As a software engineer professional, I found this techno-thriller to be the only one of it's kind that I've ever read that really seemed to be written by someone who knows how modern computers and networks function. At no point did I think "no, no! That's not how it would work!". I couldn't finish Dan Brown's "Digital Fortress" because of that sort of thing. This was a great listen, and I'm looking forward to starting the sequel ASAP!
Both books from this trilogy was realistic, and almost true to life.
The ending of the the book where the SGT had to make a decision of "yes or no"...!
The book really made you think of today's world and the relevance of what the USA has become.
Yes. I couldn't stop listening. I sat on the couch way too long because I couldn't stop.
Yes. So many twists and turns that i could have never predicted.
Awesome and technically realistic.
Didnt read the print version, don't have the time. But audiobooks are perfect for me.
He is OK with the different accents, but did a great job none the less
Didn't laugh or cry, but enjoyed it tremendously
I loved the complexity of the story. Heard about it on Leo Laportes This Week in Tech and Macbreak Weekly. I am glad I bought it!
Yes, because the idea of the book is so interesting.
The narration wasn't bad but it wasn't good either, I didn't like some of the sound effects between chapters
Like other readers, I hadn't remembered there was a sequel and was unpleasantly surprised by the abrupt ending. But I also listened to Freedom, the sequel. I am a Star Trek fan and it seemed to me that there was some correlation to the whole plot idea of a world governed by something other than wealth and corporate power--where people are valued for who they are and how they act--not how rich they are. I really liked the books and the whole concept. They both kept my interest and they were well written and spoken. I would be interested to know how people who are more right wing politically like the books. I am more on the left side of politics in the U.S. and I really enjoyed them. I believe there is a political message in the books which is more left wing. Regardless of your political persuasion, I believe these books will hold your interest but you right wingers out there, please write a review about them. I will remember these books!
I love books and I don't like to listen to the radio on the way to work. Now I can listen to books instead! I am in heaven.
I'd say that this ranks in the top ten of any book I have listened to.
I thought the premise was very good, but it was sometimes very disturbing.
I think he was able to deliver the essence of each character, male and femaie.
I was disturbed by the callous behavior of some of the characters. But then people have been acting a tad callous in real life lately.
I think that people who are not computer savvy can enjoy the story if they just listen with an open mind. It causes you to think about who is really in charge the in the world today. Maybe it will wake up people to the point that they will pay attention to currents events.
Unbelievably, Unbelievably AWESOME!
The voices... especially when the Daemon spoke ... the female voice... I loved the way they had different voice characters
After reading the book, I don't think I would've been able to bring the characters to life as much as the narrator did.
I have no credits left for the month, but I'm actually going to cough up the $21 for the next book in the series. I don't think I can wait till next month.
Wow-great listen-one of my favorites-(note to reader and producer-Lompoc as in Lompoc Federal Correctional Facility is pronouced Lahm-Poke)
