  • Mostly good

    By The bomb dignity mike
    The first half of the book is slow but once you see the words"I see we have a new player in the game" The book is addicting and you can't put it down.
  • Meh. It's 2012 and no Internet

    be prepared to suspend disbelief. book was written in 2012 but speaks of technology from the 70's and 80's. Does the author still type on a manual typewriter? Story line is below average at best.
  • Good read

    By Arty32
    It was a good read. There were suspenseful moments, but there were also long moments also. It was predictable at times. I see all in all it was entertaining.
  • my 2 cents

    really enjoyed this book and can not wait to see the movie even though i know it will have some changes. the story was very well paced and the characters were spot on.
  • Average at best but very long winded.

    This book really should have been only about 300 pages. I found myself skimming through whole paragraphs and not really losing much. Somewhat predictable plot. Kept waiting for a twist or a turn- but never really came. If you want a book to put you to sleep at night, this might be the one.
