It's an interesting mystery by itself, but without knowing it's from 1984 you might be wondering a bit about the strange computer slang and references to middle-aged Korean war veterans.

A massive award winner that is too dated and uninteresting. Written in the early 1980s, the book has to explain what a cursor is. It worries about artificial intelligence and the possibility of a system that is basically what the internet turned out to be. I just never cared, especially about the 50-year-old hero who gets to have repeated sexual bouts with a 25-year-old, huge-breasted Vietnamese woman. Bechdel test: Fail. Grade: C+
If tempted anyway, the narration is excellent.
