Review: There was a lot of technical talk in this book about computers. I suck with technology so I thought I was a little in over my head with it. Luckily I wasn’t once it got to the heart of the story. It was a typical Dan Brown book. Action packed, technical talk, and a bit of conspiracy theory. I don’t think it was as good as his Robert Langdon books but that’s just my opinion.
Recommendation: If you’re looking for something different to read, I’d give it a shot. If you’re into computers you might enjoy this book too.
