August 2015
Code Breakers by Colin F BarnesSome interesting ideas regarding the society and the AI, but the book seemed a little like an airport purchase (I think it was free on Amazon). I might read some more of his stuff, possibly.

Artificial Evil: The Techxorcist by Colin F BarnesThis had some interesting ideas about HCI and AI, but the characters annoyed me a little. Part of the twist made things more palatable but everybody still felt a little cliche and the ending was a little unsatisfying and it was little more than a segue into the sequel. I'd consider reading the next one in the series, dependent on the synopsis.
