I won this through the Goodreads First-Reads giveaway so a big "Thank You!" to goodreads and Mr. Ronco for the free copy.

I began this book not realizing that it's actually book 3 of a series. The 1st two books being Peacemaker and Unholy Domain. That being said, I thought this book worked great as a stand-alone novel. It's a smart, fast-paced thriller that takes place in an all too believable future world. I can't wait to read the two prequels.
The year is 2025. It has been thirteen years since; Ray Brown attempted to stop Dianne Morgan and the computer virus, Peacemaker. Ray was unsuccessful and therefore is paying for it. Dianne sent Ray to a fairly secluded island. The only other person on the island is a man named Paul Martino. The first inhabitants to arrive on the island are androids and guards out to eliminate Ray and Paul. Luck is on their side. Ray and Paul are rescued by an African warlord by the name of Nkumah. Nkumah wants ...more
As indicated in my profile, I am not a sci-fi fan. In general, I prefer my reading material to be a reflection of the world we live in (which is terrifying in itself) rather than an author's vision of a world that is yet to come. One of the few authors able to deflect my sci-fi aversion is Dan Ronco. He did it first with his novel UNHOLY DOMAIN and now his follow-up 2031 - THE SINGULARITY POGROM has me equally intrigued with his visualization of life on earth twenty years from now.

Framed by his megalomaniacal ex-lover, Ray Brown took the fall when the Internet crashed and millions died. The world now believes Ray is dead, but Dianne Morgan, the woman he once loved, knows better. For thirteen years, she has held him and his best friend Paul captive on an island, hoping that one day he would change his mind and share her vision for the future of the world. Knowing there is no escape, Ray kills time with a daily running regimen that serves him well the day a hovercraft appea ...more
If this book is anything to go by, in the next 20 years humans will develop the following technologies; pills we can take that are capable of simulating all the benefits of sleep without actually sleeping, hovercrafts, wallet-sized computers, and robots that wouldn't be too far out of place in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (still no Mood Organs yet, though). And that's just the everyday stuff. Genetic engineering will advance by leaps and bounds and diseases we can barely treat with curre ...more
The best in Dan Ronco's techno-thriller trilogy, 2031: The Singularity Pogrom brings computer genius Ray Brown's struggle against the sinister and deadly Dianne Morgan to a violent and powerful conclusion. This time Morgan aims to merge human and artificial intelligence to create a super society, and her manipulation of Brown's gifted son and inhumanly talented grandson makes stopping Morgan an extremely personal mission for Brown. In an exciting, fast-paced narrative exploding with Ronco's gift ...more
Unfortunately, this is a case where the presentation subsumed and drowned out the content. This e-book was either churned out by a computer or a freakin' imbesile, because I have never seen so many combined words, misspellings, and awkwardly broken sentences. Not much else can be said about it, and I am so tired of wading through the text that my only thought is that I can't believe I actually finished it (or spent money on it, for that matter). I give it a three star review out of guilt, becaus ...more

When I started this book, I wondered if it would make sense without reading the previous two books in the series. Within the first chapter Dan Ronco had me hooked. While this book is a techno-thriller that pulls you in quick; it will keep you going to the end. The entire premise of the story is the possibility of artificial intelligence combined with mankind’s evolution. Mr. Ronco explores this possible future and what could happen when technology is distorted or misused. His characters are beli ...more

"2031" was actually a pretty good book. I've underestimated it. I'm not really into computer related novels but was quite surprised that I loved this. It has a really good story and it was very realistic in a way. I just can imagine this happening into the future. This is really not far from happening and this really makes me scared. I just really loved and hated all the characters. It was actually a relief when Ray Brown killed Dianne Morgan. I was saying "Oh yes you bitch". If Ray Brown didn't ...more
The TBR Pile *Book review site*

I believe the beginning had some big structure and pacing problems. That's why it was hard to accompany the plot and keep me interested. It has a lot of good ideas but unfortunately, the way it was presented didn't value the content. Perhaps some more editing and focus on the story would have pleased me more. The writing didn't captivate me and keep reading. I'm a big sci-fi fan but I guess this one wasn't my cup of tea.

Cover: The cover really creeps me out. I don't like it.

Story: The story is interesting, but its not the type of story that I like to read. As such, I couldn't really get into it.

Writing: The book is well-written. The author has an excellent grasp of grammar and the English language.
I won this as a Goodreads First-Read.

Not really my preferred genre to read, but I gave it a go and did find myself getting more interested as it went on. Definitely recommended, especially those who really like sci-fi and that area of reading.
About a time in the future when humans and artifical intelligence are either going to combine or dominate the other. Good book, but the ending was a bit disappointing.

Not bad, though the editing on the Kindle left a little bit to be desired (spacing, etc). I downloaded his other 2 books.

It was nice as an ending pf the trilogy, but the first parts were better.

Born into a tough neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey, I learned powerful lessons about family, friendship and violence. My escape was fiction, and I spent many hours reading in the local library. My passion was technology and I went on to gain a BS in Chemical Engineering from NJIT. Not enough challenge. Always fascinated by new technologies, I was awarded a full fellowship at Columbia University ...more
