This audiobook shines light on the dark corners of the Internet and demonstrates how the human mind adjusts, rebels, and often malfunctions when wandering through the cyber landscape. Why do our inhibitions vanish? Why do we so easily abandon our sense of privacy? And why does time seem suspended? Aiken likens accessing the Internet to visiting a foreign land, and if that's the case, narrator Rachel Fulginiti serves as an ideal travel guide, her reassuring, conversational voice leading listeners through the endless cyber locales.Things become especially scary when Aiken looks into the effects of the Internet on children and when she peers into the Deep Web--the 99% of the Internet that is not available to Internet search engines and is composed of inaccessible databases and illegal activity.
