In the tradition of the greatest cyberpunk novels, Blood Music explores the imminent destruction of mankind and the fear of mass destruction by technological advancements. The novel follows present-day events in which the fears concerning the nuclear annihilation of the world subsided after the Cold War and the fear of chemical warfare spilled over into the empty void it left behind.

An amazing breakthrough in genetic engineering made by Vergil Ulam is considered too dangerous for further research, but rather than destroy his work, he injects himself with his creation and walks out of his lab, unaware of just how his actions will change the world. Author Greg Bear’s treatment of the traditional tale of scientific hubris is both suspenseful and a compelling portrait of a new intelligence emerging amongst us, irrevocably changing our world.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Alvi | 2/14/2014

    " A typical Greg Bear book filled with long-winded and tedious descriptions of completely irrelevant details. Blood music is an easy read, not much behind it, very few ideas. I fear the day when Greg Bear finally has more than one idea for a book. Imagine Philip K. Dick's inspiration coupled with Greg Bear's tendency to over explain, and you'd get a world without trees. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ronald B. | 2/2/2014

    " Nobody else can imagine other forms of life as distinctly as Greg Bear. Bear's descriptions will carry you down to the cellular level. His transformation of post-apocalypse America is unique. Only the ending was a bit of a let down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by David Mcquillen | 1/26/2014

    " This is one of the finest science fiction novels of the last 50 years...Bear's best and one of the hundred greatest Science Fiction novels of all time. "
