  • review: An interesting book if only for its narrations about an AI that is comprehending human language and what it means to 'accurately' interpret linguistic phrases. The rest of it was interesting at the start - a generational spaceship that is going to colonise a star systel - but it went nowhere and was disappointing. The bits about overestimating space travel, and that the biomes we need cannot function properly in space was interesting, as was the need for social organisaiton. But it all went more into drama and social commentary - overused at times - especially disappointing with no 'ending' that could be of interest. No doubt the author has a great grasp on the practicalities of space travel and how to wrench stories from them, but this is not my interest.,
