Great review. I read the first two Meg Lanslow books with pleasure but the series was too cosy for me. This sounds fascinating. What a great name for an AI to give itself. If we are ever unfortunate enough to reach the singularity, we can only hope that the AIs have a sense of humour.

I want to say this one is not as cosy - and it isn't - but I'd hesitate to speculate on whether or not you'd still find it too cosy. It's edgier, but not so much so that it would lose its cosy designation. The story was certainly interesting though; especially for someone like myself who is not at all familiar with AI / high tech settings. Tried and true Sci-fi fans might find it to be not-so-fresh.

I'll equivocate and say - if you stumble across it and can read it with no little or no investment, you might find it fun. :)

Thank you. It turns out that this one is hard to come by. No ebook. No audiobook. The mass market paperback is probably too small for me to read. I think this will be a library book,

If you find it at the library and try it, I hope you'll share your thoughts about it. (and enjoy it, of course!)

Thanks for doing the leg work. Eighteen titles on AudibleUS but not this one. Loved her titles, however--all bad bird puns. The Finch Who Stole Christmas. Lark the Herald Angel Sings. Wish one of them would turn up in a sale pile.

My favourite title was "The Penguin Who Knew Too Much"
