The story is well told with the exception of the biggest part. We are to believe that computer have taken over after the main character begins having a very strange day and murders a man who he supposedly hired to attack him. We are never told in any credible fashion how this alternate computer universe came into being. Suggestions are made, but they do not support the conclusion. A variety of clandestine events had taken place, yet who put them into action? No credible answer is given. My vote is 3 1/2 stars, rounded up to 4. My computer gives it 5 stars!

The plot is one we have run into before: computer technology created by man becomes uncontrollable and runs amok - remember Hal? This book though adds a new twist by bringing in wall street trading. Decent enough book but the characters do things that are hard to fathom, like the main character's wife turning on him immediately when the computer acting as him does some bizarre things. In any event, I am a Robert Harris fan and didn't have any trouble finishing the book even though this one wasn't up to his other efforts.

Intoxicating mixture of science, technology, greed, and the psychology of fear. I couldn't put it down.

Really a sifi "story" because the author was "carried away" with the idea and gave the computer a "vendetta" persona .... Helpful insight to what goes on in the real world of high stakes finance.....

Could not put this book down. It would make a great movie.

The book started well and a good pace. It had some points where one questions "whodunit", but for me, it had a disappointing ending.

Harris did a great job of keeping the suspense going, and the development of the main character was fascinating. I figured out how he might end the novel and was disappointed when I was right. The writing style is very compelling, and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I would be intersted to read his other works based on the pace and suspense of this one.

I thought the book was good overall. I love the stock market and the story had alot of stock market and securities examples that were really dead on.

Once a book has met my expectations for research and plot layers, I assess the preocupation it creates in my daily work and life. How often do I think about returning to the story; how frequently do I want to see what happens next? This one did it for me. That is, until the end. But perhaps there can be a sequel...

A fascinating adventure about a brilliant intellectual, a decent man, who has found a way to determine the motivations of those who invest. Lurking though, are those who would manipulate his capabilities to suit their own purpose of limitless wealth. A stunning psychological study of the nature of duplicity. Engaging from beginning to end.

Hooked from page one, I never once lost interest in the Fear Index. The perfect algorithm of money, murder and mystery resulted in a marvelous read.
