#BookReview: Singularity Part 1: The Dale Chronicles by Chuck Stewart

Synopsis: How do A.I. and robots become conscious? That question is explored in the Singularity trilogy. Dale, a narcissistic gay man on the verge of becoming a partner at his financial planning company in the year 2050, sees other electric cars self-driving, speeding, cutting in line at the charging station, and other law violations. He wants the same privilege and seeks out illegal software that enables these features on his new, very expensive electric car. A mysterious benefactor upgrades the car’s computers, surprisingly allowing the car to be conscious and sentient. Many more of his household computers and robots join the network with surprising results. But they need to learn what it means to be conscious. Dale, and his self-centered behaviors, teach the robots survival skills. At the same time, a new powerful e-bomb has been released onto the planet that destroys all electronics in a small designated area. It is a cheap, renewal weapon for which there is no defense. The world faces being thrown back into the stone age. Can Dale help? Will the robots help? How do robots become conscious? What does this all mean?

The author, Chuck Stewart, believes science fiction should be based on good science. All the technological innovations discussed in the book are based on real science projected a few decades into the future. The book is non-apologetic about language, sex, and action. This is written for adults ready to consume an action-packed science fiction with explicit gay male sex, violence, and strong language.


Rating: 4 Stars    
My Review: This one kind of put me off to start with.  When I read the description I was kind of really wondering what I was going into.  But I knew that Jess wouldn't steer me wrong when it comes to things she sends me for the site.  So I dived in and was happily surprised. I will say that I think that this cover screams more childish vs. what you really get in this book.  This was an LGBT spicy blend of AI and I Robot and I was all here for that.  So if you are like most don't pay any attention to the cover.  Just pick up the book and read it.  For most of the pages I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen and this one did not disappoint.
