It's not often that I put aside all personal pursuits to read a book, but I did that this time. I absolutely tore through this book and the next in the series because I enjoyed them so much. I am in the technology industry professionally, and personally I follow A.I. and overall technological developments. You don't have to be a believer in the Singularity to enjoy this book. But it definitely helps to be a techie. It helps if you understand all the things going on with regard to programming languages and algorithms. It's one hell of a techno-thriller. Loved it!

Being an engineer and one who builds custom workstations for high end CAD/CAE applications, this book tells a believable tale of how situations can get out of control and when decisions are made driven purly by greed.

This is the first William Hertling book I have read and while it might not be at the same standard as Daniel Suarez book Daemon I highly recommend this book. Its believable, albeit a tad light on details for my taste, and I believe most anyone who reads this and is a google/gmail user could get very very scared. Perfect summer read in my opinion. I'll read the second book in the series and see if Hertling can continue the series in a believable way.

The book is entertaining to read and has a few new interesting ideas. There are a couple rough spots where the actions don't fit well, but I didn't mind over looking those. On the whole, it's a relaxing read that leaves you with some ideas to ponder.

I debated back and forth on how to rate this book for a while. In the end I settled on 2 stars because as a standalone book it’s less than OK. The premise is interesting and the writing is good but the execution leaves something to be desired. The plot doesn’t really go anywhere, there’s not much tension and it really feels as if it’s setting up the other books in the series rather than being a standalone story. From about 10% in I knew where this was going (although there were two parts that were a bit out of left field). In the end by itself I didn’t find it that interesting.
