After reading this book, I can't help but wonder, why do people always want to take over the world? I guess the power and fame can be quite tempting, but with that comes responsibility and danger. Not only that, but how long would it take to convince everyone, even with brainwashing, to accept you as their almighty leader and not try to kill you. Plus, having a real relationship with someone would most definitely be out of question. It just seems like a unpleasant life to live. Now, I shall get ...more

FULL REVIEW (SLIGHT SPOILERS)

Social Code is a snappy, plot-driven novel that, like its protagonist, works hard to keep pace with rapidly changing twists and technologies. Doby, a programmer with too much time and talent on his hands, discovers an online game that promises healthy helpings of sex and violence. Hungry for more, Doby dives in but finds that the game is made to achieve a larger goal--to immerse its users and mold them into pawns in a sinister plot.

This premise worked really well fo

An excellent book! A great story that can be viewed in two ways. This is a great techno-thriller in which modern information technology is presented as a useful tool that can help save someone's life or to be a powerful tool for the manipulation with the human mind. However, this story has another much deeper dimension that Cass Tell spontaneously controls through the book. Reading Social Code one fact is very important - why we, humans, can be so easily influenced? The author explains psycholog ...more

One billion websurfers; beware of the Social Code Society!

After encountering a sensual virtual character, and discovering the game’s nefarious intentions of dominating its players, he attempts to keep from being sucked into the game . . . and to stay alive.

This speedy and suspenseful book presents the reality of an internet world where one’s personal preferences are mon

I like the concept.. Its very novel and real stretch of imagination by depicting capability for creation of virtual world through power of internet. Its good read.

However, it couldn't exceed my expectations from a good book as i felt the depth of the subject was neither exploited to the fullest nor articulated at its best. The reading was going very flat without any stint of excitement and suprise while the subject was so strong and capable for the same.

Though this was a quick read, I enjoyed it immensely. It was action pact from the start, and though the characters could not be described as deep I did find them amusing. If you are looking for a nice, fast read this is one I would recommend this!

Recommends it for: Techno thriller lovers, online gamers
Social Code is a novel about online game players who become charmed by seductive virtual characters, and then their lives end up being controlled. The story is about a computer hacker who plays an online game and he confronts the evil forces behind the game. While the story is about the power of the Internet, underneath it is about how mind controlling religions and cults work. It shows how they will do anything to gain power, even to put one of their minions into the highest political positions ...more
