The world is being run, in the background, by an ancient supercomputer. Only problem is, it appears to have gone insane and is now splitting part into separate entries. So the crew must figure out a way home, solve the domestic squabbles their presence has created AND fight a super computer that wants to kill every human on the planet.
I think I’ve had enough of Mike Moscoe/Shepherd. There has never been 1 big thing that has annoyed me, but just a series of little pinpricks and this book pushed me over the edge.
False guilt, internal melodrama, people acting like idiots for apparent reason, are among some of the reasons I won’t continuing with this author. Another big one is characters who deny they are good at something so that others are forced to say so. I HATE it when people fish for compliments or pretend to be modest.
Au revoir Mike. You always rubbed me the wrong way and now I don’t have to deal with it any more. Ahhh, it feels good.
