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. When a Japanese researcher develops a new signal-processing implant that might give her sight, she jumps at the chance, flying to Tokyo for the operation. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. Once the implant is activated, 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.

3.0 WWW: Wake
Even after a nice, long palate-cleanser, the last Sawyer book left a bad taste in my mouth, so I was fully prepared to hate this one--it's problematic, filled with vision puns, and is clearly not a stand-alone work--and yet somehow I didn't. I want to read the next one and hope that it sheds some of...

4.0 Wake (WWW, #1) by Robert Sawyer
12/07 - There is a lot of internet related techno-speak (I want to call it babble, but I won't, because it probably makes sense to readers who are more profficient at understanding the intricacies of the internet) which I sometimes had trouble following. In the end, after reading many baffling desc...
