    I liked it and think it's a worthwhile read. This is a qualified 4 stars because there were some ups and downs for me. Overall, though, I enjoyed the book, appreciated the technical depth and intelligent near-future extrapolation, and am looking forward to Ian's future books. I really liked the near future world building. There were so many current technologies that were brilliantly extrapolated. I think this on its own makes this book worthwhile. Some of the characters seemed kind of sophomoric. I liked it and think it's a worthwhile read. This is a qualified 4 stars because there were some ups and downs for me.

I really liked the near future world building. There were so many current technologies that were brilliantly extrapolated. I think this on its own makes this book worthwhile. Some of the characters seemed kind of sophomoric. The main character was just graduating and starting his first job, so that makes some sense, but it devalued both the characters and the book overall for me. [#get-off-my-lawn warning] SPOILERS BELOW!!! Some good characters overall - especially Artemis, Tilly, and Beyonce. Some of the others felt a bit rushed, and I had a harder time keeping them apart. I would have liked to get to know the bit part players better but felt firmly connected with the main characters. Tilly was confusing to me. She spent some time as omniscient superbeing and some time as average intelligence earthling. Once her identity is revealed, I had a higher expectation for her and was a little disappointed that her actions were pretty average. The interspersed Coding Samurai bits were hit and miss for me. I liked the idea and identified with a lot of the sentiment as a professional developer, but they often felt pretty preachy to me. A chapter would present a conflict, then Artemis would happen to read a chapter of The Coding Samurai which talked exactly about the current challenge with some heavy-handed guidance. Maybe I'm too jaded as a long-time professional developer, but some of it seemed a little in my face. I liked the general idea as an organizational and continuity tool, but I didn't completely connect with it. I also felt like the sub-plot of The Coding Samurai was interesting but didn't fully suck me in. It could have drawn me in more so I'd look forward to the mini-episodes to see what was happening. Big picture: very interesting, technically accurate near-future fiction that's worth read. I look forward to Ian's future books! Disclaimer: Ian sent me a free copy of the book. He made no request for a review, just sent me the book. :)

    This is a good book. Its not just about the story, but this book give a lot of moral lesson, wise advice at work, how we should be better person, how technology even tough it make life easier but could bring another kind disaster to human

    * Really enjoyed this book and its depiction of future technology. There are some great ideas here, and it's not hard to see this as a realistic evolution of today's society. Especially liked the Beastville game (think Pokemon Go but with actual pain) and the shout-out to The Big Lebowski. * I received a free copy of the book in a Goodreads giveaway. * Really enjoyed this book and its depiction of future technology.
