4.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated, Layered, Twisty 20 Sept. 2014
By Pop Bop - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you read just the blurbs and summary for this book you'll feel like you've already read it even before you start. A super-interconnected-web-brain is supposed to know all, runs amok, and now we have to stop it: blah -blah - blah, " Hello, internet HAL". That's what I thought when I started. Well, I was wrong; I deeply underestimated the interesting and rewarding things going on here and I apologize for my bad thoughts.

To be fair, a one sentence summary would read sort of like what I just wrote. But then again, a one sentence summary of "Moby Dick" would only tell you that some intense guy goes fishing and has a bad time. So, what else is going on here?

Well, we have a tormented, lost child prodigy hero, and he is interesting and thoughtful instead of annoying or a drama queen. We have a creepy/genius? neighbor. We have another creepy/really-creepy neighbor. We have a couple of lost soul characters showing up every now and then to scream cryptic guidance. We have a hot, manipulative, creepy-good?-or-creepy-bad?, female neighbor. All of these people are ingredients that go into the stew.

Our hero is a professional focus group manipulator, and it begins to dawn on all of the interesting characters that all of the tech obsessed ipod-people zombies are like a huge wired in global focus group. How can we do good?, make a buck? attain world power? pick stocks better? with this knowledge and a room full of super computers.

That gives you the gist of it, but there are twists and turns and we drift into a surprisingly satisfying noirish mystery about two-thirds in. Total bonus plotting and character stuff that I didn't see coming and that jumps into high gear just when it seems like the book is drifting back into a predictable sort of ending.

And get this. These guys talk about stuff like the collective subconscious, religion, the search for authority, and existential meaning, and it does not feel like a freshman dorm bull session. (Maybe a grad level bull session, but still.)

On top of it all, you can see, read and understand the drawing. Not too dark; no ridiculous fonts that you can't read. Serviceable backgrounds with clean expressive character action in the foreground. No manic draftsman show boating. The drawing supports and enhances the story; it fills in and clarifies and doesn't get in the way.

So, good story, nice twisty variations, appealing, or at least interesting, characters, and good graphics. I'm a happy downloader.

Please note that I found this book while browsing kindleunlimited freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling story that slowly bends your mind 19 Mar. 2014
By Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
After meeting the author I picked up this novel- wow what a story! The writing is superb and the illustrations add an edge and darkness which kept me intrigued, nervous and very entertained! The whole first book feels like you're exploring the surface of a much larger and compelling tale with mind-bending unexpected twists. Just fantastic!

An amazing cast of characters. They are either crazy or way too smart.
It's a story line that will captivate you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Talented Mr. Rosenberg 27 Jan. 2014
By Miss Moss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I continue to be impressed by the weird, wonderful brain of Louis Rosenberg. His previous works - EONS and UPGRADE - were masterful visions of a sometimes dystopian future, but Monkey Room is something different altogether. This is a vision of where we're headed not eventually, but NEXT.

From focus groups to groupthink, this is a story about how technology not only shapes our lives, but our minds. Can't wait for the next installment...
