Average. Incredibly underwhelming end to the Cold Equations trilogy. Much like the Breen storyline from the prior books, the Data story seemed over thought. Spoiler: The Body Electric Why didn't Data simply build a new positronic brain to house Lal's memory? I did think Wesley was well-written in the book but found The Machine dull and sleep inducing. Data really seemed out of character. It enforces my feelings that this is Data 2.0 vs. a continuation of the original character. I guess the housing makes all the difference in how a computer program runs? At the end of the day, I really had trouble staying interested in this book. Which I don't think I've ever said about a David Mack book before.
