I read a book last night called Supervirus by Andrew Mitchell. Basically, it reads like a skin-deep version of Daemon. But that’s OK.
Basically, cliche characters jet around trying to find the world’s smartest hacker, then stumble into a Jurassic Park-like botnet-and-gorilla-infused hell island and we see things go haywire. It reads… pretty much exactly how you would expect something with a description like that to read.
If you have a few hours to kill and want to think about AI/self-replication/bots/bizarro cyberwar, get it. That said, the book costs .99 cents on the Kindle. I wouldn’t pay anymore than that to read it.
It’s a book you read in between other, better books. It’s not bad – it’s just very superficial, and therefore very quick.
