Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

The Patterson's loved their happy home; an idyllic 4th generation domicile based on the most advanced nanoengineering specifications. However, news has reached their ears that an even more advanced model has come out, the 4.5! With everyone else in the neighborhood set to upgrade, they don't want to get left behind. And really, with such marvelous technology at their disposal, what could possibly go wrong? Domicile 4.5 is a story of technological and domestic bliss, and the horrors that wait just around the corner.

Wonderfully written!Thanks for sharing it...

Very interesting! Such good technology--made inert by the greed and slackness of man. We are still not ready, and may never be--for such good things to be reality, since with great wisdom comes great sorrow. Good reading, only a few errors!
