An original take on the pulp sci-fi tale. I really enjoyed it's quirks and little absurdities. The erotisism that I expected was all machine based(kind of) but was done in such a way that it simply merged quite nicely into the story, but none of it caused even the slightest increase of pulse or anything else. I'm not complaining, just saying. It was both original and amusing and definitely in-keeping with the story and characters. Apparently there's a second novel in this series due next year. I'll certainly be looking out for it. If you want some pulpy type fun with that little something extra then try this one.

I enjoy a good space opera every now and then, but more importantly, I enjoy Mr. Stross's space operas very very much. Sometimes, his novels remind me of the best genre virtuosity. It is an ongoing commentary on all the greats, like Asimov and Heinlein, and it tickled my funny bone to revisit the three laws.

I'll be honest, though. While the story was fun in a light but slightly twisted way, I still got a lot more enjoyment out of the ideas. It reminded me why I preferred sci-fi over almost all types of literature in the first place!

The best of the light humor of the novel was reserved almost entirely for the end, unfortunately. I probably would have enjoyed droll much more had it been established much earlier. Otherwise, I had a good time reading about a future where humanity died out because it couldn't be bothered to screw members of its own species to save its life. ( )

I started out thinking that the premise seemed interesting, but there were several jarring parts and the second half was so impossible to follow that I'm still not exactly sure what was going on or why the characters were doing half of what they did. I can't say exactly what it was that convinced me to persevere to the end, but whatever it was must have been good, because it kept me from giving this a single-star rating. ( )

Good read set in a dystopia when humanity has been replaced by human acting robots and AI type super human machines, our solar system has been developed and there are space elevators on the smaller planet and moons. The robots are obsessive about their lost humans as they are psychological enslave to be slave to humans. We follow the story of Freya a sex robot who has never seen a human... ( )

Somewhere, Heinlein is proudly smiling.

This is a fabulous book, a witty and deep critique of the field's shibboleths, and well worth the price of admission.
