Publisher's Summary

In a perilous future where disposable duplicate bodies fulfill every legal and illicit whim of their decadent masters, life is cheap. No one knows that better than Albert Morris, a brash investigator with a knack for trouble, who has sent his own duplicates into deadly peril more times than he cares to remember. But when Morris takes on a ring of bootleggers making illegal copies of a famous actress, he stumbles upon a secret so explosive it has incited open warfare on the streets of Dittotown.
Dr. Yosil Maharal, a brilliant researcher in artificial intelligence, has suddenly vanished, just as he is on the verge of a revolutionary scientific breakthrough. Maharal's daughter, Ritu, believes he has been kidnapped - or worse. Aeneas Polom, a reclusive trillionaire who appears in public only through his high-priced platinum duplicates, offers Morris unlimited resources to locate Maharal before his awesome discovery falls into the wrong hands.To uncover the truth, Morris must enter a shadowy nightmare world of ghosts and golems where nothing -and no one - is what they seem, memory itself is suspect, and the line between life and death may no longer exist.
Kiln People is a 2003 Hugo Award Nominee for Best Novel.

ok

He created a fascinating world, but the actual story isn't engaging enough. I finished it, but was never engaged, never had any trouble putting it down.

loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Kiln People to be better than the print version?

I read the book and equally enjoyed listening to the audio version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Enjoyed the wonderfully human, vulnerable hero, Albert's greenie and his side kick Pal.

Very very good

Loved this book. Good story, clever plot, good characters, great sci-fi, lots of twists. The narrator was brilliant - took a bit of getting used to but really liked his style. Probably the best book I have ever listened to. quite stunning. won loads of awards for scifi as well.
