Format: Paperback
The Virtual ThoughtStream is a great idea and adds a new level to the idea of the artificial life-form. With the androids running the show it feels very much the later half of the movie iRobot. The underground movement add an exciting sub-plot that explodes into violence as they work to subvert the process created to protect them. Just when you though the story couldn't get any more interesting the Zanee are thrown in! Great fun and well worth a read.

Well normally I do enjoy these sorts of stories; I was fairly optimistic, but there are a lot of disappointing flaws with the story and writing. The writing itself is very blunt straightforward, without style or color. The hyper-advanced androids speak in vague generalities = `like, a lot, many, maybe' which comes across as unconvincing by these professional beings supposedly so much smarter than I am. Descriptions are bare and minimalistic - it all feels very dumbed down.
The main villain comes across as a two-dimensional charicature; no reason is offered as to why she should be so monstrously evil. Even Hitler had his reasons, which probably made sense to him. What circumstances in Tesa's existence drives her to mass-murder and sadism? Does she have an evil-robot-switch in her brain? If not, if androids have the same range of ethics as people do, then something in her background must be motivating her, but we don't know what it is. All we know is that she thinks she's smarter than the humans she's protecting, but is that enough reason to crave genocide? I'm smarter than most chimpanzees, but I don't want to slaughter their entire species.

Speaking of intelligence, the high android council - all of whom are supposed to be smarter than any human, are the most naïve pack of gullible dim-wits I can remember. Whoever programmed them certainly left out critical thinking. They accept whatever Tesa tells them with no need to confirm details, and blatantly ignore warning signs that could have averted so much of the scheming that threatens their own lives. Much about it strains credulity - I cannot possibly believe that these nimrods are smarter than an 8th grader, much less all of humanity.

Spoiler plot holes:

Maria's wounds were made by an Android's laser weapon.

Underground revolutionaries, robots and out of control AI leads to a very entertaining read. I was lent the book whilst on holiday in Florida. Not such a fan of the cover art but the books inside is a ripping read.
