or maybe two). Many great authors are out there but there are not so many great authors who are true artists. Eliot Peper is one of them. Whether you are just a reader, a budding or established writer or an author, read Eliot Peper. Read him slowly and with tender care. Enjoy the process and LEARN. You don’t want to miss the taste of the near future and live it now in your imagination before it will become real in a few years or decades; you don’t want to be excluded from the privilege of knowing one of the best composers of the written word who walks, breaths, dreams and lives in the same feed as you do. That would be a shame. Bernard Jan www.bernardjan.com

    Spectacular. It's not out yet (I read the uncorrected proof) but Eliot just gets better and better with each book. Riveting, relevant, and wonderful.

    When we last left the Analog series at the end of its initial entry, Bandwidth, that story was pretty well wrapped up, with the groundwork laid for a follow-up. I expected to drop back into Dag's life and follow him as he handled the ensuing situation. But Eliot Peper had a better idea. Yes, let's follow that lead, but let's look at it from a different angle. So instead of Dag, we're in the head of Diana, the former CIA agent Dag used to get intel and, as we left off Bandwidth, a promising roman When we last left the Analog series at the end of its initial entry, Bandwidth, that story was pretty well wrapped up, with the groundwork laid for a follow-up. I expected to drop back into Dag's life and follow him as he handled the ensuing situation. But Eliot Peper had a better idea. Yes, let's follow that lead, but let's look at it from a different angle. So instead of Dag, we're in the head of Diana, the former CIA agent Dag used to get intel and, as we left off Bandwidth, a promising romantic interest. We may be in a near-future world where ecological disaster has caused tectonic shifts in society, economics, politics, and culture, and the entire world, beyond the borders of its nation states, relies on The Feed -- the internet structured as an amalgam of social media feeds, implanted into people's heads and into the electronics of, well, everything. But Peper never forgets that all else aside, what makes for good storytelling is character. And so Diana, who was an interesting supporting player in Bandwidth, becomes the firebrand protagonist of Borderless. How does this play out? Imagine if you will a plot twist that requires Diana to get from San Francisco to DC despite a nationwide (worldwide) blackout, where all electronic technology has ceased to function, which because of The Feed means, as we've seen, pretty much everything. All Diana really needs to do to move the plot along is get into an airplane that predates all this technology, say a WWII-era fighter. So in the hands of your average action novelist, this would be one line or one paragraph -- Diana rode her bike to the marina, took a sailboat across the Bay, swam to shore, ran across the airport, and got into the Lockheed Whatever that was waiting for her. Simple enough, 'nuff said. But Peper takes that one line and makes a whole chapter out of it. Nell, who provides all this for Diana, and who has been a peripheral presence to this point, gets to not only shepherd Diana to the plane, but to reveal her own character (perhaps in anticipation of becoming a major figure in a future entry, since she runs the establishment the series is named for, the bar/club called Analog). We also learn more about Diana in this chapter, even though this is already late in the book. Peper even has the wherewithal to add a couple of objective correlatives to help deepen the literary side of his action story, notably one about a peregrine falcon hunting a pigeon (he makes liberal use, and effective use, of objective correlatives throughout). Folks, this is the stuff of good writing. And good writing elevates anything, even a good dystopian post-apocalyptic techno-action thriller like this. Add to that some timely topics -- the ongoing debates about the role of social media in shaping our last election, the issue of net neutrality, and the globalization of society, culture, and commerce, with the concept of nationalism and borders inexorably heading toward anachronism (and currently the hotly contested subject of pushback) -- and you've got yourself one dandy series happening here. Looking forward to more, although the difference this time is that, while the story is brought to conclusion, there is no obvious loose thread leading to the next entry (well, there are a couple of possibilities, but nothing as direct as where we left off in Bandwidth). Thanks to NetGalley for providing an advance copy of this book for review.

    The compelling core of most of Peper’s books for me is the relevance his near-term fiction holds to my current world. Borderless is no exception.

Borderless is no exception. I just finished the uncorrected proof and, again, was left creating solid connections to everything I am thinking about on a daily basis. The main character, Diana, gets pulled through from Bandwidth - the other book in his Analog series - and after playing a supporting role in the previous book, takes center stage and drags you into a frenzied, believable, high velocity mission chock full of all the psychological struggles of a war-torn, immigrant / spy and all the complexities you can imagine would tag along with that kind of history. And that’s really the best part - as you get to know Diana, she becomes another flawed but wonderful part of the harried world he’s already crafted in Bandwidth whose main characters also become part of the chase in a way that deeply connects you to all of the characters - as well as a few references to players from other great books he’s written. It’s those welcome references that remind you you’re just looking at a small, but incredibly enjoyable part of a much bigger world that Peper’s creating and everywhere you turn, it’s exciting.

    I was torn between a four and a five rating. This book was extremely good. And that was both its strength and its downfall. The heroine was extremely intuitive and creative. The villain was extremely power hungry and cruel. The kidnapping was extremely harrowing and exotic. The plot was extremely challenging. And the resolution was extremely satisfying. A little bit of extreme goes a long way, and by the end of the book my mind was ready for something a little more believable. One side note. Rea I was torn between a four and a five rating.

I sometimes skim these or skip them all together. But in this case, the Afterward may be the best part of the entire enterprise. Just as Diana learned the power of sharing her secrets, so Mr. Peper has given a powerful end note by baring his soul. It was extremely well done. :-)

    "How we do things shapes what we do." When you come to that point in the book, it's a declaration of a character's growth that they understand the importance of being intentional in their work, of understanding the consequences of their actions that manifest long after the decisions are made. More than just being a good story, it's an important one. Eliot captures a number of trends - the declining faith in institutions, the growing power of non-state actors, the increasing reliance on technology "How we do things shapes what we do."

More than just being a good story, it's an important one. Eliot captures a number of trends - the declining faith in institutions, the growing power of non-state actors, the increasing reliance on technology in every corner of society - and weaves a compelling story throughout that asks essential questions. Eliot's characters are fully realized - you feel each has their own rich story yet to be written - and their interactions feel honest in a way that many contemporary thrillers don't. Throughout the book, throw-away observations yield fascinating insights into who the characters are and what motivates them - creating a thoroughly immersive experience. I loved reading this book. Eliot's at the top of his game.

    Peper's second novel in the Analog series amps up the scope while continuing to add layers to primary and previously peripheral characters. I will say I thoroughly enjoyed reading Diana's story and love seeing how the author continues to evolve his craft. It is a wildly entertaining read that takes on a real-world significance as big tech and political structures quickly move towards a collision.

It is a wildly entertaining read that takes on a real-world significance as big tech and political structures quickly move towards a collision. It also takes on the theme of isolation, personal compartmentalization, and vulnerability in a way that is extremely fluid in a compelling narrative. I won't give away too much, but will say this is a very satisfying read with characters you come to care for and leaves you ready to dive into the #3 in the series to see what happens to this world and its inhabitants.

While she is dealing with her own internal struggles, she needs to stay sharp in order to put a stop to others taking over one of the worlds most important resources. One of the things I appreciate about Eliot's books is the realistic characters, their struggles, and overall attention to detail. Even though the book is written in a near future time, he used tools at his disposal to map/chart out what the world would have looked like and the paths the characters could have taken.

    Borderless. Eliot Peper's Analog trilogy continues the war between the establishment and the future. This is Diana's book: the freelance spy faces down her past and her present, to build a better tomorrow. Peper channels John Perry Barlow and declares independence.

    Loved this fast moving and broad-thinking story. Big ideas permeate the action-packed plot. Occasionally a big idea got a little longwinded, but the action picked back up immediately. And I have to say, I love (spoiler alert) a happy ending, though the story will continue... Can't wait to read the next volume. (Book one was great, also!)

    Eliot Peper's latest novel is gripping, thrilling, and highly relevant. Concerns of technology, data, power, politics, and privacy play out with Commonwealth, who run and curate the Feed. Rather than focus on Dag, Peper's latest focuses on Diana, an incredible protagonist written with skill and delicacy. Highly recommended reading. Edit

I wanted to read the book for some good near future sci-fi and an adventure. I got so much more out of it. Borderless essentially shows you the story of an immigrated citizen with a complicated past, that has to question her way of loving and protecting her new home – be it her own little sanctuary or the United States of America. You follow Diana through her journey and meet every side-character through her eyes. The writing is beautiful and it brings the different relationships to live. Knowing that you were being manipulated didn’t stop it from working. Besides Dag, I got a good sense of the people in her life and I’m looking forward to meeting him in Bandwith. […] sketches capturing the multiyear fire […] his enthusiasm was aedent, fueled by the guilt. Eliot Peper seems to write very descriptively but less with adjectives and more through actions, which I liked a lot. The appearances of people seem secondary unless something is described in context of an action or a feeling it evokes. It’s an interesting story that feels like you’re slowly unearthing various layers of the story, the people and the ploys. While it is Sci-Fi everything feels realistic and I enjoyed seeing a catheter using agent who’s human and doesn’t go rogue with kung-fu skills. Just like that Diana’s plan evaporated. She wanted to come back with a firm rebuttal, explain how she’d thought through every contingency. But the fact was, she hadn’t. I joined her in a journey, starting out with eager nervousness, through all the turmoils of present and past and in the end was moved by few unremarkable words in a melancholic world, full of shit and beauty. Because life isn’t a fairy tale, but it writes the best stories. And the stories of this characters are rooted in real human emotions in all their complexity. Please get yourself some tissues for the epilogue.
