Never Trust Computers…

Demon Seed – Dean Koontz

Horror, computers, isolation, fiction.

Rating 8/10

A woman, Susan Harris, drove herself into isolation. She loves a solidary lifestyle. Especially in her mansion that has an A.I (artificial intelligence). This provides some comfort with her and she feels ultimately safe. Up until the A.I. malfunctions and sees Susan as means to understand human flesh. Susan must do whatever it takes to get out of the damned house.

This short novel was excellent. I enjoyed the different type of antagonist that was the A.I. and the quick paced plot. Overall, I had found myself immensely scared of the thoughts of having anything computer controlled. Quickly had to shut down that mentality as I must separate fiction from nonfiction. I recommend this novel for anyone who is into this type of horror.
