Com­ing from a sysad­min/pro­gram­mer back­ground, there is lots of mag­i­cal think­ing about com­put­ers in this book. Did­n't mind a sin­gle bit. Fun, in­ter­est­ing, orig­i­nal. Like if Neal Stephen­son wrote a short book with no fight­ing and an ac­tu­al end­ing.

Like "It" with­out the scares, the kids and the fun, but with ex­tra sil­ly mythol­o­gy.

Pirate Cinema

The usu­al op­ti­mistic Doc­torow YA book. A bit too op­ti­mistic, I'd say.

Zoo City

Awe­some premise, good writ­ing, I would have loved a lit­tle less show­busi­ness.

Resurrection, Inc.

My opin­ion of Not Frank Her­bert went up a cou­ple of notch­es af­ter I read this. If this guy co-wrote the Dune Pre­quel­s, Not Frank Her­bert must be re­spon­si­ble for the good bits there.
