it was amazing

A fun book in the Sam Spade style morphed as an intelligent android moonshining as a detective. One of the aspects I like the most are the quaint references to technological developments as future events such as asking who'd want an overpriced computer in the home...after all, what would you do with one? Add up the checkbook? I remember those lines from pre-personal computer days, so I guess I "get" the humor. A fun read with lots of old fashioned Sam Spadish action and "dames". I recommend it as a nice break from serious reading matter.
