Being a person who is more comfortable behind a computer monitor than face-to-face, I should have been all for the way of life described in 2060. School doesn't take place in a building, work is done from your home, and simple tasks like going to a coffee shop are done monitor-to-monitor. Instead, I was firmly on the side of the protesters. Funneling life down to a series of keystrokes isn't what I want to see happen.This was an entertaining story but I wasn't able to develop a rapport with Maddy. I think it's the price the author chose to pay by making her so aloof. Her inevitable awakening wasn't handled poorly but I didn't grasp onto it and change my opinion of her.There were some good quotes that I'll search out and post. Overall, I would recommend this book but not promote it.
