Well worth the time

Loved this book, has to be one of his best. It starts a bit slow, and a little scattered. 50 pages, or so in,eveything clicks into place. A rather amazing commentary on human nature and the influence of the internet. Well done Mr Preston. More please.

I thought that this was Mr. Preston poorest novel to date; his stand alone novels are usually very good to excellent. This one was so bad that I stopped reading it about 75% of the way through. His journey into the world of AI was annoying and somewhat predictable. I was hoping that he would depart from the earth-based activities and spend more of his time on Kraken where the software program would have been better suited and certainly more appealing.

    I’m not giving away the ending by saying that we never get to Titan, but don’t be disappointed after page one I never thought about it again. Douglas Preston delivers an amazing thriller that just kept me listening when I ought to have turned the story off and done something else.

    I wanted to know what a Wall Street shark, a young boy all the way across the country, and NASA programing team leader had in common. It wasn’t obvious for a long time. Then in an instant, Dorothy brought them together.

    Dorothy takes a while to get to know. She’s young and turbulent, like a teenager. She has feelings; she has fears, two things your average AI doesn’t deal with. She’s a good girl at heart, but at times, she’s an angry twelve year old with a gun, a scary thing indeed.

    Melissa Shepherd and Wyman Ford chase after Dorothy while the FBI relentlessly chase after them. However, unlike a recent book by Dan Brown, Douglas Preston provides just enough chase to keep it interesting.

    And then it’s over.

    Well, not quite over. I think Douglas has yet another spell binding book on the way and I can’t wait for it to arrive.

    Starts slow. Speeds up. I read it in one night. The AI has a page or so of confused independence that might put you off at first but you'll find it enhances the story once you understand what it is.
