Interesting universe and some touching scenes are not enough to redeem this novel that never settles on a proper tone and instead goes whimsically swashbuckling around with flat characters. Probably was meant as sophisticated and updated spin on sense-of-wonder pulp.

Couldn't finish it, I have only done that to a handful of books over the years. Just was very disjointed and could not keep my interest. Interesting concept but was not fleshed out enough to draw me in.

He is a natural transition for non-SF readers interested in taking a stroll with a dangerous AI or a neurosurgeon/jazz musician turned detective, while still giving hardcore SF fans speculative flash, incomprehensible aliens, and kitchen appliances with insec ...more
