Cleanliness (See “About” for scale): Trash (40+ curse words. Other content: burglary, murder, talk of sex, and death.)
This book had a very interesting world where “reality is programmable.” At first I was thinking how it seemed to be similar to The Matrix. Then, as I read on, I realized this book basically is The Matrix, just on smaller scale.
I really enjoyed the idea of DEEP STOR, which [SPOILER ALERT] can turn physical beings into pure data. Once inside the system, it was similar to Star Trek’s holodeck.
This quote describes the book well: “…turned the world into one vast real-time video game.” No Way Out is definitely good for action-lovers, sci-fi-lovers, and Matrix-lovers.
I have to say the beginning was very confusing, but I believe it was meant to be that way. The characters were all introduced so quickly it was also a little hard to keep up with them. The main thing I didn’t like was the extreme overuse of cursing throughout.
