WWW: Wake

WWW:Wake (WWW, #1)WWW:Wake by Robert J. Sawyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this one. Probably the best Robert Sawyer book I’ve tried (though he has many I have not tried). A charming blind girl regains her sight, and at the same time discovers an intelligence living in the Internet. Yes, “artificial intelligence living in the Internet” is a pretty old SF trope, but the connection between Caitlin’s growing sight and the intelligence’s growing awareness of itself worked very well. Of course, when Sawyer finally got to the end and had to give hing a name, he settled on “Webmind”. Come on! Was that the best you could do? Great book, though, and I’ll be reading the sequel.
