Autorenkommentar

A Millennium thriller with a very different twist
I wrote 01-01-00 with the intention of breaking away from my previous computer thrillers. I categorize this novel as a sort of Indiana Jones meets Contact and The Net. It has plenty of action woven with computer technology, the Mayan civilization, and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. I'm glad to see the positive feedback from the majority of the readers and most book reviewers. Many thanks for your support and remember that I always welcome direct feedback. Your e-mails will not go unanswered. Cheers! -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

In 1998, a talented hacker Bloodaxe gained vengeance on the officials of Washington DC for firing him by wrecking their computer-based transportation system code. His sabotage left Susan Garnett in a coma and her spouse and daughter dead. It was almost two years before cybercop Susan caught Bloodaxe, who now resides in prison.
Depressed and thinking she has nothing further to live for, Susan contemplates suicide. However, Troy Reid, head of the FBI's high tech crime unit, interrupts her thoughts by telling her that with twenty days to the millennium, all computers around the world froze for twenty seconds at the same time. The next day, computers freeze for nineteen seconds as if they keep pace with the countdown to the millennium. As the computer clock counts down to potential doom, Susan turns to her worst nightmare Bloodaxe for help as she investigates this strange virus. Soon they trace its origin to the ruins of Tikal, which is an ancient Mayan city located in the Guatemalan jungle. Susan accompanied by Mayan anthropologist Cameron Slater head to the jungle to learn the truth and to shut down a most deadly virus.
01-01-00 is a well-designed millennium high tech thriller. The story line is unique, fast-paced, and never buries the reader in scientific jargon. One of the charms of R.J. Pineiro's novel is those understandable explanations that always completely flow within the plot. Thus, asides to the audience or simply ignoring the reader never occurs. The complex sub-plots merge into an interesting climax where the modern world converges with the ancient world in a wondrous novel that deserves much acclaim.

Starts out interestingly enough, espcially with the Mayan angle and coincidental calendars, but gets bogged down with trying to unravel number codes based on their numbering system. It may be clever, but it gets old fast. Many number grids throughout the book, Crichton-style, but of no use, especially the many binary grids, which seem more like filler - all you can do with them is wait till the computer figures it out at the end.
Other annoyances: Constant "Mayans good, Europeans bad" theme (it's hard to reconcile the book's almost nauseating fawning over the supposed advanced civilization of the Mayas with their barbaric, bloodthirsty rituals); the simplistic, heavy-handed characterization and stereotyping, which ultimately makes the characters seem one-dimensional and cartoonish; the overuse of pet phrases ("He was angry"; "blood pooled on the ground/between his legs"). Of course, the usual (required) "tough" heroine, who quickly falls head over heels for ... you get the idea. Reading the "thought processes" of the two hero(ine)s as they fall for each other was quite sickening for its cookie-cutteredness. See, I've had to invent a word.
Oh, and does "Antonio" sound like a KGB name?
And, unfortunately, the Mayan angle ultimately flops, climaxing to a whimper, sort of like the ending to "Highlander."

Von Ein Kunde am 15. Dezember 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've enjoyed watching Pineiro improve his craft as his novels have lost their stiffness and tightened their focus.
Unfortunately, 01-01-00 reads more like a beginner's novel than that of an experienced craftsman.
The problem isn't with the writing, per se, but with the plotting. There simply is no consistent, logical struction to this book. The first "part" is primarily science-fiction, a la Contact. The second part is primarily an archeological novel - lost civilizations and that sort of thing.
Sprinkled throughout is a fantasy of Mayan gods, extraterrestrial broadcasts, and "clear" dreams. I was never quite able to follow the leaps of logic that tried to tie the parts together.
Any part of the novel could probably have stood on its own merits. Together, they form what you might have expected had you put three novels in a blender and attempted to make a whole out of them.
It didn't work. After the first half, I became increasingly frustrated as Pineiro tried to integrate the strands of his story. When I finished the book, I realized I had just spent several hours that could have been better spent re-reading Contact - or watching the movie.
I'll try Pineiro again. He shows real promise. But I hope he learns to focus his next novel better. If not, I suspect he'll lose more than this reader.

Von P. Eblen am 27. Dezember 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Mr. Pineiro approaches the "millenium question" from the fascinating perspective of a merging of computer science, anthropology, and astronomy.
To avoid giving away too much information, I offer the following.
The book opens with a computer virus suddenly locking up computers worldwide for 20 seconds. To search for the source and a cure for the virus, the FBI turns their top cybercrime investigator, Dr. Susan Garnett, loose on the problem.
Meanwhile, a pair of married astronomers, a Japanese husband and Japanese-American wife, conducting SETI research with a radio telescope in Chile, note unusual activity from the constellation Centaur.
Also meanwhile, a French bureaucrat, facing unemployment and disgrace, hires a team of mercenaries to steal a cure for the virus in the hopes that he can salvage his career by selling the cure to the rest of the world.
Dr. Garnett, isolating the virus, traces its source back to a spot on the Yucatan peninsula. At this point she contacts Dr. Cameron Slater, an anthropologist and expert on Mayan culture.
The story evolves from there.
The book is an excellent read, with two qualifiers. The ending is a bit anticlimactic and Mr. Pineiro needs to spend just a tad more time researching the zoology of the areas he is writing about.
