Started off a little shaky for me but the reader has great technique with character switching. Really enjoyed the story and im looking forward to seeing what else the author has to offer
Great execution. Enthralling and the reader was very good as well.
Good introduction to this unfamiliar to me writer. Twists and turns I was not expecting.
A great listen! A bit of a lull just before the middle, but I'm so happy I went back to finish it. The ideas and technology are straight from the tech news headlines and put together in a creative and believable way.
This was an interesting read. The ideas expressed kept me intrigued. I'm not sure where it is going but feel like it is a great start to a series. My only problems with it are: 1) there are a lot of characters to keep with and 2) there doesn't seem to be a clear protagonist or villian. I guess this could be classified as man versus machine story, but instead of one man, it is many and the machine is made up of humans as well. Going to try the next book and see if it lives up to expectations!
Yup, already to #2
Yes, it was something new, with a twist
They were all believably different
"It's not just a game....anymore"
I was totallly into it. I can see why some people might have a hard time following it if you've never played any online games, or PC video games. I was as immersed in the story as some of the characters were in their games. Great thing is, it was a totally plausible.
Very good book, good story, solid technology background. I'm a developer and I enjoyed recognizing possible application of different technology.
The narrator is a bit monotonous, not at the level of a Will Wheaton, but still better than most.
Looking forward to read/listen to the second book :)
The disillusionment of our current system taken to an extreme. The premise is so plausible yet the most improbable and riveting. This is best and most relevant to current day science fiction I have heard. I cant recommend it highly enough!
At points the narrators voice didn't match the content being read. Like when he was quoting email subject lines... It was more comical than I felt was necessary and brought me out of the story a little. Otherwise well executed!!!!
I've been writing software for over twenty years. Most of the books in my collection are science fiction or computer related materials.
Daemon is a killer story. This is a rather geeky story but is extremely good and is one that will make you think about how this actually can happen. The only complaint I have is Daemon is frequently mispronounced. I would LOVE to see a movie made from this and book two: Freedom.
Not all those who wander are lost...
This work easily ranks in my contemporary top 10, probably in my top 5.
There really isn't another "book" to compare this too, its that unique, and entertaining.
Not a thing. Jeff is one of the best audio performers out there.
There were a number of times I laughed, cringed, and thought how scary the future could be if we as a people don't start opening our eyes.
Daniel Suarez in one of our generations great writers. He takes on current and future issues that most people don't even realize exist. He has easily become one of the Top 5 Authors for Richard.
