This book would be great for a gamer. Not being a gamer it was too technical for me to enjoy. ( )

I don't know what to make of this book. It started out as being incredibly clever but then it went on a "Mutant Robot Craze" and got boring. Maybe because of it I didn't understand the ending. I'll think about it and write a proper review afterwards.

UPDATE: The book is not a book, is the first chapter of a whole series. Had I known that then wouldn't had read it. ( )

Breathtaking thriller that seems to be about the dangers of our interconnected world and our vulnerability in light of our reliance on networked computers and the internet. But by the end, I think it's about the dangers of corporatism, and techies wreaking havoc look like the good guys (even if they don't hesitate to create lots of collateral damage).

I was exhausted when I finished the book. I liked the idea of the Daemon that could exert so much control technilogically, while I could have done without its ability to control killer, self-propelled automobiles that assert control a little too directly to feel I could suspend disbelief. ( )

I don't have much to say in the way of a review on this one. It mostly follows what I said about Freedom (yes, I read them out of order). There was some good and some bad in here, but overall it's a "meh." Enjoyable, but not great fiction. ( )

This timely sci-fi novel is nothing but perfect!

It is very long and action packet. There is no single main character per se, except for a dead high tech entrepreneur who gradually takes over the world.

Aside from him there are several central characters, each of which is quite unique.

Great character development, storyline, pace, pretty much everything. Really good fiction. ... Book Review: Daemon By Daniel Suarez » Katarina Nolte

What the hell just happened?
Apparently, people thought nothing of hanging their personal fortunes on technology they didn't understand. This would be their undoing.
