This was the first Dennis E. Taylor book I have encountered. It was a lot of fun. I will pretty much listen to anything that Ray Porter narrates so I was excited to see he had narrated another sci-fi – and I was not disappointed.
Down on his luck, Ivan scores a job on a mining ship, searching for metals that will make them all rich so he is able to provide for his family. While on an asteroid, Ivan touches something and all hell breaks loose. The substance clings to his suit and makes its way into it. It starts to change him… All of a sudden Ivan is not quite Ivan anymore. And all of a sudden he has to save the human race!
This was a really fun ride! I thought it might be a bit slow at first, despite Ray’s narration, but man, it quickly got into it and I found I couldn’t stop listening!
It had a really great message embedded between all the drama, action and adventure. What do we have to do as a species to get our act together!?? I really enjoy this kind of sci-fi. A lot of fun, but also makes you think and opens up your mind.
I loved the characters, loved the action, and I am looking forward to giving more Dennis E. Taylor books a go!
I do wish there was a little bit more romance. There was a little bit, but it didn’t quite hit the spot for me, even though I realise that it wasn’t what the book was about, and I imagine some would argue that it was just the right amount as to not detract from the story… But I enjoy a bit more romance in a book.
Would I recommend The Singularity Trap?
Absolutely! It was a really great ride, with twists and turns. It was intelligent and a lot of darn fun! And if I ever write a sci-fi adventure, I hope that I can get Ray Porter to narrate it! Brilliant!

However I am very glad that I persevered, because this is a really clever story in and of its own right and I enjoyed it a lot.
There is clearly a link to the Bob universe stories which you will see if you have read them, and if you have not what are you waiting for?
This is really good relatively hard science-fiction with some good storytelling to boot, highly recommended.
It was easy to ignore these plot holes as the novel stands up well regardless. Let’s just say that Ralph is clearly an AI
The answer is a qualified yes. This story began a little quietly, but then gathered pace and became both engaging and satisfying. I really enjoyed the twist at the end!
