    Third 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.

    I am glad that this trilogy has finally wrapped up

    Sawyer has done an excellent job of reworking prior ideas revolving around artificial intelligence from his prior books and taking them in a whole new direction. The Webmind was created from "rogue" computer packets (those that do no have a time to live flag set) that have formed themselves into a thinking entity. Webmind was able to view humanity through the artificially corrected eye of Caitlan, a 16 year old Texas girl who had move to Canada with her family.

    In the wrapup of the trilogy, the government has become aware of the Webmind and performs a test to see whether they can contain or destroy it. Meanwhile Caitlan is coming of age with her friend Matt. The other main plotline revolves around the Chinese government attempting to close their firewall and isolate China from the Internet. This operation causes the Webmind to split becoming a weak primary entity and an "evil" other. This part reminded me of the Star Trek episode where Kirk was split into two entities.

    This book is a lot more interesting than the second book but still nowhere as good as the first. There is some intrigue as a government man (Hume) tries to locate a hacker to create a virus to defeat Webmind. However, every hacker he approaches seems to have been taken away by a large scary man.

    The trilogy does get wrapped up by the end of the book and even the hybrid ape, Hobo plays a part. I just didn't find this trilogy as intriguing as some of Sawyer's other efforts (Hominids). Considering that Caitlan is a minor, there was one scene between her and Matt that was a little disturbing. I give this book just slightly less than four stars.
