Do you mean things like Digital Fortress (Dan Brown)?
I heard that it handled programming things incorrectly/badly even though it's a known novel by a popular author. But this thread has bunch of perfect novels related to programming.

What makes it a "programming" novel? (would the movie Hackers count as a book?)
Different thread needed for movies later.

And based on 30+ years of experience... WHY? I live in a fictional Programming world, where we were just asked to deliver a small 12 week project by Feb 1st. COMPLETED, and they are still "working out" the contract they hope to sign by Monday/Tuesday of next week.
I'm also in similar boat with 16+ years of exp.

My gosh... Where do you work? (And how do you have time to read?)
Thanks to EBooks! I buy ebooks from smashwords, kickstarter, amazon kindle(Also I use kindle unlimited). My laptop, tablet & smartphone loaded with these ebooks so I'll be reading something anytime. This is happening only from last couple of years only(It was hard to read books regularly in past), I'll be continuing this forever. Unfortunately I need to cool myself with more movies & books to escape from nightmare work regularly. I'm better than before.
