    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.

    "Fantastic Title"
    Overall

    Being a 'geek' myself as well as a huge Michael Crichton fan I fell right into this book and found it enjoyable beginning to end. While not as technologically thorough or intricate as most Crichton stories there is still plenty to love here.

    Character development isn't deep but enough is there for you to develop a vested interest in the fate of these people.

    The action towards the end of the book becomes a little far fetched but never dull and it remains compelling. By the end of the story Suarez has given the reader much more to think about that simple cyber-security.

    Narration is excellent and the effects used on the Daemon really add a life to the story that you would not get otherwise.

    I wanted to address the extremely shallow and unintelligent complaint a user by the name of 'Ted' wrote about a rape scene early on in the story.

    Apparently this user knows the author on a personal enough level to know his exact intent with this scene, as well as his desire to partake in such actions.
    In reality any competent reader will interpret the scene as relevant social commentary on the origin of a main antagonist in the story. Its relevance only grows as the novel progresses and the author expands his point of view of the current state of society through the Daemon's story.

    But as 'Ted' has shown, not all readers are competent.

    A 'Block User' feature would go a long way Audible!

    The sequel to Daemon, Freedom(TM), is available on audible as well. I am quite thankful that it is available immediately as the end of Daemon is really just the beginning. I feel for anyone who had to wait for Suarez to complete the sequel!
