    1. You would have to have lived in a hole for the past forty years not to get at least some of the jokes in this book-- and even if you had lived in a hole, you'd still probably think it was funny. This is sci-fi at its best, when it's about science making the leap from everyday life into something completely and totally beyond. If you like video games, roleplaying games, crossword puzzles, mysteries, Sherlock Holmes, Lord of the Rings, fantasy, dragons, elves, Monty Python, Isaac Asimov, pop cultu [...]

    2. This book changed my life - I *still* judge all the techno-novels that I read by this gold standard. I can't say it is the best book I've ever read or the most well-written but I CAN say that I love this book!

    3. If I had to summarise "Wyrm" in two words it would be quite easy, “Missed Opportunity" When I started reading this book it caught me. Although I´m not an expert on computer engineering Mark Fabi gets to explain concepts like the difference between Virus and Worm or how a AI works without interfering too much in the narration so that any reader has the necessary tools to enjoy reading.Despite having problems like the lack of a good character´s construction or personages who don’t evolve I t [...]

    4. Wyrm (1998) a Near Future tale in which, as the Millennium approaches apprehension grows about a world-wide Computer virus which may gird the planet dragon-like once unleashed; the protagonist scours Virtual Reality worlds playing Games there in search of the potential AI.

    5. Old school Tech Sci Fi. Good book. If you like Cryptonomicon you may like this.

    6. I read this back around the turn of the millennium, and I remember liking it a lot, not sure how I liked the characters, but I found the story and world building fascinating (iirc)

    7. Lots of great late 90s cyberpunk fun to be had with this one. I also appreciated how the author worked in CS / AI concepts like Searle's Chinese room.

    8. This book has a bad case of first-novel syndrome. Not the usual one of the story being a badly-disguised autobiography with extra colour, but the "throw everything in and the kitchen sink" one. Not that this is a bad thing. If anything, the book needs the ludicrously OTT approach to make the underlying premise work. As it is, he posits a genuinely scary idea and executes it with real flair. Sure, the technology now feels dated (well, apart from the full-sensory input chair, but I'm sure that exi [...]

    9. This kept me reading with combination of exuberant charm and high levels of geek-appeal due to all the references, both subtle and otherwise, to technology, SF and mythology.Ultimately I was left rather unsatisfied by the lack of any real struggle or tension – no matter what the problem the hyper-competent hero could always make a couple of calls, get on a plane and end up face to face with the world’s foremost expert in the problem domain (who could always be convinced of the possible exist [...]

    10. I read Wyrm in high school by chance, picking out of the library because the cover was neat and I'd about read everything else, and loved it to pieces. When I graduated, I tried to find a copy at every book store in town, and even thought about offering to buy it from my school. Finally, my mom suggested and I was thrilled to find that they had this seemingly-rare, unheard of book. I've read it twice since then and love it more each time. It's a true hidden gem. I'd kill to read Fabi's other no [...]

    11. I liked this book. It defines the tech-y exuberance of the 1990's, when the Internet was just beginning to come into widespread use and it seemed like solutions to many problems would soon be a mouse click away. In a few respects it is kind of like the TV show "Friends," in that the reader has to wonder where these people get all their money and their neat apartments. I know IT pays pretty good, but this book seems to stretch it a little. It does have several tongue in cheek references to sci fi [...]

    12. For those of you who like to listen to old IT stories, or just those who like the fact that you can recognize parts of Philadelphia in the story, this is a collection of rare terms and a mini-adventure packed in one. Developing a theory that's far-fetched at times and not always understandable (even working with computers as long as I have), this was recommended to me by Louise, and I'll consider it one of the more fun reads in recent memory.

    13. No soporta la comparación con otros libros de temática similar, por ejemplo REAMDE de Stephenson, RPO de Ernest Cline o Neuromante de Gibson.Lo que menos me ha gustado es la transición entre lo real y lo virtual, demasiado forzado y poco creíble. Además los personajes tienen demasiado poca profundidad y el protagonista suena demasiado a primera persona.

    14. One of the craziest books I’ve ever read. You really had to have been into geekdom in the late 90’s to appreciate it. It’s hacker culture pre-2000’s plus role playing plus chess all mixed together with the “A.I. gets self-awareness and is now going to cause the end of the world” scenario. Other than that I’d recommend it and I would read it again some time.

    15. The tech and conflict are very much a product of the 90s, but it's all entertaining regardless. There are mind games (including a crossword puzzle the reader can fill out for themselves), talk of psychology, copious jokes made only for "har"-ing at, and a healthy clip to the storytelling.

    16. One of my favourite computer science fiction books of all time. I especially like the first half as during the second half it veers towards a fantasy setting more and I preferred the characters' real-world interaction. Great philosophical and original ideas raised in this book, highly recommended.

    17. Over the top. I read this one awhile ago so I'm probably going to need to read it again.

    18. I probably would like this book less if I reread it.

    19. Good book! A fun flashback to Y2K with a MMORPG-predecessor twist.

    22. Found it a bit slow and unfortunately dated
