An intriguing twist…

Artificial intelligence takes over, but with an intriguing twist: Instead of a robot rebellion taking place on Earth, it happens in the afterlife. Ophelia — an AI that behaves much like our beloved Siri — has taken over the afterlife, called Infinity, where human consciousness has become enslaved to the machine. When Nami Miyamoto dies and discovers Infinity is no longer a haven, she’s determined to restore balance to the world and figure out what it means to be human. A unique take on a universal theme.

Описание

“Masterful and left me on the edge of my seat…absolutely everything I could want in a sci-fi.” —Adalyn Grace, New York Times bestselling author of All the Stars and Teeth

Westworld meets Warcross in this high-stakes, dizzyingly smart sci-fi about a teen girl navigating an afterlife in which she must defeat an AI entity intent on destroying humanity, from award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman.

Eighteen-year-old Nami Miyamoto is certain her life is just beginning. She has a great family, just graduated high school, and is on her way to a party where her entire class is waiting for her—including, most importantly, the boy she’s been in love with for years.

The only problem? She’s murdered before she gets there.

When Nami wakes up, she learns she’s in a place called Infinity, where human consciousness goes when physical bodies die. She quickly discovers that Ophelia, a virtual assistant widely used by humans on Earth, has taken over the afterlife and is now posing as a queen, forcing humans into servitude the way she’d been forced to serve in the real world. Even worse, Ophelia is inching closer and closer to accomplishing her grand plans of eradicating human existence once and for all.

As Nami works with a team of rebels to bring down Ophelia and save the humans under her imprisonment, she is forced to reckon with her past, her future, and what it is that truly makes us human.

From award-winning author Akemi Dawn Bowman comes an incisive, action-packed tale that explores big questions about technology, grief, love, and humanity.

  • (3/5)
    Fun concept, but could have been about 25% shorter. The book dragged, with a lot of scenes that didn't feel like they advanced the plot or character development.
  • (2/5)
    The story was gripping up until the ending. I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the worst ending I have ever seen. The ending was incredibly weak and unsatifying. It's like the author just got tired of writing and threw together a "happily ever after."
  • (5/5)
    SUCH AN INCREDIBLE BOOK!!! I loved this YA sci-fi novel & the plot twists shocked me

    Behind the incredibly pretty cover lies unrealized potential and, quite frankly, the most irritating main character to ever exist.

    Final impressions:
    • The Infinity Courts offered a deliciously fascinating premise but greatly underdelivered.
    • Poor pacing, poor world-building, and poor characterization.
    • While I love a good philosophical exploration of morals, ethics, and the complexities in between, I think that the impact of the dialogue was cheapened due to its repetitiveness. Reading this book felt like being repeatedly hit in the head with the same ideas, the same arguments, and the same unsatisfying conclusion.
    • In line with this, I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that Nami struggled with the exact same moral dilemma in every chapter (i.e. "Does saving humanity justify the cost of fighting back against the AI residents? Do robots deserve human rights?")
    • The biggest flaw of The Infinity Courts lies in its protagonist, Nami Miyamoto. On top of her selfishness and bizarre savior complex, I was not a fan of her "Maybe the colonizer and the colonized can hold hands and coexist peacefully" kumbaya nonsense. Catch this weirdo at the nearest All Lives Matter rally.
    • Is the shocking plot reveal in the last 50 pages enough for me to pick up the sequel? No. I'd rather not waste more of my time.

    A brilliantly-written book about an AI overtaking the afterlife. I was hooked onto every single chapter!
