This is a thought provoking and entertaining sci fi thriller. My rating 4.25

The beginning of this story made me realize that it was a bit unusual. It is rather brash and gritty but I pushed beyond that. I enjoyed the excitement and philosophical arguments… even if I wouldn’t necessarily agree with them. The computer entity's view in the story adds a different element. Patrick and Katherine are two diverse characters and they get help from a determined journalist. Once again this is a sci fi stor

An excellent debut. A good example of "future-fiction" that would appeal to everyone, not just fans of Science Fiction. An enjoyable and absorbing read, which left me waiting for Porteous' next offering. ...more

Loved the humour of the main character, Patrick. Also the premise of the story was interesting and fun. Seemed to peeter out towards the end and I didn't feel the concept was explored sufficiently. Glad I read it, wasn't overwhelmed by the end but did enjoy it. ...more

This is the authors first book, and I did not enjoy it as much and another of his books that he obviously wrote later. I had a hard time getting into the story and staying focused while reading it. This story was not a new concept to me because two or three episodes of black mirror actually address pretty much the same ideas.
Not a terrible book by any means, just not anything spectacular.
