The book Deadline Y2K is about what might have happened on January 1st 200. It describes two interesting characters. One is a computer programer who wants to find a solution to the Y2K computer bug, and the other is a successful businessman who's only interest is making an ungodly amount of money. The story is very well written and some of the events described are very realistic. Mark Joseph's new novel raises some startling and often disturbing questions about the potential effects of the Y2K "bug" and the very nature of millenialism itself-all within the framework of an entertaining narrative.

Mark Joseph Deadline Y2K. Stand still you ever-moving spheres of heaven, That time may cease and midnight never come. That’s geek jargon for Year 2000. Copeland repeated the acronym like a mantra, Y2K, Y2K. Doc looked his boss up and down, sneering at his perfectly coifed hair, impeccable grooming, Savile Row suit and Italian wingtips. You have that look in your eye, Donald.

Deadline Y2K book ?" in an unforgettable way, published just one year before the coming of the Millennium.

Of course, today it all seems a bit silly, and more horrific disasters have replaced our fear of technology's collapse with the fear of school shootings, terrorism and climate change, but it's still a book that will bring you back to the days when anything seemed possible, oddly just a mere eighteen years ag. .

D minus sixty and counting. At 10:00 the bug had crashed into Brazil and Venezuela, mowing down oil wells, pipelines, and refineries like blades of steel wheat. Mines, railroads and chemical plants, the basic industries on which an economy is built, teetered on the brink of ruin across the plains and mountains of South America. The first systems to crash were often pollution controls. When date-sensitive sensor controls failed, gaseous and liquid effluvia either spewed into the air and water, or backed up the operation and shut it down.

Mark Joseph's new novel raises some startling and often disturbing questions about the potential effects of the Y2K "bug" and the very nature of millenialism itself--all within the framework of an entertaining narrative. Joseph writes to romp here: the action is crisp, the characters are believable (due to some good research and detective work)and the plot flows full steam ahead to a conclusion we should all expect( that IS why we bought the book). There's even some interesting insight along the way. Take it for what it is, kick back, and learn a little about the "bug." All in all, a fine novel by an author who knows how to make us think "techno." Three Stars!

Since I work in the computer industry and have for the past 15 years, I am well aware of the Y2K bug. For someone who knows nothing about computers, this book is like reading a horror story. Everything that has a computer in it, will have massive problems (at least according to this book). While many of the problems are exaggerated, the Y2K issue is presented in a very enjoyable story. I really enjoyed this book, as long as I took the impending diasasters (planes falling out of the sky, nuclear reactors shutting down, etc.) with a grain of salt. Still a very good, fast paced read.

As good as Lucifer's Hammer. But, geez, some whoppers. The anti-hero wants money sent via electronic blips, never asking how he'll get it back, post y2k.A store at Broadway and 96th with 80,000 sq. ft.? I think not. And it has "linoleum" on the floor? Is this the l930's? Worst, the author never deals with the fact that saving NYC from the y2k "bug" means nothing. In 48 hours, that non-producing, dependent-on-the-rest-of-the-world city will go as dark as the rest of the globe. Good dialogue.

Can you imagine the Big Apple on 12-31-99 at midnight? DY2K not only thrills and frightens, it rocks, cooks, and dances all over the stroke of midnight 99. Want to get away from the Senate trial, the weather, Des Moines? Escape into this book. Having read Joseph's earlier efforts TO KILL THE POTEMKIN and TYPHOON, I knew what this writer could do with a techno-thriller. I liked his way of telling a story in those novels, and besides, he seems to me a sort of anti-Clancy which I find refreshing.Here, New York is his submarine and more than a few surprises log on board. It's got hizzoner Rudy G, Barbara in concert, and ConEd in hell. Yo! New York! Check it out! This is funny! And you've gotta love a story where a gizmo-geek meets a dame and gets lucky. Right? DY2K has foreplay, tension, climax and afterglow. I wanted a cigarette when I finished. Author Joseph has surveyed the millennium bug scene and discovered a combustible cocktail into which he tosses a lit match. Wake up. Wake up. Wake up readers or we all through! Happy New Year (heh, heh).

I finished reading this book just to see how bad it could get by the end. Released in September 1999, the author should have known that Y2K was already big news, even with the Everyday Joe. He writes about embedded chips (that have no need for any date or time information) failing and causing massive systems failure. He has nuclear reactors failing or being taken offline. In perhaps the most egregious error, he suggests that the NY subway could fail due to computer error -- when in reality, it is well-known that the display board at Jay Street was never correctly wired, and all switches and signals are mechanically controlled.
The plot is severely lacking. Four geeks rewrite the entire city infrastructure in two years -- and are stuck on some control passwords! A multi-billionaire wants to cheat the bank whose systems his company is rewriting!
This book has no basis in reality. Any similarity to Planet Earth as we know it is coincidental.

The book begins in 1991. Doc..the techno-geek is 23. It states he "ogled dad's computerized porno collection" when he was 8. That means the year was 1976?? There were neither computer graphics then nor the hard drives to put them on. This lack of knowledge on the subject ruins any credibility that the author might have had. And this was on page 7. I stopped there. Unless you change it to fantasy..the book is a joke.

The book Deadline Y2K is about what might have happened on January 1st 200. It describes two interesting characters. One is a computer programer who wants to find a solution to the Y2K computer bug, and the other is a successful businessman who's only interest is making an ungodly amount of money. The story is very well written and some of the events described are very realistic. However I think that this book was prompter by some public fears that the Y2K computer glitch would do an extreme amount of damage to peoples lives. Maybe the author could have taken a more realistic approach to the situation. Overall I think it was a good book and it certainly was very interesting to read, it was hard to put down.
This book has a very good explanation on Y2K and how it could effect us all. This was a very interesting book. A must read !!!!!
