    Sue Grafton needs to hurry up with next release...


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    nothing. i could do better


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a genius at math - and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes.

    What disappointed you about WWW?

    Nothing... i quit listening several times but told myself the entire audio cant all be this terrible... ha! It kept getting worse... sad disappointment...


    What was most disappointing about Robert J. Sawyer’s story?

    It attempted to explain the www and maneuvering as if you were a complete idiot. Even a complete novice would be insulted.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    I cannot believe the author has published more than one book... after my experience with www, i have no desire to checkout his other literary failures.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    All around disappointment...


    Any additional comments?

    Dont waste your time or money / credits on this audiobook... you have been warned!!
