Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The human/AI hybrid is very, very well done. The description of how they try to fool the Consentience into misclassifying something as plant or animal is very reasonable.

Con: The ending is a bit of a downer, though. Also, it's hard to believe that the Consentience would simply give up.
