I loved the other books in the series, but this one seemed uninspired and monotonous. I had to push myself to finish it, hoping that it would get better. It didn't!

This story is a wild rollercoaster of emotion and will leave you planning how you'd fight against super intelligence over your morning coffee.
I love this series. I've followed the world's development of AI with interest since I was a child but there is exceedingly little science fiction exploring the dangers of AI at the level that the Singularity series does. While not all of the technology or storyline seem realistic to me the vast majority of concepts are based on real (and often current) research and technology.
A must read for anyone talking about the Singularity and AI safety.
This story follows on in to the future, the characters from previous books are here and the story is gripping as usual.
The story can jump around a little, but stay with it and you'll build a great picture.
Struggled to get through this due to the shallow characters through which the story is told. The material never goes beyond mainstream science and technology predictions that you will come across in Nature magazine or Ted Talks. It was like a dramatisation of cliche futurology such as AI, nano tech and associated ethical implications but missing an original angle. The author may have been aiming for a movie deal as the story is suitably light and shallow. And it might be better on screen actually.
