review 1: Interesting book that delves into religious fundamentalism from a different angle. There were some really interesting characters in this book, a few that I could really relate to. One of the highlights of the book for me was when one of the characters does an about turn. At times the book was a bit tedious to read with lots of jargon and acronyms, many if which were made up by the author. All in all it was an interesting book but not always entertaining.
review 2: Oh, Mr. Macleod. This is a detective novel, and the detective part is perfectly fine. But it’s set in a world in which all religions have been ruthlessly, violently, and for the most part successfully repressed. Which is both the core of the novel and somehow not sufficiently appalling as rendered.
... moreI also question whether any of the plot points that rely on theological questions from Scottish history (and there are a ton of these) make any damn sense at all to someone unfamiliar with that history. Maybe that’s part of the point, I’m not sure. less
Reviews (see all)
Near future novel that pits religious belief vs the world. Robots get religion and turn terrorist
I liked this book... religion and robots, great topics... and I have to say I like how it ended.
An entertaining mix of PBS murder mystery and robots with a side of religion & philosophy.
Sentient robots and religion make for some interesting and thought provoking reading.
