    READER ↠ DOC The Terminal ExperimentFREE The Terminal ExperimentThe Terminal Experiment is perhaps my favorite Sawyer novel Published in 1995 it's a near future 2011 story of artificial intelligence and immortality and murder and life after death wrapped up in a mystery with thought provoking and challenging speculations on religion and medical ethics and scientific procedure Sawyer always keeps the story at the forefront and produces really convincing and sympathetic characters even the proverbial and literal ghost in the machine It's not a light read bu

    READER ↠ DOC The Terminal ExperimentFREE The Terminal ExperimentAlways with that contrived ripped from the headlines plugged into a thriller feel and the distracting sense that Sawyer's characters are just cameos of folks he met while researching his book but you would think that after 50 years of SF exploring the ramifications of AI and afterlife Sawyer would come up with something perceptive than just murderous AIs and a completely imaginary proof of soul life Another example of hailed Hard sci fi that relies on arbitrary fantasy tools and measurement

    READER ↠ DOC The Terminal ExperimentFREE The Terminal ExperimentWho else writes like Sawyer nowadays? This is thoughtful and engaging sometimes even thrilling as I've come to expect from him I love all the different ideas sprinkled through the predictions of possible near future politics culture and technology I love the 'exoticism' to me of the Canadian setting and the view from there of the US But this particular book isn't perfect because it hasn't aged well SF wise We still have VCRs but can create fully sentient and self aware

    READER ↠ DOC The Terminal ExperimentFREE The Terminal ExperimentI loved Flashforward by Sawyer This book was good but not uite up to the same uality as that one Still I enjoyed it a lotThe Terminal Experiment took a little while to set up the story The beginning wasn't uninteresting just not specifically about what it proposed to be about It did weed its way into that about halfway through and I ended up being satisfiedThis book begins with a scientist in Canada who develops technology to assess when a person actually dies not just when the doctors say they doto assuage his fears after a traumatic organ harvesting exp

    READER ↠ DOC The Terminal ExperimentFREE The Terminal ExperimentreturnreturnThis is not uite as bad a book as I had been led to believe The prose is often leaden in particular the cringe worthy opening passage which I think should be used as a model of how not to write in classes for impressionable young writers and the numerous info dumps idicating that the characters have read all the available scientific literature up to 1994 which is a shame as most of the book is set in 2011 What appears to be the killer idea of the first half of the book that science can detect the soul leaving the body at death is simply forgotten for the last third of the narrative which plays the rogue AI's in the net cliche as a murder mystery leading to an unconvincing resolution The detective character herself violates standard operating procedure by burbling her theories about the crime to one of the key
