Geek Sublime explores Chandra's love of language and reads in parts as an ode to Sanskrit in particular. Unfortunately, the constant shifting in description and language is distracting and makes it challenging to connect a narrative. Historical descriptions of computer science and its progenitors were particularly interesting and overall the book forces through a plausible hypothesis that beauty is not only text but form and human response.
