Little Computer People
by Galen Surlak-Ramsey





When Gabe created the world’s first sentient program, Pi, he thought things couldn’t get better.

Now he’s pretty sure things couldn’t get worse.

After a colossal error on Gabe’s part, Pi turns into a binary monster along the lines of HAL, GLaDOS, and SHODAN. As she goes on the rampage, the only thing rendering her mostly harmless is the fact that she doesn’t fully understand the physical world...yet.

But she’s learning.

And unless Gabe quickly finds a way to rein her in or shut her down, the next time Pi starts a fire, it won’t just be his empty house that goes up in flames.

If you’re a fan of Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, or Terry Pratchet, then this is a novel for you.



Even though I’m agnostic, I like to wear a WWJD bracelet on my wrist. It reminds me to dream big, and dreaming big is what changes the world. Dreaming big is the antidote to that poison called impossible. And what better dreamer was there than Christ? After all, he had the gall to suggest that a tax collector could be more righteous than a Pharisee, that he had the authority to forgive any sin, and that he and his followers would have life eternal. Granted, he was nailed to a cross for those dreams, but you can’t say he wasn’t dedicated to his work.

While I won’t address the veracity of his claims, I will say this: it’s been two thousand years since he gave the priests the middle finger, and we’re still talking to him, still inviting him to dinner, and still throwing him a birthday party every year. So no matter how you cut it, the man got results.

And that’s what I’m after as well. Ground-breaking, mind-blowing results. And though I’m going to do everything I can to avoid getting skewered by a Roman centurion, it’s easy to see how Christ and I have a lot in common. One might even go as far as to say I am Christ-like. The truth of the matter is, however, I don’t want to be the Son of God. That’s far beneath my ambitions. I want to be God Himself. Correction, I will be God Himself. All that’s stopping me at this point is the push of a button.



I loved the storyline and was very intrigued by the concept!  It sounded like a summer blockbuster movie that was bound to sell out!

I really enjoyed the witty banter between Pi and Gabe.  At many times, I almost forgot I wasn’t listening to an actual real-life father and daughter bickering at each other lol.

I really liked that the chapter numbers were written in binary and that the chapter titles were written as though code.  It just gave it that extra something to show this was a true I.T./computer-world book.  I appreciated the author taking the time to consider even those smaller details.

It’s clear that the author is well versed in Internet Technologies and Artificial Intelligence and brings it down to a level that can easily be understood and enjoyed by all readers.

Unfortunately, I did have one big problem with this book.  I hated the disgusting disdain and objectivation of women by both Gabe and his friend, Jimmy that is featured throughout this book.  Not to mention all the racial slurs.  It added no value to the story!  In fact, it almost stopped me from finishing this book.  I was shocked to see a book that is supposed to be about A.I. have this kind of focus and attitude toward women and races.  These passages seemed unfitting, out of place, and did not add any positive aspect to the actual story.  I am not sure if the author put this in targeting more of a male audience or that’s how he saw the characters, or what, but it really detracted from the storyline and left a sour taste in this readers mouth.

Also, the romance plot seemed unnecessary.  The author had a good story focusing on Pi turning on Gabe but seemed to have got distracted with these sub-plots, which sadly took away from the main story!

 I think this story had so much promise and with a bit more action, suspense, and finesse – this could have been gold!

This book has a lot to offer readers such as Internet Technologies, Artificial Intelligence, fantasy, adventure, suspense, action, adrenaline, humor, love, romance, friendship, and so much more!

Even if you’re not an I.T. or A.I. buff this book is still easy to follow and understand.

All in all, I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend this book to all I.T., A.I., fantasy, and action readers!
