Third of three, I am glad I read them in order. Lots of issues raised, which made this more fun than 2 stars, but occasional awkward dialogue and off-putting mix of intelligence and lack thereof. Why does Webmind's divided self's smaller part become not just amoral but immoral? The earlier development showed Webmind as an observer, learning to try to optimize human happiness, why would the division result in a part that without "learning" goes the other way? And why wouldn't an autonomous and vastly intelligent AI be able to figure out how to protect itself?
As others noted, SF lite, sort of SF young adult.
