Rezension bezieht sich auf: A.I. Apocalypse (Singularity Series Book 2) (English Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I really liked the series. After finishing Avogadro Corp, I definetly wanted to read the other two books.
"Avogadro Corp" - the first book in the series is a plausible near-future scenario, describing the emergence of the first human-level (and later beyond) AI and humanities reaction to it.
"A.I. Apocalypse" is set a little further in the future and continues the story. It tells us about a new and different kind of AI emerging from a different source and how it (very rapidly) evolves and interacts with humanity and the AI from the first book. There is also intense and breathtaking action.
"The Last Firewall" is set further in the future still, although two characters from the first book give continuity throughout the series. The third part develops ideas further: How will humanity and AIs develop and coexist? There are some battles in cyberspace, which introduce interesting ideas about fighting in cyberspace.
Overall, I liked the ideas - the reason why I read SF, and I also liked the writing. The action-scene in A.I. Apocalypse was fascinating to me and really justifies using the title "A.I. Apocalypse", which I found a little silly aside from that. I think, these books are not so much about the relationships between people though. I didn't expect that and didn't miss it.
There is only one thing I didn't like: I read the kindle versions and there were some missing words and other errors here and there. That is irritating to me and feels sloppy.
If you ignore that: Great books! I'm happy I read them.
