    Second in a Fun Trilogy

    I very much enjoyed this trilogy of books. It is the story of an artificial intelligence spontaneously emerging on the internet. A new lifeform is suddenly born. Because this entity is discovered by a teenage girl, aspects of these books can have the feeling of "young-adult" or "teen-lit." However, that does not interfere with the level of entertainment these stories provide. There is a great deal of science and philosophy presented here, as well as much information about the internet and its history. These novels are thought-provoking. Be sure to read Wake, Watch, and Wonder in the proper order. You will have a good time.
    Michael Travis Jasper, author of the novel "To Be Chosen"

    Hard to put down

    I have been anxiously awaiting this book since reading the first book in the series. While I found the first one a bit slow, it eventually hooked me and I was really looking forward to what happened next. Picking up right where the first one left off, the main action centers around a US government agency becoming aware of Webmind and deciding they need to get rid of it. Our formerly blind protagonist and her family must now try to prevent that from happening. Along the way, Caitlin turns 16 and gets a boyfriend. While this is a distraction from the main plot, the budding young romance does help make the character more real. We see more of the chimp Hobo and that storyline finally intersects the main plot. I have to believe that more is yet to come in the 3rd book however.

    This one seems to move at much brisker pace than the first. Of course it doesn't hurt that this time around, we're already familiar with most of the cast and so we're not wasting any time getting to know them. I literally had a hard time putting this one down and finished it in just a couple of days. Now I just have to endure the long wait for the third and final book in the series to see how it all turns out.

    Fantastic!

    Fantastic! I read the first two of this series back-to-back and would have gone into the third but I don't have it - maybe it isn't available yet? When it is, I will get it. Great books!

    Insightful, thought provoking and genuine

    The stories that we read define our expectations and in many ways our reality also.
    Stories like this one remind us to choose which stories we identify with and the type of world we create as a result.

    Disappointing after an Excellent First Book

    Let me preface this review by saying that Sawyer is my favorite scifi writer today and that I found the first book in this trilogy to be excellent. However, much to my dismay this book was difficult to get through. Caitlin has recently gained site through an implant behind one of her eyes. Her new friend, the Webmind is starting to evolve. Meanwhile a group of government scientists have detected the Webmind and want to destroy it before it becomes too powerful to be destroyed.

    Caitlin eventually lets her parents know about the Webmind and they are convinced that it is someone on the Internet pulling a prank until Caitlin's father tests it out. Eventually they are convinced and are fascinated with the Webmind like it is an additional child.

    Overlayed on this tale is the story about Hobo, the intelligent chimp/bonabo crossbreed. Hobo starts to get violent towards the woman who is responsible for him and the scientists have to decide what to do with him.

    Meanwhile, through Dr. Kuroda, the Webmind is able to view more than text files on the internet and branches out to sound and video files. Eventually, the Webmind witnesses a teen suicide through the net. Caitlin becomes furious at it because it didn't intervene.

    There comes a point where Sawyer hints that the Webmind will be to Caitlin like the computer implant that he introduced in the Hominid series.

    Some of the drawbacks to this book are that you really needed to read the first book to understand what is going on and that the book drags. The deep feelings that the reader developed for Caitlin in the first book seem to be lacking here.
