Description

A curious case of eudaemonia 

Tron meets Inside Out in this funny sci-fi thriller. 

When an ordinary guy’s implanted devices are reset after a construction accident that costs him his arm, the daemons in charge of his electronics are just trying to do their job as usual. But will they manage to keep their user happy and alive, when every bit of info they uncover becomes another part of a mystery, when it becomes clear that someone is framing him for murder and when a corporation is sending a snake charmer assassin after him?

Inspired by Aristophanes' Clouds (Nefeles) and a little bit of Inside Out, this fast-paced action-thriller delivers computer jokes along with an interesting tale of redemption. 

"This humorous look into the Internet of Things is equal parts exiting and worrisome." (ScifiSelect)

Do you want to know what’s next for the poor daemons? Do you wanna meet the User? Then listen to a curious case of eudaemonia in this unique sci-fi action thriller.

I really enjoyed this book. It was humerous and very entertaining. I loved the premise and thought it well executed. The narration is well done too. All in all, this was short but very entertaining. I would highly recommend it.

Very entertaining, a very unique point of view

I thought this was an excellent book. Seeing the story both from the POV of the protagonist, as well as his "Nanodaemons". It was well done, the voices for the daemons were fun and interesting, and the story had a couple of nice twists and turns.

I received a promotional copy of this audio book and offer this review on a voluntary basis.

Inside out for sci-fi fans

I love Disney and found inside out to be one of its greats. This is a sci-fi version of inside out with a twist. A man loses his arm and has it replaced with a cybernetic one. To do this he has to have his internal tech rebooted, he was also given a few upgrades. What he didn’t know is that all his tech has been modified illegally, there is a hidden program that will enact at a specific situation turning him into an assassin. once the program is complete his new tech will have to do what it can to keep him alive and potentially clear him of this act. Really great and really hilarious. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

I love this story!

What a great listen/read in all it's genres, which are at least four. I loved the humor, the corny/unique characters and how this whole story comes out of left field. Top shelf story. I highly recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Great story in a fun neo-mythological world

This author was a new find for me, and this first try has been great fun! As it turns out he has written several novellas and short stories in this same story universe, where the ancient Greek gods still thrive and have had modern day makeovers. Great concept.

This particular story is indeed cyberpunk, where cybernetic bodyparts and enhancements are a normal thing, including a continuous internet connection in people’s own heads.

Although it is quite short, this story has many things I enjoy: it’s part adventure, part murder mystery, part romance, part comedy, and of course part mythological scifi.
I’m definitely keeping an eye on this author!

As for the narrator, he is absolutely perfect, loved everything he did, but especially all the different voices, accents, tones and sound effects of the nanodaemons. Hilarious! He gets 5 stars from me.

The only issue I have is the shortness of this story. Had the author taken more time he would have been able to develop his story and characters more, which would have likely made it even better.

Recommend!

Nanothoughts

Nanodaemons was a really enjoyable story that balances action, assassins, humor, romance, and tech jargon. It is set in a not-too-distant cyberpunk future that is exiting yet relatable. While I do not really understand much of tech and programing lingo, I don’t believe that lessened my experience of the book. There were several time I actually laughed aloud, although tech people may even enjoy it more. Overall, it was a fun read and I will likely be reading other books by this author.
I revived a free copy of this book in an exchange for an honest review.

Morality rating- Nanodaemons contains language, violence, gore, and an off-screen sexual encounter.

Fascinating premise, odd plot

Inside Out for sci-fi nerds! The premise of this book is super intriguing.

Unfortunately, the assassin and murder framing throw this books plot on a weird path that was tough to get through.

Decent cyberpunk

I wnated a cyberpunk story. Because I've been really excited for cyberpunk 2077.This sort of scratched the itch but it's not amazing, still okay story.

Inner robot voices

Nanodaemons tells a story of lots of little AI programs talking to one another, determining actions to undertake, not dissimilar to how the emotions work in Pixar's Inside Out. They are directing and helping our protagonist in a murderous corporate world, helping him prove his innocence of a crime he is framed for.

Having read several other stories by George Saoulidis, this one just didn't grab me in the same way as his other works have. It's a fine story, but the characters and the situation just weren't enough to grab me. the 'personalities' of the programs varied, providing a lot of different characters, but some were really annoying and others just didn't interest me.

Narration by Luke Rounda is technically good. It's just of a style I don't like. He provides a whole tonne of voices and character for each of the daemons, and for other characters. But most of the daemons have audio effects and voice manipulation layered over them, which is something that I generally don't like. Technically competent, skilled, interesting and engaging - well paced and clear. It just wasn't actually enjoyable for me. Your mileage may vary.

Clever and witty

Part adventure, part mystery, part something else...

After wading through the first couple of chapters I was intrigued to finish the audiobook. It's definitely worth listening to on a long road trip.
