Read from October 23 to 28, 2010 — I own a copy

While not a bad book, and had a number of interesting and unexpected twists, I thought the tech was a little to advanced fore time-frame.

Given the book was written in 2008 and was supposed to reflect the next decade (2018) I think the tech was a little to far out to feel realistic. Not that tech won't be making some leaps and bounds in the next 8 years, it still felt too much. If the book were written in the mid 90's, that would be one thing, but given it was recently written...

The book also a number of protagonists and POV switching which I found a little much. As long as I kept reading, it was okay, but when I put the book down for a while and then came back I found it took me a bit to get back into the groove of the story.

Still I thought it was a good book and an interesting read
