Reading Recommendation: Wake by Robert J. Sawyer

I have been challenged finding reading time that isn’t research, blurbs for books, or part of my two reading/book groups.  But I heard so much good buzz on Robert J. Sawyer’s Wake that I ordered a copy and made the time.  I’m glad I did.  This is an intimate and personal look at the familiar sf idea of an AI waking up out of the web.   Sawyer creates a lovely character who could believably be present in the nets, is smart and capable, and has a unique voice.   He also create a believable initial situation.  I found the book engaging and Sawyer’s writing pulled me right on through without a hitch.  This is an easy read – I think it took me about four hours to rip through.  Wake is appropriate for teenagers and adults.
