Nulladik verzió


A Nulladik verzió, a pillanatnak ez a villámgyors, mellbevágóan lényeglátó regénye a New York Times bestsellerszerző David Yoon briliáns elméjéből kipattant izgalmas, humoros bemutatkozó regény. INDÍTSD ÚJRA A JELENT! MENTSD MEG A JÖVŐT! ax, a Facebook-szerű közösségimédia-cég, a Wren adatvarázslója a saját szemével pillanthatta meg a nagymenő techipar sötét oldalát. Amikor afelől kezd kérdezősködni, hogy mihez kezd a cége az összegyűjtött adatokkal, azon kapja magát, hogy kirúgták... és aztán az egész Szilícium-völgyből is kigolyózták. Ráérő ideje és a legnagyobb techcégekkel kapcsolatos bennfentes tudása lévén, Max és régi barátja – meg néha csaja –, Akiko elhatározza, hogy elégtételt vesznek, és... alapjában véve újraindítják az internetet. Elvégre ahhoz, hogy a dolgokat megjavítsd, néha össze kell őket törnöd. Ám amikor Max és Akiko egy világtól elvonultan élő techbáróval egyesíti erejét, megtanulják, hogy a dolgok összetörése előre nem látott – és katasztrofális – következményekkel is járhat. És ezek a következmények végigfodrozódnak az egész világon, és a társadalom minden egyes szintjét oly módon befolyásolják, ahogy azt senki még csak elképzelni sem tudta volna.

Super Fake Love Song


When Sunny Dae - self-proclaimed total nerd - meets Cirrus Soh, he can't believe how cool and confident she is. So when Cirrus mistakes Sunny's older brother Gray's bedroom - with its collection of electric guitars and rock posters - for Sunny's own, he sort of, kind of, accidentally winds up telling her he's the front man of a rock band. Before he knows it, Sunny is knee-deep in the lie: He ropes his best friends into his scheme, begging them to form a fake band with him, and starts wearing Gray's rock and roll castoffs. But there's no way can he trick this amazing girl into thinking he's cool, right? Just when Sunny is about to come clean, Cirrus asks to see them play sometime. Gulp. Now, there's only one thing to do: Fake it till you make it. Sunny goes all-in on the lie, and pretty soon, the strangest things start happening. People are noticing him in the hallways, and he's going to football games and parties for the first time. He's feeling more confident, in every aspect of his life, and especially with Cirrus, who's started to become not just his dream girl but also the real deal. Sunny is falling in love. He's having fun. He's even becoming a rocker, for real. But it's only a matter of time before Sunny's house of cards starts tumbling down. As his lies begin to catch up with him, Sunny Dae is forced to wonder whether it was all worth it - and if it's possible to ever truly change.
