    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Erica says: "Possibly The Best Techno-thriller Ever"
    "GreatStoryline-Poor Ending and Dialogue"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the story--the author selected a very engaging and entertaining subject. However, the believability of the dialogue was poor, and the ending was disappointing. Despite all this, I enjoyed listening to it.

    Story
    (50)

    When his picture appeared on the cover of Texas Monthly, Joaquin Jackson became the icon of the modern Texas Rangers. Nick Nolte modeled his character on him in the movie Extreme Prejudice. Jackson even had a speaking part of his own in The Good Old Boys with Tommy Lee Jones. But the role that Jackson has always played the best is that of the man who wears the silver badge cut from a Mexican cinco peso coin, a working Texas Ranger.

    Roy says: "Texana"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    Written in a very simple "lawman-esque" writing style, the book is very enjoyable. The author does a good job of telling some very interesting Ranger stories that took place from the 60s to the 90s.

    I really enjoyed the narrarator. He did a good job of speaking "Texan" (except for one spot, "San Antonio de Bexar" isn't pronounced with an x).

    Story
    (701)

    Barcelona, 1945: Just after the war, a great world city lies in shadow, nursing its wounds, and a boy named Daniel awakes on his 11th birthday to find that he can no longer remember his mother's face. To console his only child, Daniel's widowed father, an antiquarian book dealer, initiates him into the secret of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a library tended by Barcelona's guild of rare-book dealers as a repository for books forgotten by the world, waiting for someone who will care about them again.

    Katherine says: "Great With One Exception"
    "Good Plot, but..."
    Overall

    I stuck with this book and was pleased with the plot and characters. Very enjoyable story.

    Two significant distractions for me: the writer was "over the top" in his descriptions of scenery and characters. For example, I've lost count of the number of characters who smoke cigarettes that emit a "whisp (or shadow, or finger) of blue (or grey or cloudy) smoke" who happen to be standing in the shadow of a doorway. The other distraction was the piano music. Typically played at the beginning (or end) of a chapter, the music made the production of the book seem very corny.

    Enjoyable plot. Corny piano music.
