If any one has ever read "THEWATCHER", by Dean Koontz, will understand what I'm trying to point out...his "MONSTER", was given, feelings it expressed, how it felt, why it was angery, in short, he had substance, you couldn't help but "feel", for the poor thing...this was missing here....another charector in the book, her motives, were never made clear, either, before she was 'rubbed out', near the books end.....she was nasty, but I never grasped her true motives or reasons for being that way..
I think/ believe, more defining, of the story line was needed...I truly felt let down, at the ending..
If that weren't bad enough, the majority of the first half of the book is dedicated not to this intruiging story line, but - and I'm not kidding here - to a burocratic power struggle amongst egotistical civil servants. I cannot remember every having read a more tedious, uninspiring, lengthy and pointless subplot (although I haven't read anything by Tom Clancy recently). And this whole subplot is based on the premise of a computer security breach that even the most novice user of AOL would find laughable.
Throw in a cast of annoying, unsympathetic characters (not even Kay or Mariano are even the least bit endearing), most of whom are unbelievable to boot, and you get a read that is tiresome and pointless.
Worst book I've read in quite some time.

Sometimes too much flashback when I read all her books.
