Science fiction in the style of William Gibson's Neuromancer. Very futuristic, worlds within worlds, where you can build a new persona and live that life within Otherland.

Consider what your life would be like if you could access the Internet directly from your brain. No need to learn to spell - just access the dictionary directly. But the "feed" to the brain is controlled by advertisers. This book describes just what the first generation of teenagers might be like who have a "feed". The book is on the dark side but provactive considering a new generation growing up with the Internet.

An interesting plot that supposes we might be able copy a human psyche into a computer with quantum capabilities thus given the "person" god-like powers. Of course, whose psyche would you want to give that much power? It should make you ponder where all our technology is headed in the future. Enough suspense to keep things moving though there is little doubt as to who the bad guys are and who will save the world. I'd recommend it and as a New York Times Bestseller, a good many others would agree.

My daughter wrote her name and number on the first page (before the story starts) but otherwise the book is in excellent condition.
