    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"
    "Great concept, disappointing conclusion"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the concept of the book. Well written, good character development. Very poor wrap-up, however. Lots of loose ends and unresolved issues.

    On a bright September morning in 1939, two days after Britain declares war on Germany, a group of privileged but desperate people gather in Southhampton to board the largest, most luxurious airliner ever built - the Pan American Clipper - bound for New York.

    Would you try another book from Ken Follett and/or Tom Casaletto?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This novel is written on a very thin premise. The lives of number of individuals who "collide" onboard this flight become entwined. However, it is very contrived in order to bring these multiple soap opera dramas together with some attempt at resolution. I learned more about the airplane than I did about the ability to tell stories that are believable and have some meaning. I did not really see the Follett grandeur or scope he is known for in this work. I really regret the purchase.

  • A Dirty Job

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    colleen says: "I loved it!"
    "Great listen. A quirky delight!"
    Overall

    This story about the darker side of life, that is, about Death, is filled with surprises, engaging characters, and incredible use of language. I literally laughed out loud several times throughout this book at the turn of a phrase, an outrageous observation about life (or death), or some of the incredible behavior or events so well described by Moore. The reader, Fisher Stevens, was excellent and added a great deal to the book's presentation and enjoyment. Some of the language, another reveiwer refers to f-bombs, didn't contribute to the narrative but it is worth the effort to ignore the distraction. A very entertaining book.
