Alex Fine is a gifted eighteen-year-old with an extraordinary ability to transport himself through the optical passageways of the Internet.
While inside the digital web, Alex is capable of downloading databases, manipulating archived data, and traveling to any destination in the world. Alex discovers his powers just as he is ready to enroll in his freshman year at a prestigious West Coast university, causing an unexpected detour in his plans. In a short period of time, Alex Fine becomes one of the richest people in the world, with virtually limitless power.
In a hastily arranged scheme, Alex transforms into a digital Robin Hood, as he steals money from a criminal oligarch to fulfill his philanthropic goals. It is the story of a young man who wants to use his powers for good, but makes mistakes en route to discovering the truth behind his supernatural abilities.
My Review: Alex Fine can go through the internet. Cool or not? It's definitely cool, but whats the catch? I'd love to be able to travel through the internet. Downloads and getting thins done quicker. Sure, you can become rich and powerful fast, heck anyone would love that.
Overall, Alex tries to use this power for good, but a few mistakes will be made along the way. After all he just figured out he has this power right as he was going to enter his first year of school. So it's going to take some time to get a handle on everything and really be able to use this gift for good.
The details and technology terms are on point. It's fast paced, keeps you entertained, and was a really refreshing read from my usual norm. Plus I love a good tech book. Overall I loved it and can't wait to read more. Worth the read and this is an author to watch.
