    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.

    Story

    Normally the User Review star system works well for me. The book looked interesting and it got very good reviews. To my surprise this book was quite horrible.

    Most books (and movies for that matter) start off with character development of the good guys and bad guys. The bad guys do bad things at the beginning of the book, the good guys then spend most of the book trying to right the wrong, and then usually the good guys win at the end.

    SPOILER ALERT
    In this book, the focus is on character development of the bad guys and their technology. It's difficult to figure out who the "hero" is among the good guys. The bad guys tear apart the good guys for the ENTIRE book. I kept hoping things would turn around but they did not. The book left me feeling unsatisfied. For example, say if you watched a Batman movie in which the bad guys always kicked Batman's butt and that's how the movie ended. That's kind of how I feel now.

    Now of course maybe my perspective on which side is "good" and which is "bad" is wrong.... Of perhaps this is what Daniel Suarez wants us to feel after reading this book. In either case I feel that I wasted my time listening to this audiobook and wasted more time having to write this review.
