Clever and cool

What a trip! Kudos to Emily Devenport for creating a complex world, complete with political intrigue and excellent classical music and theatre references, and Oichi, a plucky heroine brave enough to delve into its labyrinthine structure. The twists were fun, and Oichi could give any hero or heroine a run for his/her money with her audacious adventures. Looking forward to the next book!

had a great premise

This story started out with a great premise and striking visual descriptions. Had some honest moments of real suspense. Eventually the story became repetitive and didn't seem to follow any logic. The ending seemed to happen out of nowhere, and closed it's remaining plot points seemingly at random.

Complex generation ship conspiracy

Emily Devenport's Medusa Uploaded is a complex tale of revenge and revolution taking place aboard a generation ship 100 years in and 100 years away from their destination. Society is organized into a small cadre of executives, organized into family clans, who run the place with a small contingent of technical types, while the vast majority of the population are virtual slaves, whose lives are considered less than worthless. With her parents having been part of a small underground insurgency, the main character receives an implant that connects her with a cache of mobile AIs, the Medusa. She is "killed" multiple times reemerging with a new identity always plotting and judiciously killing her way towards her goal of emancipation. Along the way, she discovers more conspiracies and additional players with plans far beyond what she has been led to believe and learns the past is not what she has been taught, the present is not what she believes, and the future is markedly different from what she was expecting.

As the story unfolds on an interstellar generation ship, all the routine accouterments are present. Her implant serves as both a communication device with her Medusa, but also allows for interface with the ship's systems. Genetic engineering is hinted as well as evolved version of humanity. As the innocent nature of the implant is focused on music, there are continual references to many classical pieces, along with a recovered film library that creates intriguing digressions into film critique.

The narration is passable, but character distinction is a bit strained which can make conversations tedious.

Story is amazing. The performer less so

The narrator really put a strain on listening to the story. The way she pronounced words like button, mountain, and kitten, was absolutely distracting and juvenile. The story itself was great and would love to see another book in the same universe as it were.

Had to stop, confused and bored

I couldn't keep up with the "plot doesn't make sense so let's just say she knows everything" to get around the story. It was like learning how to code for dummies on tape. I love science fiction and coding, but I fell asleep halfway through the book. Too many names and the omnipotent power of the main character made even this story seem far fetched.

Very enjoyable

An interesting premise and for the majority of the book it engages, one or two parts that feel like fillers but over all well worth a listen
