Glass Houses - Laura J. Mixon
No one could say that this book is gracefully written (how did the author think it was a good idea to describe the response to an unexpected noise like so: "My skin started to creep up the back of my neck like it wanted to hide on top of my head"), but it’s fast-paced and fun, and I didn't have any trouble deciphering the important aspects of the setting or following the plot. It ticks all the boxes: a gritty future setting, a tough-and-tender techie heroine (the emotional implications of the fact that she spends most of her time piloting a waldo by VR link are one of the best things in the story), chases and fistfights, treacherous lovers and loyal friends. It’s light entertainment of quite good quality.
