Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Peel (the Eerie Indiana series) debuts a futuristic, thrill-a-minute serial, 2099, that will attract computer buffs as well as science-fiction enthusiasts. This first installment introduces four key players: Tristan, a 14-year-old boy growing up during the height of the digital age; Devon, his desensitized clone; policewoman Taki Shimoda; and Genia, a crafty 16-year-old crook who resides in the Underworld. The "doomsday" nightmare begins when Devon, born and raised without human interaction, unleashes a computer virus that spurs a series of mechanical failures and mass deaths. Tristan (unaware that he has a clone) accidentally logs on to Devon's account, discovers the virus and temporarily stops it in its tracks. In doing so, he exposes his identity to Devon and places himself in grave danger. Enter Shimoda, who is determined to discover the root of the recent chaos, and Genia, who holds a vital computer chip that could either save or destroy the world. With action whirling at a dizzying rate around all four figures, readers may be left too breathless to analyze their motives, morals and connections to one another, which is just as well since these issues are, for the most part, swept under the rug. Characters are less thoroughly developed than their cyber-game of cat and mouse, which leads to a cliff-hanger ending just as civilization is about to fall. Ages 8-13. (Sept.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    An Eye Opener!

    I have just finished this book today, and it really opened my eyes up to the future. I have to say that this is the best book I have ever read, it's got action, sci-fi, cloning, and spaceships. To all those who love sci-fi I highly recommand that you read this book, it actually got me into reading books. I didn't really care to read books before this, I plan to get the rest of this series, and to think this was just sitting in my desk sense 1999!

    Doomsday

    this story was a different story. It was one of the only stories i found that had a computer and action in the saem story. well i would have to say that this book was pretty good. There are hackers that try to hack the net, which is the head honcho of the world, and this person name Tristan, the main character, triies to find his identity. He opens a virus name doomsday.exe and he ends up stopping it from spreaing he thinks. It spreads and if you read you'll find out whether anything is destroyed, which some things are, or nothing is destroyed.

    Great Read

    Okay, I recently turned 18 and i found this book through my girlfriend's little brother's bookfair, I think he is in 3rd grade. This book was very surprising, it was a real page turner. I finished this book, and saw there was another, now i need to get them all to see how the series will end. To all the big sci-fi fans out there, this is a great read. Hell, if any of you out there are just trying to find something to get you're kids to read, this series just might be it!

    It may be great but . . .

    I read this book for a teen book discussion group I was hosting. It is filled with suspense, mystery, intrique, technical information, and even explores the possiblities surrounding DNA and cloning. But . . . there was one issue that kept thwarting my enjoyment. Here is a 13/14 y/o boy with a girlfriend whom he 'can't bare to live without'. I feel that the description of his feelings about his girlfriend are too adult for younger teen readers. The relationship, however, plays a very minor role in the development of the plot of this first book of the Doomsday series. I give this book 3 stars because of its possible psychological impact and hope the relationship does not mature throughout the series. On a more positive note: this is an interesting and captivating series involving science technology and biology.

    The Target book

    I have read alot of books in my life. This one stood out to me. I give it five stars because I know for one reason that most young readers out there have to agree that we love a good book. This one is full credit because it first of all is in the future, and second is that the adventure is the whole series. Thats why I give it five stars

    Futuristic action packed suspense

    Doomsday, the first book in the 2099 series got me hooked on. It's filled with suspense and action. I love the series and now I have started reading other books by John Peel because this one was so good. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

    Impressive

    I LOVED this book! It is the start of the 2099 series. It was creative and held my intrest along with the intrest of my mother and my grand mother. He really left a major cliffhanger in the end and wanted you to pick up the next one and read it. Execlent!

    Doomsday is terrific

    I am 19 yrs old and i think that Doomsday is a terrific book not only for children but for adults as well. It is a book that you just can't stop reading. I read it from front to back in one day, it keeps you in suspense you dont know whats going to happen next.
