Nobody beats Bar Holliday.
He was paid to find the Terraformable worlds, new planets for his corporation to plunder. Up until the day he came upon Peace Victory, an abandoned generation ship hovering ominously above a definitely habitable planet, he believed nobody ever could.
Nobody beats Bar Holliday....because he was never satisfied with anything lower than first place, because he was always the oddball, in charge of his own welfare, his own destiny...a man determined to make his mark in the world and win games at any cost.
NOBODY EVER BEATS BAR HOLLIDAY....because he only took the wrong chances at the right times. But on the planet Patmos, where everything looked safe, but nothing was, Bar Holliday had at last met his match!

The basic premise of this book, 'man creates machine, machine knows what is best, machine takes over, man fights back' has been done before--much better. The sex scenes are just downright uber weird.
That said, I have to give credit to the narrator that made the most of a weak book. I am convinced that listening was better then reading... he really did his best to 'sell' me the content.
