Publishers Description: It is 1777, in a colonial America where the internet, social media, and ubiquitous electronic communications are fully woven into the fabric of society. Hours after a top-secret Congressional sub-committee uploads the Articles of Confederation, a mysterious internet plague breaks loose in the cloud, killing any user who accesses a networked device. Seven in ten Americans are dead, the internet is abandoned. Seizing the moment, the British take control of New York and Philadelphia, scattering what little remains of the rebellion.
Review: I just could not get into this novel. The idea that our forefathers had technology of a high order but still live in an era of mostly non-tech, is a big stretch. Besides the gaping plot hole this was really boring. Boring characterization coupled with a real lack of movement made Jack a Dull Boy.
