Once I began I couldn't put it down! A fast paced story of romance, computers, deceit and office politics.
Living her dream life of a Computer Programer in the 80's Gen deals with friendship, love, deceit and politics in her dream job, but her dreams seem to be sending her messages. Should she pay attention or write them off like many do? "If dreams are an early warning system then what do they do?" What would happen if she took the advise given through her best friends interpretation?
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has been a female working with computers in an office environment during the 80's! I could see glimpses of myself, past bosses and co-workers in this book.

Delightful, funny, deep -- Dreaming in a Digital World is filled with unique insights, wisdom, humour, and passion of a surprising sort. How deeply should one become involved with one's computer system? What happens when the "unconscious" decides to take over one's life via the "unsocial networking" site of our dreams? All in all a delicious and fascinating adventure that leaves the reader wiser about many things.

I devoured this book in a day and a half. Romance, drama and mystery are woven together in a story that explores computers, 1980s sexism, and dreaming (in its many forms). 30-somethings, especially women, may find hints of themselves in the characters and their situations. As humourous and disturbing as these moments were for me, by the end, I felt hopeful.
