Lexicon by Max Barry is an exciting book that makes use of current concerns about the Internet and privacy to lend an element of veracity to its premise. Every time I start to tell anyone about it, they ask, "Is this real or fiction?!" Fiction, I assure them with a laugh (a slightly nervous laugh).
