I originally bought the books several years ago and loved them. I recently bought Directive 51 and Daybreak on Kindle to reread as the the sequel is getting released in September and wanted to refresh my view of the Daybreak world.
I'm a mechanical engineer with strong practical background in electronics, computer science, and material science. I found the unique plot devices and the trappings plausible and quite scary.
My suggestion to potential readers is to definitely read the first Daybreak book, Directive 51. Barnes ranks as one of my favorite near-future world builders, alongside Daniel Suarez (Freedom & Daemon) and William Hertling (AI Apocalypse)
The Daybreak books are a really innovative spin on the motivations and effects of the ecomentalist movement combined with our always online modern culture and self-hating Western liberal foo-foo society. I find the characters believable and all too human, and the technology not that far out of reach. Like all good SpecLit, it's really about the people, not the tech, and I like that very much.
After reading these I did some research. There really is a human extinction movement. Sweet dreams.
Suspense, world-wide conspiracy. It was thrilling to read. Will get the other books.
Scifi today too seldom gives conservative politics equal time, much less respect, as Mr. Barnes does, whether he agrees with it or not. I even got a laugh out of the Marine chopper pilot's remark that naming an aircraft carrier after Jimmy Carter was just asking for it.
My only criticisms, besides the occasional slow pace, are the ebook price, clearly designed to shore up the publisher's failing business model, rather than to profit Mr. Barnes, and the fact that I'll have to wait six months or more for the sequel.
