WWW : Wake

Book 1

WWW:Wake is a gripping story with a novel premise and almost flawless execution. I would have loved if the story had gone on past where Caitlin realizes just who exactly she is talking to. There is just the right amount of facts to keep things real and be thought provoking without bogging the reader down. I especially enjoyed the sections where the Internet entity Webmind was struggling towards sentience.

The quotes interspersed through the narrative were particularly powerful. I can't wait to see what else Sawyer has in store -- preferably more on Webmind -- but I'm sure that it will be worth seeing even if it's not.

"One of the foremost science fiction writers of our generation"(SF Site) comes to Ace with a trilogy of the Web's awakening.

Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a genius at math-and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes. While exploring this amazing realm, she discovers something-some other-lurking in the background. And it's getting more and more intelligent with each passing day . . .
