Pretty engrossing. The main character has a nice geeky feeling that not surprisingly reminds me a bit of myself and people I know. Lots of ideas for tinkering and improving things.[return][return]One thing I'll say is the blurb is a little misleading. I was expecting something Illuminatus like from the blurb, with different groups attempting to cause radical change in the real world through a variety of mechanisms. Not a bad book, but I'd like to see Doctorow write that one someday too ;). [return][return][return]Also, there's some stuff about tribes, but I don't know if someone who hasn't been involved in a similar thing would get the feel. Obviously the geeks who've spent time in an irc channel will understand, but I don't know
