Limit of Vision by Linda Nagata
Limit of Vision characterizes the speculative nature of science fiction: it not only shows readers an interesting new world, but it asks "what if..." In this case, the question is: what if artificial intelligence ceases to be artificial? Virgil, Ela, and a cult of Vietnamese youngsters called Roi Nuoc all ask this question, and the answer they come up with is at odds with the rest of the scientific community and the powers that be. Stimulating developments ensue.
While I can't say I liked this book as much as Memory, I found it just as easy to read and finish. It wasn't always riveting, especially in the second half, but the characters and the plight of the LOVs kept me at it until I closed the book with satisfaction. I'm going to contine reading Linda Nagata.
