I am a woman who absolutely adored this book. It was not at all what I thought it would be. I picked it because it had some settings in Houston and it was about computers- both of which I love. And then I got sucked into the good writing, the good storytelling, the good narrator and it turned out to be addicting. What a good book and what a good idea for the storyline.!!
Truly enjoyed the futuristic view of the society. Totally plausible and believable in 2015. Returned for second "listen" of the 3-book series. Hope Daniel Suarez is busy working on the next trilogy.
Really enjoyed. I'm a 46 yo, father of 4. Loved the story. I have recommended it to friends and biz associates with no disappointments.
Great story, great voice and diction.
Society is full of problems and it seems like few people are doing anything about them. I read this book and feel a sense of longing to be part of the society the Deamon is spawning. The murders are horrible but the change is important.
Daniel Suarez's Daemon attempts to be relevant to our changing technological landscape, but he does so by pushing over the top with techno babble that often feels out of place within the confines of his world. Misogynistic undertones plagued the book, which makes me wonder if Daniel Suarez spends the majority of his time on 4chan.
The first book I couldn't finish in a long time.
Great and mind blowing sci-fi and technology concepts, but characters were a little too "cliche-macho-action-movie" for me.
Hike and Paddle Guide
This book is a well written unique story without the formulaic plot usually seen in this genre - it's fast moving and well read. I will be continuing with the series and expect to be reading/listening to this again. The book deals heavily with technology and the future of mankind. If your looking for an exciting quasi Sci-Fi/fantasy/ mildly dystopic book - this is a good read for you.
First let me stay, I don't normally read/listen to this genre and I only picked it up due to the number of positive reviews. I must say I am glad I did as it was a fantastic ride.
This book puts a little bit of what-if scenario if a virus (Daemon) that takes over the world by using the data against the organisation.
The book appears to be a commentary on the social structure of the world and how corporations are protected at all costs at the consequence of people suffering. It is a good concept and not one I've seen too much before.
As for the narrator.. Gurner is probably one of the better narrators I've actually heard and one I will look out for in the future.
