Fi Plot And Dispense With plot and dispense with romantic and the fanfic he would have written a shorter and better novel this book is tough there s a kernel of a really interesting cyber narrative in here that i found highly compelling nfortunately it s about 300 pages too long and full "OF IRRELEVANT FILLER IRRITATING REFERENCES LONG 4TH WALL BREAKING "irrelevant filler irritating references long 4th wall breaking and dad jokesi can t in good faith recommend it without the strong advice to skim when you recognize the filler partsit s fascinating to compare it to the much later ready player one which knowingly or not lifts a lot of the same premise but in a much dumber and less interesting WAY I DON T KEEP MANY I don t keep many copied of books but this is one of them I loved this book It s adventurous there are puzzles I enjoy the characters I have never found another copy of this book digital or otherwise and despite writing to the author have not been able to locate a copy of the seuel I feel like I have a gem I m hoarding but would love to share the wealth This book changed my life I still judge all the techno novels that I read by this gold standard I can t say it is the best book I ve ever read or the most well written but I CAN say that I love this book Old school Tech Sci Fi Good book If you like Cryptonomicon you may like this This book really doubles down on its incredibly specific interests but I generally like that in a book And while when it was published it was current I actually enjoy reading it now as it serves as a look back into the tech and tech culture of pre Y2K and the early days of the net Some things haven t aged well the To create a computer role playing game so real it can kill Now Michael and his team of techno wizards must descend into a harrowing and convoluted world of reality and fantasy But what they discover is even worse than they could have ever imagined For the so called game is alrea.

Easy Missed Opportunity When Missed Opportunity When started reading this book it caught me Although I m not an expert on computer engineering Mark Fabi gets to explain concepts like the difference between Virus and Worm or how a AI works without interfering too much in the narration so that any reader has the necessary

Omance particularly but overall a fun period piece geeky tech "Thriller You Would Have To Have Lived In A Hole "You would have to have lived in a hole the past forty years not to get at least some of the jokes in this book and even if you had lived in a hole you d still probably think it was funny This is sci fi at its best when it s about science making the leap from everyday life into something completely and totally beyond If you like video games roleplaying games crossword puzzles mysteries Sherlock Holmes Lord of the Rings fantasy dragons elves Monty Python Isaac Asimov pop culture Star Wars Star Trek or making fun of any of the above read this bookoh
Ps It S Outit s out print so good luck A friend of mine lended me this book and I was skeptical at first However the cover is misleading This is a great techno thriller about AI taking over the internet Twenty years ago Despite some dated references it s still viable and it still rocks I fell hard for the couple love the characters It s a great story I was reminded of this book by Ready Player One s success and decided to see whether it holds p and somewhat surprisingly it does Although the technological details are of course rather dated by now the core idea still stands and for a work of fiction is references to tech and computer science are pretty accurate Basically a nerd adventure but instead of dealing with things as superficial references they re actually considered and incorporated in the plot I read this back around the turn of the millennium and I remember liking it a lot not sure how I liked the characters but I found the story and world building fascinating iirc. Dy out of hand the virus has taken over the Internet harnessing the power of the millennial frenzy already sweeping the world And if they don't find and defeat the twisted mastermind responsible humanity will wake from its worst nightmare to find the end of the world is truly he. .
