Sounds like a Palo Alto dreaming kind of a book based on a one-line joke. Thanks for the warning. This is so heavily promoted, I might have given in eventually.

I worry that I'll see the next book on sale and will forget how much this one didn't work for me, or think "Ray Porter's narration will make up for everything else!"

Maybe the AIs in that world go crazy from sensory deprivation, but reading about all those Bobs would make me crazy from sensory overload.

I tend to want to remember and care about the characters I read, and trying to keep track of all of these Bobs was exhausting. Also, weirdly enough, even though I was trying to keep track of them, I still mixed them up every once in a while. For a while I thought Original Bob was Bill and Bill was Original Bob.

I get the feeling that all those Bobs might have been one of those story ideas that sounded really fun in theory but just can't work very well for a reader.
