Arachne 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
psybre on LibraryThing 8 months ago
Heavy with jargon and the development of a complex JIT legal system, it was a bit hard to get through the first third of the book, but I found the character development of the artificial intelligences interesting and the narrative begun to flow well as the story progressed. A real cyber-romp exploring consciousness and legal ethics. Painful at times to read about a devolved San Francisco of the future where all but the elite can escape or ignore a unruly city that is chaotic and dangerous to flesh-and-blood and machines alike.
