Isn't the internet also termed the "Information Superhighway"? I do think the title of this book relates to the story just fine.

The internet used to be referred to as an "information superhighway," so I believe that the title fits, although it did take me a little while to make that connection.

I would’ve liked a different title as well but I understand why it was used!

I think Superhighway represents the optical passageway which is main theme of the book. The whole plot base on this mode of transportation.

I agree. The title goes with the content of the book. When Alex touches the internet cables, he jumps on a super highway traveling all over.

The title is fitting for the story, since the "superhighway" is the internet that allows Alex to travel. Although the story doesn't focus on these abilities as much as I wanted it to, the title is definitely not misleading.

I think the title suits the storyline since he travels around the world through the interent which is called the world wide web. He sees it like a highway from which he passes through, and I can't think of a more justifiable title for the book. -R

I think that the title does fit with the idea of the internet/digital travel that Alex uses. I agree that titles are important in drawing the reader in, and I think this one was engaging enough to make the reader want to understand the reference.

Superhighway, Superspeed. Alex tackling the whole internet in what he describes as the blink of an eye. It does more than less. It just doesn't really speak on much else apart from his ability. I can't think of anything else that would have suited it though. Maybe a cyber tag?

From what I've read, Superhighway has some connection in the book. From my analysis, the reason is that Alex and some others that were mentioned briefly has the ability to travel at the speed of light through the internet cables. It can be inferred that the internet cables are the highways.
