Smart is a brilliant book - funny, thought provoking and thoroughly satisfying. It is beautifully written, the characters finely observed and there are moments of sheer pleasure and recognition as you are drawn into a plot with unexpected twists and turns, and which propel you towards a genuinely (for me) surprise ending.
The main character is Skull, a tech entrepreneur whose company (now bust) was developing an ultra-intelligent car. The book starts, however, with the disappearance of his life-l

Praise for SMART:

What a great book! I thoroughly enjoyed it all, and at the end I just couldn't put it down.

Very well crafted, poignant, up-to-date, human, funny and scary all at the same time.

Highly recommended as the characters are ones we all recognize, and we feel Skull's pain and sometimes hopelessness, yet I found myself believing in him and willing him to believe in himself.
The plot twists are awesome too, again believable and yet growing into almost horror towards the climax.

A very intoxicating read.
