The Dream Chip is one of the most interesting books I have read in years. The Dream Chip provides an excellent blueprint for how societies can utilize the internet as a governing tool, returning control of the political process back to the citizenry. People can vote on the day to day issues of government at home using their internet connection, no longer having their vote silenced by the campaign donations of some special interest group or the wishes of some bureaucrat! And the conflict between the TimeLink Corporation and The Civicrats is very interesting. I give The Dream Chip five stars(*****)for having the guts to include that very story line about taking on a corrupt political system by involving the internet for political purposes.Was this review helpful?

The Dream Chip is a quick and fun read. Very interesting subject if you like technical stuff, too. I read it in one day ...found I couldn't stop reading it. I've been reading science fiction since birth. This guy's good. I think this is the Thien's first book. I couldn't find any others except an electronic version. The Dream Chip would be an excellent book for reading when the cable goes down or there's nothing on television or when you are on an airplane to keep your mind off of the flight. This book is fresh and tasty...though it's only 125 pages or so, it's a main course, side dish, and desert all in one. Buy it. I think you will be glad you did.Was this review helpful?
