The plot roused my interest from the start. Every page revealed something new. My mind expanded to take in the future from the viewpoint of a citizen living in a protected dome after a great onslaught. But right away, he's cast out, separated from his family, and on the run to discover everything isn't as he'd thought.
The author writes well enough to involve me in the increasingly difficult subject of computer manipulation linked directly to his mind. The plot involved me enough to understand expanding viral barriers, trace patterns, and ways of deleting rogue files and codes.
I read like an eager child turning the pages of an exciting adventure story.
