What other book might you compare Infinity Born to and why?
The other books I would compare this to would be other books by this same author or possibly the Abraham Falls/David Archer book I AM SAL with some story differences but similar sci-fi concept.
Any additional comments?
This book is very fast paced and a great way to pick up some knowledge about artificial intelligence and super computers capable of learning. Since this is a subject I am not well versed in I won't pretend that I am. Because the author gives quite a long commentary at the end of the book and tells the reader what is real and not, it is very informative to those of us who are not as aware of what kind of technological advances have been made or are in the works. <br/><br/>If you've never heard anything else by this author I would suggest reading/listening to the Nick Hall series beginning with MIND'S EYE. That's the book that got me hooked on this author. <br/>HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. <br/>If you found this review helpful please indicate so. <br/>Thank You.

I believe the narrator failed to properly transition between actual narration and character voices. Effective use of pauses would have prevented blurring of lines. It seemed as though the author had difficulty wrapping up this novel. It felt as though it droned on at the end, however I was impressed by the conveyance of new technological concepts: ASI, vs. AGI, vs. AI and it appeared as though the author did do his homework. It was worth the use of a credit and I will be keeping the book, but I would suggest better narration. It is possible that the narrator may have puttered out at the end, along with the story.

Not flattened by superficial romance or too many god references this is the best book by Richards so far. Very believable tech, fair deal of philosophy and quite good amount of excitement for me.
I loved this story.
It reminded me so much of the science fiction I loved in my youth.
Written with the economy and pace of Robert Heinlein, don't expect Mervyn Peake.
What you will get is a fast paced adventure using the usual SF tropes but all to the good for that.
The American narrator was perfect for this style of book and allowed me to ignore the pain of the long country walks I need to do these days.
It also changed my mind about a certain development in science. I rarely change my mind on much these days so well done author.
Highly recommended to fans early SF.
