Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Techno-thrillers

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post a new Top Ten list prompt. This week’s list is a Freebie – whatever list you want! Because today is also the first ever National IT Professionals Day (and I just happen to BE an IT professional), I decided to use technology as the inspiration for my list. Here it is – my Top Ten Techno-thrillers. Some feature modern-day, “we’re-almost-there” technology, and a few are set farther into the future, but all are fast-moving, technology driven stories that I’ve enjoyed. Don’t forget to leave a link to your own post in the comments!

  1. I’ve heard about techno-thrillers, but haven’t given them a lot of thought, but just by the titles and covers, they seem interesting! I know of Michael Crichton and I’ve seen Prey floating around, though can’t remember reviews.

  2. I had heard so much hype about Snow Crash, but when I read it I didn’t love it as much as I had expected to, which was a little disappointing. But I have Neuromancer on my TBR list for this fall. I’ve been promised I’ll definitely enjoy that one, so we’ll see!
