LOVED this book, which clearly dates me as having grown up in the late '70s, early '80s. This one grabbed me from the beginning and kept me up late wanting to keep going, as the story drags you on a quest through cyber-worlds, with a classic struggle of underdog against the dominant corporate machine. This was an engaging take on a familiar theme, intricately woven with cultural references for those of us of a certain age. Enjoy!

Wow. This book hits the ground quick and keeps on going. It was both a trip down memory lane with all of the 1980's references and a fascinating, believable near-future story. Enjoy!
