    1 thought on “El jinete de la onda del shock”

    1. TSR is not a plot book, and it is also not a character book, but it IS an idea book. Brunner was ahead of the curve (or the shockwave) on so many things, and managed to write about the modern Internet in 1975, anticipating terms like 'bandwidth' and 'computer worm'. This is great social SF.

    2. This book starts out a little rocky and disjointed (possibly an intentional style by the author to match with the subject material), then pulls together and ultimately soars by the last third. Written in 1975, much of the technology forecast in this book is amazingly prescient, especially that relating to the Internet ("datanet"). I'm not usually a fan of the elliptical writing and shallow characterization typical of older sci-fi, and I'm not a huge fan of puns (wordplay is used liberally throug [...]

    3. Three and a half stars, rounded up. This is an unusual book, one without a plot exactly, and which ends with a question for the reader rather than an actual conclusion. But considering that it was published in 1975, it felt less outdated in its prediction of a wired future than one would have thought when I read it in 2004 or thereabouts.

    4. I think the futuristic lingo is a little over done - makes it a bit more difficult to read than it has to be - he is painting a very scary look at a future that is now here in very many ways. This is pretty remarkable when the main thrust is a computerized society that was only beginning in 1975 & the Internet was a twinkling in ARPANet's juvenile eye. Well worth reading.

    5. A proto-cyberpunk text by Brunner that I didn’t warm to that much but fairs alright in hindsight(and as a piece with quartet, sometimes refered to as his "American Quartet".), the images aren't as vivid and the plot is more opaque. Some interesting moments with an ending somewhat echoing Bester’s Tiger! Tiger! (Fine, Stars my Destination, blah!) Interesting book (especially the thoughts on identity which seem very prophetic for the identity theft age) some elements seem to have been better h [...]

    6. 1975 yılında yazılmış olan Şok Dalgası Süvarisi, yazıldığı döneme göre çok orijinal bir konuya sahip ve yazarın uzağı çok iyi öngördüğünü göstermekte.Gelecekte devletler güvenliklerini ve üstünlüklerini sağlamak için genetik mühendislikten ve bilgisayarlardan yararlanarak yeni bir toplum düzeni yaratmak istiyorlar. Tüm insanlar tek bir veri ağına bağlanmış durumda, gelecek veya herhangi bir konu ile ilgili tahminler yapılırken tüm insanlardan alınan ve [...]

    7. Prescient proto-cyberpunk classic. Highly influenced by Alvin Toffler's Futureshock, down to having a Toffler-like philosopher quoted in the book and a Toffler blurb on the back. Used the idea of the computer worm and virus (called a phage in the book) for maybe the first time in sci-fi. Eventually devolves into a 70s aging hippie luddite critique of of technological advancement, completely failing to foresee the individual, antitotalitarian empowerment the information revolution brought about. [...]

    8. Estoy generosa: a lo mejor no se merece las 5 pero ¡qué coño!, me lo he pasado estupendamente leyéndolo y ya está. Mi pequeña cabecita alcanza a formular reflexiones pero no le da para desarrollarlas del todo; leyendo este libro me ha dado por preguntarme cómo es posible que alguien en los 70 fuera capaz de percibir la trampa y las falsas religiones que surgirían a partir del desarrollo de los ordenadores, pero no fuera más allá de imaginar un aparato que sería aún más engañoso: el [...]

    9. The Shockwave Rider is a book before its time, published in 1975, the book provides a vision for the future of computer networks today. The term 'Web' was used in this book years before the Web as we know it emerged. A riveting story of freeman vs Big Brother society which contains the classic values of privacy still being debated vigorously today. Computer worms and self replicating code - all the cyber components.The increasing rate of change has sent most Americans into mental distress. Every [...]

    10. A great book about hacking, megacorps, evil government, and revolution through information from 1975. It will sound terribly dated and so suprisingly damn relevant - trust me.

    11. The Shockwave Rider is the final installment in John Brunner's Club of Rome Quartet, and in many ways the most prescient of the lot. Previously, Stand on Zanzibar drew from Paul Ehrlich to deal with over-population, The Sheep Look Upcovered Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and ecological breakdown, and (less successfully) The Jagged Orbit covered racial tensions and the medicalisation of everyday life by 'Big Pharma.'The Shockwave Rider imagines a future that must have seemed a little if not far-fe [...]

    12. I think I just don't like "philosophical novels."People laud "The Shockwave Rider" for predicting stuff like the Internet. Well, it was written in '75, and communications networks were out there. Brunner's continental network is more like Ma Bell than the World Wide Web. Nothing really caught me as a gee-whiz prediction.The ethos of the story, on the other hand, is like a hippie version of Atlas Shrugged. Again, this was written in the Seventies, in the immediate aftermath of Watergate and Vietn [...]

    13. I’ve never read John Brunner before, and I confess the main motivation for starting here is the fact that this 1975 novel – in which Nickie Haflinger, an escapee from the mysterious Tarnover facility, uses a stolen code to hack computers and forge new IDs for himself to evade capture – is generally cited as an ancestor of the cyberpunk genre because it was one of the first SF novels to feature computer networks and hacking as a central concept. Obviously it’s hard to read this without co [...]

    14. No sé si os acordáis de las pelis de hackers. Hubo una época, por los 80 y 90, en la que estaban de moda. Lo que ocurría con aquellas películas es que, dado que ver a un tío escribiendo código ante una pantalla era algo bastante aburrido, convertían el asunto en algo mucho más épico. Dibujitos de colores, etc El jinete de la onda del shock no cae del todo en esos clichés porque es un poco más antiguo, porque en cierto modo es PRECURSOR de toda esa movida, pero eso no quita que aquí [...]

    15. Re-read on 2016-07-10.For a book written 40+ years ago (1975), this holds up surprisingly well. It doesn't say precisely when it's set, but it's around now - after 2010 and before 2025. It gets a bunch of stuff wrong, but it's eerily on-target in a lot of ways. It was written when the Internet was still just a research project, but envisions it pretty well as we know it - its role in our lives, if not the technical details. One of the big themes is government surveillance of internet traffic. Th [...]

    16. The book written in 1975 uses technological terms (IE: bandwidth) with a foresight unlike any before it. It's a up dated version of other "Big Brother" type stories but very readable.

    17. I've recently re-read one of my favourite SF novels from the 1970s, John Brunner's The Shockwave Rider, and it has more than lived up to expectations.Okay, like any book using future technology it gets some things wrong. Its early 21st century tech is mostly too advanced (but then they still use tapes to store information). However, this book absolutely sizzles with ideas, some taken from Alvin Toffler's far effective readable futurology book, Future Shock.Just one example - the protagonist is i [...]

    18. This book was published in 1975. Since then, many of the things that he has predicted have come true. Most commentators have focused on his predictions about the net and what is now being known as 'big data'. But I think his predictions run deeper than that. In the troubled times that we live in, it is becoming clear that much of what happens is manipulated by a group of oligarchs who have bought and control the media, as well as the politicians. John Brunner's book is almost an essay on the con [...]

    19. En términos generales, debo decir que no me ha convencido. De John Brunner leí Todos sobre Zanzíbar y me encantó. En este caso, sin embargo, la obra tiene muchos "peros".Hay que decir que empieza bien. La ambientación es excelente y la calidad literaria notable. Me resultó muy grato ver cómo Brunner acertaba en cómo sería la red En 1975. Sin embargo, en seguida empiezan los problemas. Los diálogos son densos, farragosos y -en ocasiones- parecen más los de un escritor novel que los de [...]

    20. Overall I really liked this book. Written in the 70's, it's amazing how relevant it is today. I also enjoyed tracing the roots of cyberpunk all through this particular take on the 21st century. Of course, some things jar - (view spoiler)[ like uniform eco-housing or the hand-waving that goes on once you start to consider the actual logistics of relocating every few months across the continent - there has to be a pretty big ellipsis concerning how people came to be able to give up all their mater [...]

    21. 43 years ago, foresaw the web, viruses, cyber-surveillance, cellphones and FOMO: "In this age of unprecedented information flow, people are haunted by the belief that they're actually ignorante there's literally too much to be known.[and because] data exists that we're not allowed to get at."Also "jehad in the Yemen", the Great Bay Quake and the ensuing off-the-grid hippie communes.Oh, and a White House controlled by organized crime: "the syndicate's first attempt at the presidency was pretty mu [...]

    22. No plot to speak of and, therefore, an unsatisfying progression and resolution of events. However, the ideas the author is wrestling w/ in this work are still relevant, probably even moreso than at the time of writing. Up for discussion are consumerism and invasions of privacy taken to their extremes and the damage operating in such a context can levy on people. I'd argue that the author is not far off in describing what we're living in 2018, but with the caveat that his idealism in meting out j [...]

    23. I'm a student of sociology and I had a work that I had to read a sciencie fiction book and then write an analyisis of the future that this book talk. In my opinion diferents things surprise me:1. The control of the people using a type of internet.2.The idea that the tecnologic progress could be bad.3.The existencial and social crisis of the characters of the book.4.The diference between knowdledge and windsom. Brunner warns to us the way thats we ara going to. The world of Brunner has to make us [...]

    24. As many reviewers have mentioned, it is a book that foreshadows the current state of affairs in which corporations know more about you than yourself. You will find many things where you say "this is exactly what happens today!" but it is not an easy read, because of the author´s style, completely non-linear. A complete sci-fi classic.

    25. This book was written in 1975, apparently by Nostradamus. The ideas are valuable, and the vision of the future eerily prescient, but the characters and plot are flimsy and hard to follow.

    26. Exceptionally accurate estimations and usage of "Future Shock" theory by Alvin Toffler. I'm speechless with solution for problems about dystopian future that promoted in book. I fell in love with many details within

    27. El jinete de la onda del shock (título en español)El 2º libro de ciencia-ficción que logro acabarme sin contar novelas juveniles (es mi género maldito)y me ha encantado. Me costó mucho engancharme porque a parte de que como en toda buena obra de ciencia-ficción lo normal es al principio no enterarse de nada con tantos términos científicos inventados xD, el inicio del libro es confuso, lento y denso, pero la idea me parecía muy buena y me intrigaba saber a dónde iba a llevar todo y no [...]

    28. This is one of the books in what is called Brunner’s “Club of Rome Quartet”. This novel deals with information, who controls it, the power the control of that information and its availability brings and its effects on society. Written in 1975, like Brunner’s other novels, the story takes place about forty or fifty years in America’s future…so about present time. He takes the title (and many of the ideas) from Alfred Toffler’s popular 1970 book “Future Shock” which deals with th [...]

    29. This is a bit more avant-garde than I'd anticipated, and isn't always the most enjoyable read on the planet. But it knew the future in the mid-70s, and occasionally feels like it miiiight be a masterpiece.
