My first venture into Peter Watt’s novels and what a start. Complex universe engineering, life times spanning aeons and an intelligent agent to rival HAL. I’d like to know more about this story, what happened in the past and what is to come.
This book was an interesting take on the far, far future and human lifetimes extended over galactic time, the caveat being that the humans live in shifts and may only live for one day every thousand years. How do you organise a revolution when your co-conspirators are living on a completely different time scale to you?
