The captivating aspect of this book is its plausibility. They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I know just enough about computer architecture and systems that I kept looking for a glitch in the plot where I could say "why don't they just do thus and such," Never did find one. Perhaps if I knew more I would be less worried. Then again, I might be more worried still.
My only caveat is not to listen to this as you settle into bed expecting to pick it up again the next night if you have to go to work in the morning. The darn thing runs too long to listen to it straight through and get some sleep too. It had me gripped from the begining and almost yelling at the daemon to have some compassion. I find that yelling at books and radio programs to be less effective than I would hope and in the middle of the night to simply upset my wife.
I'm trying to decide about the follow up books as my sleep system can only adjust so far.
Now I understand a lot more about what makes Reacher tick. As you learn background about Reacher, he is learning background about himself. A case during his active duty service days that keeps you listening when you should be doing something else.
