Reader recommendation: Lexicon

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

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).
