I had the opportunity to read this book and give the authors my feedback prior to its being published, so I'd like to thank them for the opportunity to enjoy their creation prior to its release to the public.
I loved "The ID from Eden," or as I prefer, "What's Your Pleasure?" There was a lot of attention to detail in the case of the Coach owner, victims. The two authors have created a wonderful book. They should be proud of their achievement. It flows well and has a great mix of backstory and action. It is thought provoking on several levels. Early in the book I found myself wanting one of the Coach cell phones. By the end, I found myself questioning things such as the amount of information we give about our activities to online sources, our dependence upon technology, and whether or not I'd still like to have a Coach. By the 4.0 release that was an easy question to answer. Oh Hell No!
Authors John Altson and Bob Lee have written a book that depends heavily upon the reader understanding the reasons behind the actions of the characters, and boy did they deliver! This book contains several interesting short stories profiling some of the main characters that were woven into the narrative at just the right time. These stories enhance the reader's understanding concerning the motivations of the characters and cleverly add to the overall story arch without becoming an unwanted distraction. In my opinion, they spiced it up quite nicely because I found myself wanting to know more about the Coach owners.
One of the things I like most about the book is the way that it had me questioning my own lifestyle, which is usually the hallmark of a great book. In a way, "The ID from Eden" should serve as a wake up call on many levels, especially where what we reveal about ourselves to online sources is concerned. I don't think it far fetched at all that some companies could use, or should I say abuse, the information with which we entrust them. I now think twice before revealing too much. By the end of the book, I think many of you readers will agree on that score.
Thanks for the heads up guys. I think I needed that.
Well done guys,
