Interesting book - but let down by performance

Interesting premise and a good plot, though at times strays too far into the metaphysical to my liking. Not every weirdness can be explained by adding "quantum" to it... Just saying. Still worth the read.

However, the performance really lets the story down. The narrator often omits sentence breaks, making it all one tone and monotonous. The editing doesn't help, as you can often tell bits from different recording sessions from line to line. More importantly, the narrator doesn't seem to be enjoying the book -- just drumming it out till the end. And honestly, you'd expect some familiarity with the genre... A-one? Seriously? How about AI?

Interesting idea, but oh so slow

I don't normally give up on audiobooks (or books in general), but I only got about 3 hours into this one. The premise is interesting, but it took a long time to get going, and even once it did, the pace was breathtakingly slow.
