I’ve been meaning to read Daemon ever since Rick Klau raved about it in his blog, but I always seemed to find a reason to put it off. Brad Feld’s review of it convinced me to finally pick it up, and now I wish I would’ve read it sooner.
What a great book!
It’s so nice to read a techno-thriller that doesn’t make me roll my eyes. If you’re a geek, you know what I mean: you start getting into a novel, and then suddenly find yourself laughing at the way technology is so cluelessly portrayed. Not so with Daemon – in fact, you may actually learn about tech that you didn’t even know already exists. And after reading the novel, I’m guessing you’ll never again leave your OS unpatched :)
Technology aside, Daemon is a great read with solid characters and a solid story. I recommend it highly.
