An original and interesting cyber story, but the writing didn't really do it justice. On the other hand, I'm somewhat picky about writing craft, and many people aren't.
If you're looking for a cyber novel, take a peek at the preview and see how it feels to you.

In classic science fiction tradition, the protagonist finds herself uniquely situated to discover the details of a plot that turns out to be far deeper than she could have expected. But (again, in classic scifi tradition), the main character in this tale is the world itself. A weakly distopian near future, it depicts a world where some of the population is employed in meaningless office jobs while the rest are completely unemployed and unemployable. Computer-mediated games and messaging have taken the place of human interactions. An interesting, and somewhat disturbing setting.
