(9 Ratings)
Price: $1.25
At any given moment, 5% of the Internet is hidden from view - that's the Dark Net. It's a haven for criminals, spies, and nefarious hackers. For Max Caine it's also a death trap, where reality and the virtual world collide. Join Max and Betty3.5, and their virtual penguin Linus, as they explore the darkest recesses of the Internet. This cyber thriller will take you on a wild ride into the not-too-distant future where conveniences from auto-piloted cars to wearable computers and biometric ATMs ensure that everyone is online, one way or another, every waking moment.

    Easy to read book, starts off at a good pace, slows a bit in the middle and picks up again at the end. Some interesting ideas let down by some silly imagary like DoS, Zip and ctrl-alt-del bombs strapped to the main character's belt as he faces the baddies. Originally produced as a blog (I believe) now available as a book or pdf download (I downloaded the pdf from www.lulu.com). Overall slightly above average, but it's definately no Neuromancer. I'll keep an eye open for any further books from james r. riordon!

    "More please." One of those ones you can't put down and end up staying up far too late for. Published in instalments as it was I found myself waiting for the next one each time, then being surprised by what happened next. I look forward to seeing what else the author produces.

    "Cyber-Thriller a-Go-Go!" Not many real science fiction books are written anymore. The Dark Net isn't just your romance-clothed-in-shiny-steel-with-laser-guns book, or your Klingon-speaking-gotta-read-the-series science fiction novel. This is a _good book_. Remember Ender's Game? 1984? Fahrenheit 541? The Dark Net is that kind of book, one that you can read over and over again and find something new, something meaningful. That's not to say The Dark Net is a serious treatise on the state of the world. But it's worth reading if you like to read. Riordon has written an adventure in the internet, a science-based story, a pulp thriller that gives the reader something to think about. Besides, Betty 3.5 is the hottest virtual assistant you'll ever meet. I'd follow her into the Dark Net too.

    "Absolutely sensational!" A fantastic slippage into the nether regions of the net.

    "Addictive" I started listening to the Dark Net on the iTunes podcast of the story. It's exciting and well told, with unexpected twists as well as interesting characters. (Poor Minus! No penguin deserves what happened to him.) Here and there, it's even pretty funny. I highly recommend the book (and the podcast).
