    1. Superliminal is the first book in a hopefully successful series of stories about Dev Manny, an Information Technology Private Investigator ITPI.Manny is called in by local law enforcement to help uncover an explanation for the trashing of some computer equipment A VHS tape is discovered in a PO Box and reveals a psychotic manifesto from the missing owner of the computer gear He rants about a virus whose release could lead to horrific consequence for humanity The police need Manny to get to the b [...]


    2. This book was acutely painful to read I had a bad feeling in the first few pages, and by the third chapter I knew it was easily the worst attempt at a crime pulp I ve ever read Imagine every private eye cliche, every terrible one liner, and then give them a nerdy twist and a completely unlikeable protagonist.Superliminal rips the danger from Snow Crash and seems to take the rest from the Dresden Files, particularly the rather bad first one smarmy arrogance, terrible jokes, terrible car, absurdly [...]


    3. This book was a disappointment to me Maybe if I were tech savvy it would have worked better I liked the idea Dev Manning is an Information Technology Private Investigator His takes a job assisting the police in trying to track down and stop a computer virus that has somehow managed to jump to humans That part was interesting What I didn t like was the narrator He threw around a lot of tech terms many references I just didn t get For example he equates the strength of a building to be like the h [...]


    4. What a fun twist on the private eye genre This book was a fun experience to read Take Humphrey Bogart and make him tech savvy well, you get the idea Smooth humor, enough twists to keep your interest, and a very likeable protagonist Nice because you don t have to be tech savvy or a computer genius to appreciate this mystery With the exception of the technology, it reminded me of an old fashioned private eye tale I highly reccommend this book for a fun, quick read.Great job Andy Kaiser Disclosure [...]


    5. I loved this book It was sublime, no wait, it was superlime No, it was just hilariously funny, interesting, witty, and highly entertaining With the premise of a computer virus that can spread to humans, I thought there was no way to make that plot work in a believable way I would have still enjoyed it anyway, but amazingly, the author made it work Dev Manny the I.T.P.I Information Technology Private Investigator working with the police played the part of an IT enabled PI very well.The IT side of [...]


    6. Note This book was received through a giveaway.I liked the general concept of the book The details are a bit wishy washy but I m probably picky than others because I write software as a job If you re going for suspension of disbelief anyway then it s fine The plot reminds me a lot of Snowcrash or at least what I remember about Snowcrash.


    7. This was a fun read a technological mystery, some witty lines, an engaging protagonist an ITPI , and an interesting if somewhat fantastical story line, but the ending felt a bit rushed and unsatisfying Apparently the first in a series, I would read others, but I won t go out if my way to hunt them down.


    8. Thank you for the advance copy I loved this book It s funny, witty, and has plenty of character This is a back pocket book put it in your back pocket, you ll want to take it everywhere , easy read I finished it in one day.Who knew computers could have mystery all their own


    9. I admit it, there were many moments where I LOL d Some elements of the story were too fantastic a bit reaching and the ending was rushed but as a general rule, I enjoyed the story As a programmer by day, I admittedly chuckled over some of the ideas, but I still liked it.



    10. Geeky, meh Not a bad read, lots of IT in jokes including the heroes name I read the entire thing, so the story was ok but it s not a must have book


    11. This book was so much fun to read The detective is funny, charming and smart as hell There were some really good oh my gosh moments, and this author is fantastic I am definetly a fan.
