My "6-Star" Choice for This Year

Every year I suggest that Audible give "frequent flyers" the ability to give one book per year a 6th star. This is mine.

It is a near-future detective buddy story -- but much more. Haley weaves a Peter Hamilton-esque sense of mixing a real world storyline with a related in-machine story. I was also reminded of two of my all time favorite series -- Richard K. Morgan's Altered Carbon/Kovacs and Charles Stross' Halting State/Rule 34.

The narration was extraordinary as well.

Reality 36 Could have been Much Better

The Tech was cool. A picture of the future that was different and possible.
However, the narrator was very annoying. Just about the time I had finally
gotten used to the narrator's voice, the story starts America Bashing. The
female protagonist was very refreshing, the andriod and cyborg not as much.
And then the story's ending was disapointing.
