Thoughtful, engaging, well researched. I listened first, but now I'm going to read it. This is one of those books I'll revisit for years to come.

Stilted dialog, inconsistent premises, and trite vocal characterizations made this one a struggle to finish.
This story is both entertaining and also very deep. We follow the birth and development of consciousness arising within a non human 'mind' and are brought into the debate as to whether this can be classified as consciousness in the same way we humans experience. All of this is done skillfully within human family dramas which are of themselves very engaging. Given the times we live in, in which AI ability is developing at an incredible rate, this story has great relevance. I recommend this audio book to anyone interested in this topic (as the details of AI development are very well researched) and also to those who just love a good human story. Both will be delighted.
