AI: You've been personally responsible for the deaths of seven crew members.
Captain: There's no way it's been that many.
AI: Manny, John, Felipe, Irina, the twins, and Yugo.
Captain: You can't count Yugo. He was suicidal.
AI: His last words were, 'No, I don't want to die.'
I became aware of Higgins' wry sense of humor and tongue-in-cheek stories through his blog. I was curious to see if that was also true of his books.
And it made for one of the best books I've read this year. Reminiscent of the great master, Douglas Adams, Greenstar has it all: a humanity-hating AI (Marvin, anyone?) to weird aliens to impossible situations. For the most part, it wasn't laugh-out-loud funny for me (although I did chuckle a number of times), but it did have a lovely undercurrent of dark humor that I found thoroughly enjoying. And it was witty, well-written and intelligent, with an engaging plotline that epitomizes the law of unintended consequences.
If you like your science fiction with a splattering of dark, cheeky humor, then this is the book for you. As for me, I'm off to get the next book in the series as soon as I finish this review.
