    1. This book, although written for the millennium, still is a good book Since we have a newly calculated doomsday theory ready for us this winter, I thought it would be fun to drag this one out of the box and read it It was sparked by a 01.01.00 marketing campaign, but the author is good, and keeps it to strictly a computer SF Mayan thriller As the millennium approaches, a computer virus starts attacking virtually all computers across the wold, shutting them down at the same time each night, starti [...]


    2. Audiobook.So I was interested in this as a Retro Throwback story to the Y2K issue back in 1999 The writing was rigid and stiff and had way too much code in it even for a Code writer The reader for those interested was one fo the worst narrators I ave ever listened to I kept to the end because the story was compelling in its own right mystery of a virus from space that is tied to the Ancient Mayans and how their math and binary line up was intriguing As soon as it started to get good, the author [...]


    3. Educational It was a very interesting read, I learnt a lot about the Mayan culture which was fascinating Although the book was about the turn of the millinuem, the insight into Mayan society and culture was a big part of the book I liked how the book emphasizes the importance of our past, and the perservation of our history as our ancestors may have knowledge to share than we expected.The book dragged at times with a little too much technical information that I couldn t understand, particularly [...]


    4. Okay this one was tough I loved the storyline taking place in Guatemala, but truly had to skim over the advanced computer descriptions and numerical explanations The Mayan civilization has always fascinated me, and the same goes for archaeology, so it was very much as if I was reading two books at the same timea text book and an adventure Don t let the date discourage you from reading this book is a good story regardless.


    5. About a techie FBI agent who takes on a case involving what seems to be the computer network virus of the millennium The technology covered is very believable and the story takes a few neat turns, but overall, it ended up seeming like a subtle new age religion work.


    6. starts a little weird, but it gets pretty decent It s too bad I didn t read it when the millenium actually came, since it would have added a bit exciement to the whole premise It gave me 5 seconds of hope for the human race at the end.


    7. I officially give up on this bookke 12 years later.Especially since I haven t owned this book for quite some time.
