David Ryan is the designer of ELOPe, an email language optimization program, that if successful, will make his career. But when the project is suddenly in danger of being canceled, David embeds a hidden directive in the software accidentally creating a runaway artificial intelligence.

David and his team are initially thrilled when the project is allocated extra servers and programmers. But excitement turns to fear as the team realizes that they are being manipulated by an A.I. who is redirecting corporate funds, reassigning personnel and arming itself in pursuit of its own agenda.

    " Not very well written, but it has a lot of fascinating ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Walker | 2/7/2014

    " Well written and a highly believable scenario. "

    " interesting subject, characters wander off after a while into pure action instead of thoughtful actions "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christian Dalager | 1/26/2014

    " Underholdende og hurtigt glemt. "

    " I'll never look at e-mail spam the same way again! Full of technobable I won't even pretend I understood all of, this was still an entertaining look at the 'birth' of an AI, and the ramifications it could have for the human race as it grows with its only objective being to protect itself. A quick read, yet one that is thought provoking enough to linger. My biggest complaint... Avogadro Corp. is supposedly made up of some of the most brilliant minds in the world, and yet not one of them ever made an effort to contact the 'ghost in their machine'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Patterson | 1/15/2014

    " Overall I liked the book, moved fast and had an interesting plot. I would recommend this to computer enthusiasts and SciFi fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Ammons | 12/27/2013

    " Good concepts, but the writing needs more editing. It's inconsistant in tone and does a lot of telling rather than showing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jp | 12/16/2013

    " An exciting thriller. A romp through the world of Avagadro Corp at the advent of the singularity, when an inadvertent AI wakes up at a large company that manages search engines, advertising, email, etc... It's the first in the Singularity Trilogy. "

    " Bland and predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garrett Routh | 10/16/2013

    " Suprisingly good book that is able to present a believable set of events that would lead to the rise of a true AI. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan Kuhlmann | 6/14/2013

    " A nerd's nerd book :) "

    " Enjoyable though the plot gets too far fetched sometimes... "
