OK, "HAL" was good, this is better. From amazon.com:
"Cognitive neurologist and well-known writer team up to produce a machine that can pass a comprehensive exam in English literature, with predictably unpredictable results. Like The Gold Bug Variations, this is another of Powers' wild, unforgettable novels encompassing science, philosophy, and the frailty of mankind."
After reading the book, I paid RETAIL for the audio version. (Don't tell Woody Allen, - "The biggest sin in my family was paying retail.") It sounds like sci-fi, but its not. Speculative, yes. My wife liked the relationship stuff (the part I sort of skimmed ...)
