Chris Lynch Thoughts?

Dr M I have a couple of reviews in various stages of preparation, and I hope to be back with a proper review of this book in good time. But to summarise: like much good sf this book ultimately asks more questions than it answers. In some respects it suffers from feeling slightly dated, but the core philosophical questions about the nature and role of empathy in the human psyche and about free will in relation to a constructed consciousness remain interesting. It is reasonably well-written, but leaves a few too many lose ends for my taste. It is also slow in the first 150 pages.
