Interesting. I didn't so much care for the machine psychologist through most of the book (nor the "classified ads" and "lecture transcripts" and so on peppered throughout the narrative), but it served an effective function. And I must say I was surprised by the ending. Even though you find out fairly early some of the principle bits of what happened, the how of it all caught me off guard. I was quite pleased by that.
