Dorothy (the AI) as the most interesting & intriguing character of the novel allows an old idea rehash to work & work well. The romantic ending between Agent Wyman & programmer Melissa is not particularly believable & really unnecessary to the plot for me. A quick & enjoyable read.

While some of the characters and situations are a bit too pat and cliched, I was still intrigued by the concept. It got me thinking about our world and where it's heading.

This is sadly not an original idea for a plot. Furthermore, despite being a huge Preston fan, this book felt unfinished and seemed to jump around from one phylosophical issue to another. Yes, the whole chase is exciting but ultimately, not up to the quality of previous work by Preston

Interesting premise and frightening. Fast read.

One of the best books I have ever read. It is an amazing story with a great plot which includes clever twists and human interaction.
