Grand cybernetic sci-fi

I was in the market for a new audiobook, and browsing not just authors but narrators that I like. Michael Page could, in my opinion, read out last week's shopping list and make it sound ascerbic and witty. Even better, his characterisation is distinct and his accents spot-on.



Having said that, Reality 36 is considerably more entertaining and engaging than last week's shopping list. Guy Haley has built a realistic and multi-layered world with a comprehensible history that leads on from the modern day to a deeply believable environmentally-damaged and cybernetically-enhanced future. His characters have just enough backstory to make them believable without weighing them down with unnecessary detail. As for the plot... well, Otto, a a cybernetically-enhanced ex-mercenary and his partner Richards, one of the few remaining sane AIs, are hired to solve the murder of one of the great AI-rights lobbyists. One of the many problems facing them however, is the fact that the man was, apparently, murdered more than once...



And if *that* doesn't pique your interest, nothing will!
