it was ok


Although Paranoia has the brisk pace and intensity of a thriller and grabs you right from the very beginning, I do not considered it an interesting book, just an entertainment like a TV soap opera

Adam Cassidy, a very bright whiz kid employee of Wyatt Telecom is caught red handed using corporate account disbursement passwords to finance a lavish party for a pal going into retirement, his ruthless boss, CEO Nick Wyatt, gaves him two options, go to jail for many years or become a Wyatt's mole spying into rival conglomerate Trion Systems which seems to have developed an electronic technological breakthough in a project codenamed Aurora

The plot is about high tech corporate espionage, has lots of twist and turns expected from a thriller of this kind, but nothing subtle enough to shock you, in addition you can see some facts unexplained in terms of how the author has placed Adam in given situations, which seem a bit contrived, ..too many coincidences.
Except Adam, the rest of the characters seem to be made of cardboard with not background, unrealistic and with bizarre behaviours

In terms of its written language can be considered a very fast light read to enjoy in the beach.

Interested in espionage ?, you'd better try Frederick Forsyth
