5.0 out of 5 stars
WARNING : This book may cause paranoia!!, 14 July 2010
This is a fantastic book that while delivering an exciting story, also makes you think about how our increasingly technology reliant world is causing us to lose our freedoms and privacy.
The author writes in a very readable style,explaining some complex I.T. ideas and making them understandable to the layman.The story rattles along at a good pace and I found most of the characters to be well realised.
I disagree that the book is aimed squarely at people under the age of 25,despite one of the the protaganists slogans, and may prove worthwhile to older people that may not be as tech savvy and fail to realise the amount of information our governments are collating every second of every day about our habits.It really makes you think about what all this data is going to be used for in the future as technology progresses.Scary stuff!!
A throuroughly recommended read. A 1984 for the yoof.
