This is a very interesting read, full of ideas and with a highly-unusual narrator figure to provide a god-like point of view. Other reviews have outlined the story so I won’t go into details, but the tale was refreshingly different and the main character Kego was imagined well. Some of the humour was a bit hit and miss (the ‘comical’ names of some of the people mentioned didn’t fit well with the general style) and it did often seem as if the robots had more personalty than the humans – though I accept the author did deliberately play on this theme at times. If this had been properly edited, polished and proofed I would not have hesitated to give it a solid four stars; unfortunately it isn’t, so I can’t. Having said that, the story and the philosophies within were strong enough to keep me reading despite the distracting typos, so credit where it’s due.
