5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and broad ranging novel, 6 July 2011
This review is from: Daemon (Paperback)
I read this book after browsing in my local library, and, along with Freedom, the second book in the series, it is the most accomplished thriller I have ever read. It combines a genuinely deep knowledge of information technology, which can be experienced by seeking out Suarez`s erudite and penetrating lecture on the Ted web-site, with a deeply insightful perspective on how the Net is likely to develop. The story is fascinating and multi-stranded, with a number of plausible and complex characters, and Suarez adroitly avoids the usual pitfalls of crude goodies vs baddies scenarios. I handed the books over to my two teenage sons, who unlike me are of course far more computer-literate, and they were likewise both mesmerized by the two novels. The sheer intelligence, knowledge and scope of the writing has set an incredibly high benchmark, and I have found that since reading Daemon and Freedom some time ago, other novels I have read since have suffered hugely by comparison.
