By Jacob S. Good on June 12, 2009
Along the lines of Douglas Coupland, a mastermind amongst the techy fiction books, Omaha Dave injects you into an acronym filled world of some rich computer geeks.

The story goes through what a typical geek would dream about, some people get into trouble, and the geeks outsmart the bad guys, win, and get away with it.

There are some rough context switches and a few mistakes with names, but overall the book is quite detailed (with great little definitions injected into the dialog) and moves quickly.

If you liked JPod or Microserfs, then you'll like Omaha.

(Disclaimer, I am a personal friend of the author, but I read his book with as much of a critic eye as he has in my past as a student.)

Not as much about Omaha as the title lets on, but enjoyable. I would prefer a little more drama where there is currently discussion of the computer aspect of things. In addition to this, it seems as though the club owner and his comrades were basically gods and could not be stopped. It would have been nice if they had been presented as a little more mortal.

In the event that their god-like status' were a little more matched by their foes, this book would have been a real page-turner. That said, it's still worth a read. All in all, a good first novel for the author.

Every year, America becomes more and more intertwined with the internet. "Omaha" tells the story of this trend's most fearful result, a society where the internet is used for oppression. The hero is a man who isn't entirely in touch with the complex and geeky world around him, and must rely on the help of his dear geeky girlfriend in order to get by as they fight against a drug cartel who are more computer savvy than you would believe. "Omaha" is a technological thriller sure to please.

I read the e book and had to have a paper copy wonderful follows Virgil's Aeneid. I never knew Omaha was like that.
