If you haven't listened to a book narrated by Simon Vance this is a great opportunity. He is a king among narrators, and you have to hear him at least once.
The novel itself is fairly fast paced thriller that highlights the consequences of human interference in the wider galaxy. Set in a future dystopia where technological singularity has occurred, the cast of characters live under the ever present scrutiny of AI's who's intentions are unknown. The AI's have their own agenda's and humanity has seemingly become their puppets.
My only complaint is that this is the first in a series of novels, and the others are not on Audible. However, the novel is modular and the ending wraps up nicely, so it's not like your facing a cliff hanger.

Wonderful narration, and the writing is good, but the story is really confusing. I didn't even bother to finish. It got off to such a promising start, but quickly became obscure. The characterizations are weak. There are a fair number of protagonists, but who, exactly, are they? If I have to wait until the end to find out, that's too long for me.
