Frustratingly, the description of this I read ended at “the program.” and the series title escaped me. So I didn’t anticipate the direction of the work very well, expecting more of the AI, programming and whatnot.

Still, it was OK for what it was but the ending was rather abrupt and if I’d known how much of the rest of the story was to come I might have waited until I had more to read.
