The Singularity Trap

The Singularity Trap by Dennis E. Taylor is another good book by the author of the Bob’s series. This one is less fun and universe building and more focussed on one particular event and story. It still has quite some humour and interesting dynamics. Less expansive, still fun and well-written.

From another reviewer: “Where the Bobbiverse novels relied on an equal mix of pop-culture nerdiness and solid SF idea exploration in the realm of a self-replicating AI who is still effectively “human”, The Singularity Trap jumps on some of the same solid SF ideas and plotting but does it without most of the humor.”

I can agree and one other thing I liked was the narration and sound effects (like a voice-over with radio-ish sounds). So very different from Bob and his clones/friends, still good.
