This is William Gibson on steroids, Tom Clancy condensed, Asimov reincarnated and Robert J. Sawyer on Flash Forw..Show More »ard with a splash of Ayn Rand and George R.R. Martin.
This will appeal to Techies, Sci-Fi fans, action/adventurers, Virtual Reality freaks, and Gamers.
This is high tech and fast paced. I was afraid as a middle age man, who plays only offline games and can remember when Pong was a hit, that I would get lost in the tech, but it was not a problem.

Normally, I don't write reviews - But after listening to this and Daemon (which you must listen to Daemon first) - I'm convinced, Suarez is a ..Show More »great writer and Gruner is a great reader. This book is good for one that likes fast paced story telling. Even if you don't get allot of the technology (which I do) you will enjoy the story. To tell you how much you will actually WANT to follow the story, I completed this book in about 3 days (normally for a book this size it takes me about a week and a half). A great read, and a good one if you've got a long trip or vacation travel ahead. (NOTE: Daemon and Freedom(TM) are not really safe for children's ears - so headphones are probably a good idea)
