Recommends it for: anyone fed up with the corruption of the US Government
LOVED it! Can't WAIT for the sequel!
Started it the day before Labor Day, then spent all day on Labor Day soaking it in. Great plot, lots of action, the sci-fi elements were quite believable.

The technologies showcased in the book truly would cause fundamental transformations of our economic and political realities. If only!

I wasn't sure at first about reading this book when my husband said I should read it, but I am so glad that I did! This book had me laughing aloud in places, and on the edge of my seat. This was the first book I read on a Kindle and I could not put it down, I finished it in one sitting. I immediately told my dad he had to read this book, and he loved it too.

Fantastic! What a fun ride. This is the first book I read on a Kindle, and the only way I was able to put it down was because the battery ran out. Very exciting story, I enjoyed it very much. Now can't wait to read the next part!
