    From Roy Sexton: In this day and age of lightspeed communication and technology that knits together a social media-fed world and blurs the lines of virtual reality and, well, real reality, David Ross' "Virtual Life of Fizzy Oceans" is a tonic. Through satire, whimsy, and a clearly defined central narrator, Ross paints a portrait of a world lived in escape as elements of history are plucked and observed in a kind hazy electronic dreamworld. The internet in its present incarnation promises us the [...]

    The most striking and impressive thing about The Virtual Life of Fizzy Oceans is the voice it gives to one of the most fundamental problems of our age. Was technology intended by evolution or God or both (depending on your existential leanings) or is it an accident, an aberration that fate's guiding hand could not foresee or control? David A. Ross' position on this is clear: Digital existence is something fundamental, human, even spiritual, an impulse towards new life that our culture cried out [...]

    For me, this book was much easier to read than review. It was easy to read because it's intelligent and entertaining throughout, and it introduced me to the concept of virtual worlds which, though it's been around a while (lord knows how many hours my daughter has clocked up on The Sims) I've never so much as glanced at thus far.Of course, 'The Virtual Life of Fizzy Oceans' takes the idea of a virtual world much further than The Sims, and Fizzy, the protagonist, finds herself on a journey of phi [...]

    When I first started this book, I wasn't sure I'd get through it. I'm not a computer person, and talking about virtual people, worlds, etc, wasn't really my things. But then you get a little bit further and start understanding the complexities of it all, and start wondering just how many people now live this way, and if we'll end up living this way along down the line, generations from now. It was intriguing to think about having a life you can create all yourself, be who you want to be and do w [...]

    The book is well written and tackles some thought-provoking topics such as conservation and global warming. Sometimes it gets a little preachy but the author knows how to lighten the mood. He gives Fizzy a smart, yet playful persona and there’s even a bit of virtual sex in a place called the Sex Dungeon. This book is not for everyone, but if you like stories of time travel, history and virtual alternate worlds, you will probably enjoy Fizzy’s adventures. This one is definitely worth a read. [...]

    I just couldn't get through this one. I was attracted to the title because of the quirky character name "fizzy oceans" but the story appears to just be premise to lecture on global warming. It reminds me of all those business books where the author thinks that by using a fictional character and "story" format - the boring the business/leadership principles will be more interesting. Sorry - still boring.

    I gave up on this after reading about a third of it, then skimming to a little past the half-way point before I couldn't take any more of it. It was too preachy, tried to cover too many topics, characters were not believable, and it was too long -- other than that, the writing was OK.

    I'm not a moron, and I don't like to be addressed as if I am one.

    Going back and forth between 2 and 3 stars. Still working on my review.

    Loved it! Loved the premise, loved the chapters, loved the writing. A must read for all you Second Lifers.
