Freedom, by Daniel Suarez

I just finished reading this book. Although not as quite as exciting as its predecessor: Daemon, it holds your attention until the conclusion. I would recommend this book to be read after Daemon.

Not as good as Daemon

I recently read Daemon and was blown away. I was very excited that it's sequel was coming out. I have to say I was disappointed. There is not as much action and I feel that the story gets blogged down at points. He story of the Daemon does get wrapped up pretty much ...
I recently read Daemon and was blown away. I was very excited that it's sequel was coming out. I have to say I was disappointed. There is not as much action and I feel that the story gets blogged down at points. He story of the Daemon does get wrapped up pretty much but I think we could get another story. I word of warning-You must read Daemon before reading Freedom. If you do not you will be completely lost.

    Great sequel!!

    A great sequel to Daemon, the first from this author. Not as good as Daemon, but very close. If you haven't read that, then I do not recommend reading this book first. Daemon should absolutely be read first so that you can thoroughly enjoy this one. If you like technology, video games, sci-fi, super cool characters, crazy ideas, and fun, then read both of these books. Read both of these books in a span of about 5 days. Do not start before bed if you are looking for sleep. I am really excited about this author and only wish there was more out there by him.

    Quite good.

    Not the best prose in the world (John Steinbeck) but a very good story.

    Good read

    Good, easy tech-thriller book to read. Read Daemon first however.

    A good follow up to end the continued story

    I good read if you have read the first in the series. If you picked up this book without the first one, you may be lost in what is going on. It almost seemed like the publisher wanted to break a larger novel (single book) into two. The bridge between the two books seemed weak. A great story and I recommend it to others who like high-tech action stories.

    Super conclusion to Daemon.

    A great conclusion to Daemon. Freedom was not as action packed as the first book, but concentrated more on the inner workings of the Darknet and the daemon. Characters evolved and some took surprising twists. The story that began in Daemon was actually believable and that added a lot to the appeal of the book. Freedom goes a little beyond what is believable extending to the realm of science fiction. That is not a criticism, just an observation. Freedom had it's share of action and suspense. The villains become more evil and the heroes more complicated and enduring. Freedom quickly becomes character driven once high tech climaxes and levels off. Defiantly a great ending. So many book series have had very disappointing endings in the past. In freedom the loose ends are tied up and the the reader sighs with relief, not frustration. Highly recommended!
