I've read half a dozen or so other Justina Robson books and enjoyed them so I thought I'd give this one a shot. It's a standalone tale which largely ponders the question of whether AI's are living, conscious beings at the heart of it. I'd say it's a decent (though not effervescent) listen, and I have very few grumbles about the reader who generally did a good job (though I did wonder if she didn't have a cold during part of it!).
I fully realize this is petty nitpicking.. but at one point the reader pronounces HAL as "Hach Ay El" and my jaw dropped. Readers can't know everything but I thought anybody recruited to read a sci fi about AI's might at least be familiar with one of the world's most famous/infamous fictional AI's - or at least her editor might be! Ah well, it doesn't actually detract from the story so I forgive her.
