    The Singularity. It is the era of the posthuman. Artificial intelligences have surpassed the limits of human intellect. Biotechnological beings have rendered people all but extinct. Molecular nanotechnology runs rampant, replicating and reprogramming at will. Contact with extraterrestrial life grows more imminent with each new day.

    "Not his best."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Charles Stross and/or George Guidall?

    Most certainly


    If you’ve listened to books by Charles Stross before, how does this one compare?

    It's not his best. It starts off with a rehash of Lobsters and then develops themes from his other books. But it lacks the humor of the Laundry series, and the grittiness of Halting State and Rule 34.


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    I secretly liked Pam, she's certainly not the lead, but she drives all the action.


    Could you see Accelerando being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It could be, but I wouldn't waste the time to watch it.
