"Hello, world" struck a particular chord with me as a software engineer (with a "guilty pleasure" fascination with Artificial Intelligence). For example, there are several parts in the book where (no spoilers) one of the characters logs into a MUD and performs different actions throughout the world (go east, go north, etc...) - complete with the standard ASCII-art MUD splash screen that those who used to frequent the environments are no doubt accustomed to. Not to mention the beginning dialogue with one of the artificial intelligence characters - actually made me laugh at several points ("How are you?" "I can't 'are' a 'you.'").
But random geek trivia aside, the story itself was rather compelling. I won't go into too much detail (want to know what happens, read it!) - but as someone who is constantly starting books and then abandoning them halfway through due to lack of interest, this one didn't disappoint.
So, in summary, I'd definitely recommend this book - and be prepared for a good story, some humor, some geekery, some nostalgia, and one scene that's nothing short of disturbing.
