construction of Daemon but he did I think one of the main ways he did so was turning from an on technology to an emphasis on the socio political themes that began to emerge n DaemonIn the tradition of Brave New World and 1984 FreedomTM serves as a warning by exaggeration It s not that the events and revelations of FreedomTM are accurate or even prescient t s that the elements that could cause them to happen all exist right now The confluence of events that could make the world just like the one n FreedomTM are certainly unlikely but that doesn t mean we shouldn t pay attention to the warning I listened to the audio version When I finished Daemon I was somewhat dissatisfied with the conclusion as reflected Accidental Commando

in this book compared to Daemon It seemed a bit off the rails very preachy and without a central character to latch onto Plus the level of violence and gore was WAY over the top I think the central messages are valid supernteresting and high level scary but I m not sure he gets them across as well as he could have Kind of like burying an mportant social message nside Grand Theft Auto You can do t but most people are just laughing and running down hookers Tough rating probably deserves 25 starsThis s the seuel to Daemon which I recall enjoying a good bit Daemon was pretty popular among computer programmers for The Anarchist Roots of Geography: Toward Spatial Emancipation
