Watch out "Social Network" and "Pirates of Siicon Valley" the next great tech movie is contained within the pages this book. I also enjoyed to Jeff Jarvis's "WWGD" and "In the Plex" but this book has great personal drama as well as the interesting Google Story. You can relate the Doug as he takes you on his journey through the world of search, working hard to understand the Google Culture and create a better world. This guy is an awesome writer and a wonderful story teller. I can't wait to see the movie!! I've only written a few reviews but this book is so good I wanted to recommend it to others. This book is not the usual "yada-yada!" Awesome book! Highly recommended!!
This book reminded me of Daemon & Freedom(tm)! Great tech science fiction. I would sometimes sit in my car when I got home from work because the story was that good! Although slow at first, the story and characters are worth the wait and WOW does it pay off big time. The climax is epic.
Refereed to as the "Singularity Series" the order is not critical but added to my enjoyment of the story:
1) Avogadro (most realistic - best characters)
2) AI Apocalypse (best action - my favorite of the series- WOW - What an ending!!)
3) The Last Firewall (least realistic - but still a great story - another great climax)
While I'm not a coffee drinker, I might become one after spending so much time enjoying this series. Great books - strongly recommend if you like tech science fiction.
Is it possible that Daemon is in a new genre - "AI SciFi?" This book reminds me so much of the feelings I had when I first saw Matrix. Mind blowing! After you read this book you never look at a computer the same way again.
This book was a great 80's throw back, with lots of retro 80's humor. While this book isn't for everyone, anyone who was a greek in the 1980's will enjoy the humor, adventure and writing style of this book.
I remember hearing these stories years ago on tape. It was such a treat to find them at Audible. The story is awesome. This radio drama includes a talented cast with real star wars sounds and great music. It's a "must hear" for every Star Wars fan. The only bummer is the missing part three - Is there a SW:Dark Empire Part III anywhere?
