Crosstalk by Connie Willis []

Crosstalk is a near-future science-fiction romance which explores our always-connected, always-on culture, and like so many of Connie Willis’s stories it is almost-but-not-quite too complicated, a bit neurotic, and wonderfully entertaining. The story centers on a couple of employees at a small smartphone company that is trying to outdo Apple, but one of them has a secret and fears that they might succeed all too well.

Connie Willis is great at witty dialogue, improbable situations, and fun, unexpected plots. She’s one of our favorite authors here at Forbes Library, and this, her newest offering, is a very fun read (even if it doesn’t have time travelling Oxford historians!)
