Day One: A Novel by Nate Kenyon

THE FUTURE IS HERE AND IT DOESN'T NEED YOU

In Nate Kenyon's Day One, scandal-plagued hacker journalist John Hawke is hot on the trail of the explosive story that might save his career. James Weller, the former CEO of giant technology company Eclipse, has founded a new start-up, and he's agreed to let Hawke do a profile on him. Hawke knows something very big is in the works at Eclipse---and he wants to use the profile as a foot in the door to find out more.

After he arrives in Weller's office in New York City, a seemingly normal day quickly turns into a nightmare as anything with an Internet connection begins to malfunction. Hawke receives a call from his frantic wife just before the phones go dead. Soon he and a small band of survivors are struggling for their very lives as they find themselves thrust into the middle of a war zone---with no obvious enemy in sight.

The bridges and tunnels have been destroyed. New York City is under attack from a deadly and brilliant enemy that can be anywhere and can occupy anything with a computer chip. Somehow Hawke must find a way back to his pregnant wife and young son. Their lives depend upon it . . . and so does the rest of the human race.

It’s the end of the world, or so it seems, and it isn’t a plague that does the world in, its technology, man-made technology, so brilliantly done that the program is thinking and evolving on its own, with one agenda, protect itself. How can the world survive the onslaught of a computer attack? Is there any freedom to be found from the prying eyes of "Doe?" An underground group of hackers are on the case, and have discovered that the only way to foil Doe is to be totally and completely removed from technology. Families are separated,just like any other work day and Doe knows just how to mentally torture her enemies: give them computer-generated scenes involving the death of their loved ones, make them look real, and coerce her most formidable foes into revealing their locations, and BAM, they are killed. Is this just another version of David and Goliath? Can the small band of deep hackers stop Doe before she becomes too big even for them? Where is there sanctuary for the survivors? Has technology gone too far? Day One by Nate Kenyon may not be the first Techno-Armegeddon on the shelf, but it is certainly fresh and full of punch! The author's ability to create tension and action is amazing! After creating his world, Nate Kenyon proceeds to alter it, re-define it and crush it to bits with the aid of "Doe." His imagination, reaching deep into the realm of the unknown, based on current knowledge and making it totally plausible is fabulous! The chaotic feel will have your stomach churning. Let's hope he isn't seeing our future! An advanced review copy was provided by NetGalley and St. Martin's Press in exchange for my honest review.

The synopsis for Day One begins with the statement, "Cloverfield meets The Terminator in this story of one man's escape from New York City as technology becomes sentient," which is a very good description of the novel.  It is definitely a thriller, but also has a mystery feel to it.  That combined with the post-apocalyptic end of the world theme makes for a very action-packed read.  You have the man versus machine element, some terrifying horror-filled scenes, and though I haven't really read any James Patterson books, I have heard that if you are a fan of his work, then this is comparable to that.   Technology fans, you will feel like you've delved into a technological smorgasbord.  If you are a fan of end-of-the world novels,  heavy in technology, then Day One is an action-packed, gorey thriller that you may enjoy.
