    I read the first one waaaaay back and then got out of the Piers Anthony 'thing'. Picked this up used when I saw it, read three chapters and flung it away, might use it as bird cage liner, if I had a bird. Anthony writes sex, bad sex, boring sex meant to represent first teenage attempts at passion but with no depth. His words are sawdust. I've read a few others by him and I'm disappointed in my teenage self for loving them so much.Anthony is a pervert,a really boring one. There I said it. ugh.

    As ever the science is exciting, even though it is math based. But, the girl and her earth life just leave me sad.

    Expanding on the story of Colene, the suicidal teen from Earth, who falls in love with Darius, the Cyng of Hlahtar from another reality, and accompanies Seqiro, the telepathic horse from yet another reality, along with Provos, the woman from a reality where people only “remember” the future as opposed to the past, Fractal Mode is a work of “imaginative fiction” that is far more worthy of note than the attention it has garnered thus far. At first, I had thought that I was ignorant of the [...]

    I read 'Fractal Mode', the second of the 'Mode' series by Anthony, because I really enjoyed the first. However, this second book was far less stimulating, plot-wise, and was very repetitive. The author spent a great deal of time recounting every specific important thing about every character that we learned in the first book. Understandable, as some books do this to remind you of the previous book in case it has been a while since you read it. Unfortunately, Anthony then went on to repeat these [...]

    Piers Anthony has always been by favorite writer ever since. The way he presented his science fiction writings, really gives me the compass-like mind. Pointing to where he is heading the story, mostly in different angles and dimensions all the time. The book is good in mixing the 'fairytale-like' love story and mind stirring fictional scientific facts. Nona, the ninth of the ninth child Colene, the suicidal 14-year old girl Both in love with Darius, their magical prince charming. Sequiro is a to [...]

    I liked this book significantly better than the first one in the series. The characters and their relationships are more developed, and more time is spent on some of the interesting mathematical and theoretical elements.(view spoiler)[So my biggest complaint with the first book was that Colene was kind of one-dimensional, and really not very likeable to boot. That actually changes in this book, particularly when she's helping Esta and Slick. You get to see that she's still suicidal, but also sel [...]

    As a reader who greatly prefers Anthony's sci-fi over his fantasy work, I found this a disappointment. Typically his novels will mix elements of both, but some lean more in one direction than the other, and this one leans almost entirely toward fantasy. (This despite its intriguing title, which was what inspired me to pick up my copy -- cheap and on a whim -- at a used book store.) Not my cup of tea, although those who prefer Anthony's fantasy novels may, understandably, feel differently. On the [...]

    The fractal world was wonderfully interesting and I enjoy the adventure the virtual mode offers. But The misogyny is just so much. The way male and female desires and relationships are portrayed is just so 1950's.I'm rereading this series and plan to send the books on to a new home after having done so. I originally read them when I was very young and didn't know any better. I'm now very sad that I read these before I was old enough to know better.

    Another fairly good but dated story. While on the Virtual Mode the characters end up in a universe based on fractals. I enjoy fantasy, but I found myself saying, come on, that is NOT the way that would happen. If you can get passed the dated computer stuff and the unrealistic characters, it's an okay story.

    Read in 1992 when it was new. Nothing in particular to add to my review of Virtual Mode, the first book in the series. No star reviews for these because I read them so long ago, and my opinion is so divided that it would be nearly impossible anyway.

    I would never have picked fantasy on my own, and I haven't read any fantasy since my aunt gave me Fractal Mode and Virtual Mode, but I liked the stories. I especially liked the main girl in the book, she was a kind of fantasy too. ;)

    It took a while to visualize the nature of this alternate reality, where everything is arrayed in fractal patterns along connecting filaments. it's quite a concept, which along with a telepathic horse and lots of magic can certainly serve to expand one's mind.

    An intriguing premise, but too complex for me to really visualise (the fractal universe) and so it felt like too much of the time was spent explaining it. This is also the middle of a trilogy, and I haven't read the first or last books; that might help. But not one of my favourite's of his.

    This was one of the first real science fiction books that I ever read. One of the main characters is a girl who has a pretty screwed up sense of self (she's a cutter) who travels through parallel dimensions and meets friends along the way.

    Pretty decent follow-up to the first book in the series. Some parts were a bit hard to understand and went far over my head, but overall I still enjoyed the story and want to see where the journey takes these characters.

    Not as good as I thought it was the first tume I read it umpteen years ago. Oh well, still an engaging thoughtful read.

    In my view the best of the 'MODE' books, and the first one I read.It was engaging enough to make me want to read all the others.
