Narrations was very good. Disappointed with author.
Listening to Michael Connelly now. The Fifth Witness.
Burn the book. Delete the file.
I saw glimpses of what was to come in Daemon, but forged ahead anyway. I may yet go back and try to finish Freedom, but only because I don't like being a quitter. However, I also don't like being preached to about what a wreck the world is and being blamed for allowing it along the way. All in a thinly veiled story about a computer program gone mad. Its like the modernized antithesis of "Atlas Shrugged". In the interest of full disclosure, I really enjoyed Atlas Shrugged and am very much a conservative. I don't mind saying that because I recognize that not everyone agrees with my views on things. In summary, while a lot of science fiction is preachy, this one went over the top. If you think that the US government and big business are collectively the source of everything that's wrong in your life you will probably enjoy Daniel Suarez' story.
If you like role playing games or technology that involves artificial intelligence you will enjoy this book.
Daemon was one of the most interesting, detailed, engrossing... just near perfect books I've listened to. Freedom (TM) is a worthy follow up but the story somehow was just didn't suck me in the way Daniel Suarez's first book did. Maybe the freshness of how different Daemon was from other books wore off? I can't recommend this book or the first highly enough.
This was a excellent book and I will be listening to it again. Great story line.
After going through Daemon which is the first book I found any opertunity I could to listen to this book.
Jeff Gurner does great with the male voices but they should have brought in a female for some of his female voices.
This a a great book for those sifi geeks and even some of the thriller people out there. The only thing that might turn certain people off is the details of the technology. I'm in I.T. so knew what they wer talking about and loved it but those not into it those parts might bore you.
Wow wow WOW!!
It takes the plausible and projects it on today's events
The end was very interesting, again, especially given today's social/economical/political climate.
This and Daemon have to be one of my top 5 fiction reads ever. Hope they make a movie.
There should have been a warning that this book is for young adults.
Disappointment and irritation.
I could listen to maybe 30 minutes of it.
Jeff Gurner continues his excellent delivery in this well written conclusion to Daemon.
I picked up Daemon and Freedom based on reviews I read here. If it hadn't been for Audible I would never have discovered this amazing story.
I have no idea why I bought this book. I don't like books that dispatch with reality and make things up out of the blue. I guess I downloaded it because some reviews said that this is a geek's book. Just what is a geek's book anyway? It isn't a book for someone who works in IT, or a scientist concerned with the natural world. It seems to be a book for alternate reality gamers. Anyway, this story isn't for me. I don't appreciate sophomoric and stereotypical attacks on evil corporations, evil government institutions, and evil economic systems. I made it through 4-5 chapters and barfed. Is this a book for OWS?
I am a platinum member who listens to many, many audiobooks. I have never before felt the urge to write a review until after I listened to this series. This series is incredible. I am actually somewhat worried that this book may have ruined science fiction for me as everything else seems boring by comparison. If you do not listen to this series, you will have missed out on a true gem. Start with DAEMON, as you must know the background, but then continue on with this book. You'll be glad that you did.
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
I kept trying to suspend my disbelief while listening to this book, but the lack of the writer's knowledge of economics was distracting. Very disappointing. Waste of a perfectly good credit.
