This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
An interesting story. First person narrative of an alien AI probe sent to Earth to collect samples and report to Mother, a vessel that brought it to orbit. I like that it is not set in America as many books nowadays are. Though I find it difficult to believe that an alien sentient being could bring peace to earth, it is a nice viewpoint. The beginning of the book was strong and intriguing, but the end fell a little flat.
Thank you LibraryThing early reviewers and NewCon Press for a copy of this book. ( )

What would an alien artificial intelligence make of humanity? This is the question asked by this thought provoking novel. The nameless robot probe is dropped onto the surface of the earth on a survey mission. Its makers have no idea that the planet is inhabited by intelligent beings. The probe has no memories of a previous existence, it just has (very sophisticated) programming enabling it to adapt to conditions on the ground.

This probe makes friends with some of the people it encounters, and learns more about people and about itself than it ever supposed it would.

[Disclaimer: I got this book via LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program] Newcon Press usually delivers nice books; therefore I am happy to review them. This time, however, "nice" is not enough to say how much I appreciated this work by Simon Morden. Talking about first contact from an alien point of view is of course not a new topos; doing this from the point of view of a probe lets Morden look at things in a new way, since its logic is quite different from what an intelligent species would gather. Indeed, sometimes I guessed correctly what it referred; but other times I had to correct my original guess, because I made ad hoc assumptions, like in the case of Pedro. The second half of the book, where the probe becomes a sort of deus ex machina, is probably weaker: Morden puts his own ideas, which may be appreciated but come a bit of a clash with respect to the alien logic. But I heartily recommend the reading! ( )

Definitely a different read from my usual choices. The story is told in the first-person, or rather the first-robot and as the style takes some getting used to and may not be everybody’s preference, I would recommend that potential buyers first download a sample. ( )

This is one of the most fantastic books I have read this year.
The story is told from the point of view of an extraterrestrial probe. That makes the book difficult to read, especially in the beginning. But you will be rewarded.
The probe does not know the things we humans know and it looks at things differently. So, in the beginning, every time the probes describes something, you have to think hard what it means.
Later on, when the probe starts learning the language, the reading gets easier.
I like the probe very much, the way it thinks and the consideration it shows.
Initially the probe lacks moral and social graces; sometimes it made me stop in horror.
I like the way the probe described the way people tried to dominate each other.
I like the view of the probe on the women and I like the women in the book very, very much. They are tough women.
Though I was afraid the book would have a terrible ending, the end is acceptable enough. ( )
