Eager for more

Another excellent novel well read by a talented narrator, only a full cast has any hope of bettering it. I can't possibly wait for next month's credit, the situation in the twin frames continues to build with equal parts anticipation and concern.

A little twisty

This tone seemed a little desperate at time...to keep the frames & generations going but ended up enjoyable in the long run.

Robot and Human

Who would have thought, only a great story teller, who has a wonderful mind for twists, either robot or human. Wonderful.

Terrible story failed attempt at a sci fi romance

Doesnt really move the story anywhere. Lots of sex that all to often comes off as more naseating then anything else
