An absolutely stunning book. I can't believe this is Hannu Rajaniemi's first novel. To be fair, the first 120 pages or so will be pretty bewildering even if you've read some post-Singularity sci-fi before. But when things start to fall into place, you'll be awed at just how *literate* post-singularity sci-fi can be. This book was absolutely brilliant, and I can't wait for Mr. Rajaniemi to finish the next one. :)
