Summary
Through a series of diary entries, letters, and transcripts, five characters who are separated by time and place (among them a young Puritan named Mary, mathematician Alan Turing, and a computer science professor whose marriage is crumbling) share stories and experiences that ask what it means to be human.
Critique
An inventive and unusual novel that is more about human nature than about artificial intelligence.
