    I both liked and disliked this book. The subject was certainly interesting, almost science-fiction like. What if scientists could take several people and somehow cybernetically combine them to create a new entity with the best of each of the subjects? Quite an idea! The book however at times became quite scary as the experiment inadvertently encompassed an unknown source that lashed out in vengeance for past wrongs. I had trouble reading some of the very graphic details of the acts of revenge that this scientific experiment put in motion.

    I have two questions:Why isn't a great writer like James F. David not more well-known?Why is a great novel like Fragments out of print a mere 12 years after it was originally published?

    "Fragments" offers an interesting concept, the fusing of the minds of several savants in a collective intelligence. However, a concept is not enough to sustain a book.In my opinion, the problem with "Fragments" is a basic one. The reader never really gets to know, or care about, the characters in the story. Part of the problem may be that there are too many characters to keep track of. In any case, the people we meet in this book are never really fleshed out.

    This was the first book I read by this author, and I happened to pick it up in a used book store. The description caught me, and I was happily surprised when I started reading it. Great characters, good descriptive writing and a truly intriguing and creepy plot. Awesome read.

    This is one of my favorite books. Enjoyed it a lot. I love how the author includes his home state Oregon in most of his books.

    It had a decent premise but steadily declined until I found myself so disinterested I could not bring myself to finish it. Disappointing.
