Summary

In the sixth decade of the 21st century, Earth has been transformed. Nanotechnology has been perfected, giving humans the ability to change their environment and themselves down to the cellular level. And the study of the mind has brought a revolution in human psychotherapy and artificial intelligence. It's a sane and perfect world. Almost.

Robotic voice

I really struggled to engage with the story due to the robotic like narration and so I couldn't finish this audio book, I much prefer a more jovial relaxed inflection in the voice.

I expected a novel, not short stories

Would you try another book from Greg Bear and/or Christine Williams?

Yes, Greg Bear is a good writer.

Would you ever listen to anything by Greg Bear again?

Yes.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Christine Williams?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I wish you would separate sci-fi and fantasy. They may be the same for someone who doesn't care for either but fans usually specialize on one or the other.

The publishers summary didn't say this book is a collection of short stories. I would like to be able to search on trilogies (or series) because it provides an opportunity for the author to develop more depth of character and settings.

The audible.com search engine can be approved.

Also, when finishing a book in a series, provide a button to purchase the next book of the series. It's a task to find if there is a next book, if you have it, buy it, ... and this could be an automated process to potentially make things easier for readers and increase sales for audible.
