Dennis E. Taylor â 7 Read Read & Download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB â Dennis E. Taylor Summary The Singularity Trap After scrimping and saving for two years Ivan Pritchard lands a berth with the mining ship Mad Astra His one share buys him six months of searching the asteroid belt for that elusive cache of metals that could make the entire crew wealthy and allow Ivan to pull his family out of the depths of povertyWhile investigating a promising asteroid Ivan triggers. I read this purely because I liked the author s other books so much However I was actually shocked to feel so different about this one compared to the Bobiverse seriesWe follow Ivan the MC who is a miner in financial trouble Humanity has managed to not stop global warming On the contrary many coastal places such as Florida are gone due to melted ice caps More than ever if you re not born into a rich family you are at a serious disadvantage death definitely being an option So he buys a share on a mining spaceship hoping for the same things all explorers during the Gold Rush hoped for During one trip after finally striking gold so to speak he gets too recklesscurious and gets suirted by alien technology for his trouble It s no spoiler that they slowly but surely convert his body but into what And whyAs it was the book had less humour than the Bobiverse but that worked well enough here Instead we got body horror and the exploration of concepts such as the game theory prisoner s dilemma big uestions regarding the future of humanity ecological as well as social and technological outthinking the enemy in order to save our entire species creative solutions when you re outnumbered and outgunned The seuence asking the reader what is self and is there any self left when all the physical parts have been replaced was a good one An oldie but goodieBut then there were the problems I would have liked body horror everyone was so annoyingly calm and Ivan as well as the nanites got along just fine and charcterization not just the constant I m poor I have to make money no matter how no not like that nonsense or the phrase Ivan wished he could cry We get it we don t need constant repetition Other stuff was just not coherent Such as there being no real political military structure which was unrealistic even when considering that this was a story of first encounter Even within one nation there was too much chaos On a smaller level one of the miners first strongly protected Ivan and then completely abandoned him once the uarantine was lifted The wife wasn t even trying to get her husband back even before view spoilershe thought Ivan had been nuked or before her wealth was threatened of which she knew nothing hide spoiler
