Award-winning author Robert J. Sawyer continues his "wildly though- provoking" science fiction saga of a sentient World Wide Web. Webmind is an emerging consciousness that has befriended Caitlin Decter and grown eager to learn about her world. But Webmind has also come to the attention of WATCH-the secret government agency that monitors the Internet for any threat to the United States-and they're fully aware of Caitlin's involvement in its awakening. WATCH is convinced that Webmind represents a risk to national security and wants it purged from cyberspace. But Caitlin believes in Webmind's capacity for compassion-and she will do anything and everything necessary to protect her friend.

This left more tim...

This second book of the series, exploring the evolution of the Webmind, was more enjoyable for me than the first. I found the weaving together of the unusual plots of the first very entertaining, and surprising. And the overall tone seemed less preachy than the first book. I was startled to hear ...

2.0 Wake (WWW #2)
I can deal with an author who believes in Evolution. [which from a philosophical standpoint doesn't actually make sense. The language used when talking about evolution is the same type of language used for a deity. That says all I need to know]. However, when someone starts using disparaging/abusi...
