Alyssa A friend of mine just finished this book and LOVED it. It sounds like such a unique story.

Karen In the short few chapters that I read, I thought of you THREE times. The last time was when you were writing this comment. So, although I absolutely hate recommending books to people without their asking for them.... this is your kind of book. You have to read it.

It takes place in the Bay Area...
It talks about the high tech companies...
It just mentioned Steve Job's biography, and...
I just keep laughing out loud at the writings. They are quite witty!

Be aware that there are lots of technical jargon regarding computer language and data handling! It's a fun read over all. It reminded me why I loved Harry Potter so much...

How do you like The Twelve, or The Passage. I realize the books are not for everyone!


message 8: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Loved the Passage, and The Twelve is every bit as good so fat

I'll probably read them in the beginning of year 2013, then!! Thanks, Michelle.

Michelle I think the third book is out 2014, so you could maybe even push them back a bit. I have heard that this one ends on a cliff hanger

Of course I will. There's nothing worse than waiting for a book in a good series. Thanks, Michelle!

Toni Great review Karen! This is one of my favorites for the year.:) I thought of you when I was reading it, because of the font.
