It is cool to read a real thriller that is based on entirely possible, totally logical construction of a near future where distributed computing goes amok.

The author himself is a system analyst and DBA. So you will find the descriptions of hacking fairly accurate. Moreover, i feel the scenario he describes can come true any day now. This is not a fiction about time or space travel. It is not about computers, somehow , gaining awareness or conciousness.  Human brains are still behind the computers. This makes the book such a fascinating read.

Thanks Julie who recommends this book to me. Even though I had already picked the books during my jobless days at the time. I still started it right after my new job and spent some precious sleep time to finish it. It is a huge hit inside Google. I am sure it is gonna be big in, at least, Sillicon Valley 🙂
