Sundiver by David Brin

While on holiday this year I read David Brin's Sundiver novel. It's a very interesting book, but it's really showing it's age. Published in 1980 the book pre-dates the current era of ultra-cheap commodity computing and pervasive networking. The book's hero reads paper reports and there are multiple places where the actions set in 2246 seem strangely antique by todays standards.

If you ignore the anachronisms it's a good book, I'll have to get hold of the rest of the series from the library as most of them don't seem to be available on Amazon (last time I looked).
