What I liked:

The story was intriguing. I love the idea of using science and technology (an ancient alien one at that ) to fix our environmental problems. Some of the world incidents were kind of funny. I found the characters interesting. Jon I felt was the most fleshed out. While I don't get why he became such good friends with Harry, he was definitely a loyal friend. And I find that honorable. Harry was very mysterious, would have loved to know a little more about him. Lettie was a little

There are so many different computer programs and games that this is not that hard to fathom. The author did a great job of creating a world perfect for our computer filled world. There are computers in everything. If an outside source, aliens, gets control of our everyday needs then the world as we know it would change. This is definitely a nice book to read if you know about computers or like to read about aliens. There was a great balance and I felt as though I could understand all the ...more

The Infinity Program is a technological thriller with twists, turns, and a lot of computer programmer speak. Harry, a world-class computer programmer, and Jon, a lowly technical writer, form an unlikely friendship that is sent into chaos after a seemingly harmless camping trip.

If you like science fiction that explores science, computer programming, and advance alien life, you might want to give The Infinity Program by Richard H. Hardy a try. Overall and in spite of a few flaws, I found this book a fun read.

My Responses:

Jon Graeme is a likable and naïve protagonist. A few times, I wanted to shake him and tell him to “wake up and smell the coffee,” but his other qualities outweighed his innocent acceptance of everything Harry Sale did and suggested.

I found the plot

The Infinity Program by Richard H. Hardy is a recommended light science fiction novel with a major focus on office politics.

Jon Graeme is a newly hired technical writer whose boss sends him to get information from eccentric, curmudgeon-like programmer Harry Sale. His boss was under the assumption that Jon would fail to acquire what he needed, but instead Jon ends up befriending Harry. After a brief friendship the two go off on a fishing/hiking adventure together. While Jon hikes up the mountain,

Richard H. Hardy was born in Glasgow, Scotland, during a week of relentless bombing raids just before the close of World War II. The day he was born an incendiary bomb fell on the church across the street from where he lived, so he is fond of saying that he entered the world with a big adrenaline rush.

His family later moved to England and then on to America.

After college Richard bounced through a
