Publisher's Summary

The Dark Net is not a separate realm but one that stretches from popular social media sites to the most secretive corners of the deep web. It is a world that is rarely out of the news but one that is little understood - and almost never explored. In The Dark Net, Jamie Bartlett presents a revelatory portrait of the Internet's strangest subcultures: of trolls, drug dealers, hackers and political extremists.

    "Missing a chapter"

    Book is pretty good, but the audible version is missing a chapter. Give me back my credit!

    "Great book but its missing Chapter 7"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dark Net?

    Great exploration of the variety of Dark Net content and more importantly teh cultures that build up in the environment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I listened to it as quick as I could.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio version is missing chapter 7 of the complete book. Which is a real shame. I have never found an audio book with a missing chapter before. It means you miss out on the chapter on self-harm and pro anorexia. Hopefully they will fix that

    "A report on the bad minority in society"

    This is not a technical book. I was hoping for technical content but it was more of an analysis of how the dark net caters for the more depraved members of society. The book is often disturbing and makes for difficult listening at times... but I do feel more informed having listened.

    "Darker than I expected"

    An interesting listen with a good narrator but explores the dark side of the dark net in more detail (some rather disturbing detail at times) than I imagined it would.

    Story
    "Dry recounting of prolonged research that offers insights but no conclusions."

    The Dark Net is largely a personal report on research and interviews with a small sample of key figures that helped to chart the emergence of the domain. It points to examples of the extremes of depravity that can be found there, which cannot be a surprise to anyone that has an online existence. A sprinkling of facts does not render it more than a derivative publication that does not lend itself well to the format.

    "Hard going "

    starts off with a good history of tech progress from arpranet, bbs, Internet, www, pgp, bitcoin etc. then delves into some hard topic matter which is a bit disturbing.
