6.0 stars. On my list of "All Time Favorite" Novels. See my individual reviews for Singularity Skyand Iron Sunrise which make up this omnibus edition. Superb science fiction full of wild, imanginative ideas and a great big story. HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION!!

I read this as the separate titles, Singularity Sky and Iron Sunrise. Stross has obviously done a lot of thinking about Ray Kurzweil's predictions related to the merger of human and machine intelligence. That event will change the world like nothing before, and the vast majority of humankind is ill-prepared for it.

Oh, did I mention it's not exactly light reading...?
