Ventus

by Karl Schroeder

An excellent novel, with a complex storyline, well-crafted characters and highly imaginative settings and technological artifacts abounding.

In one way or other, the lead characters, all on journeys of self-discovery or self-recovery, are metaphors for the struggles taking place on the planet, Ventus. This book is a fascinating exploration of the question of the meaning of being as it applies to intelligent machines and persons alike.
