The Cuckoo's Egg

The Cuckoo's Egg So I took a break after book six of Anne of Green Gables to read a book lent to me by a guy at work - The Cuckoo's Egg, by Clifford Stoll. 

What a difference!

A book with a plot!!

I'd read the Reader's Digest version of this years and years ago, and so when someone mentioned it at work, someone else mentioned that they had a copy so I asked if I could borrow it.

As it turns out, Stu also has a copy, and he also has Silicon Snake Oil, so I'll probably read that when I've finished Anne of Green Gables. 

But anyway.  Great read.  I could have used a little bit more technical detail but it was obviously targeted at a wider market.  I liked reading about the worm attack at the end as part of the epilogue, and the sprinklings of his home life.  Recommended :)
