I expected Sawyer's latest book, WWW:WAKE, to be a pretty good read. Rob can be counted on for that, along with some gentle mind altering as he rolls out his latest ideas.

So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, 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…
