An amusing yet disturbingly accurate rendition of modern software development practices and the psychology of tech culture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expert author writes a page-turner 11 November 2016
By Alex Bartlett - Published on
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this tale even though I found myself wishing for more. Lucas's extensive technical knowledge woven into the story is what I was hoping for. The thriller that unfolds touches on the expertise of the users but seems to avoid exactitude by forgoing the use of real project names. And so the story reveals but a sliver of the author's knowledge and leaves me wanting more.

Give us your soul, Michael, and your stories will become stars in the canon of geek lit.

The book does offer a great deal of personality. After a decade of exposure to Lucas's technical writing this short story reads in a familiar way that I enjoyed. Gaining access to the author's more personal side was something of a treat.

Alas, I return again to my desire to be perpetually educated by those with such great capacity to share and so I hope that future tales take more liberty with real-world tools so that I can more fully immerse myself in the scenes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Naive storytelling, appaling typesetting 8 August 2016
By Mariastella N. - Published on
I bought this book on a different country Amazon store, so, it may not come as Verified Purchase, but I am posting the photos to prove it.

I debated a long while if to throw it away, or just keep it as an example of horrible writing, and even worse typesetting.

I felt cheated, so, at the end, I sent it back.

But the publisher ought to feel ashamed for the appaling typesetting job they did. And the Author, well, he should do another job, writing novels or stories is really not meant for him.
