Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This novel explores ideas of just what kind of being would an AI, a truly sentient AI would be.
Set in a near future only slightly more advanced than our own current time, City of Angels will take you for a ride as the reader follows various human characters as well as AI on their journeys of self discovery and acceptance.

Fear can make you do terrible things. Belief can drive you to the same.

You will love the central characters, and find yourself still reading this into the early hours of the next day as you read that "just a little more!"

A true page turner!

I new where I was and what was going on at all the chapter beginnings. I liked the story line. A book that lets right triumph!
the story gripped me on an emotional level as well as intellectually. But then I always like stories about computer AIs

This is a great novel about an emergent Artificial Intelligence which develops out of the Los Angeles traffic control system (hence it identifies itself with the city of LA), and how various people and world powers react to the existence of a powerful AI.

I read this, and could not put it down, it was really good, write more, please, but the ending was a bit naff.
There has to be some director who could turn this into a good film, and if they do follow the book but change the ending.
