I won't read this review because that book is in my read pile. I might catch up after I get too it (although I project that it will be some weeks).

Finally read the book. In general, not bad. One slight quibble with the review, the revived clone of the captain was not in violation of the "Codicils", the previous one was. The latest clone always has the rights to the "person" and any previous "shells" should be disposed of immediately. Even if they object. That point was brought up several times.

You wrote, "I think I remember someone claiming that an author could still
attain suspension of disbelief (SOD) as long as they postulated only one or
two implausibilities. As long as everything else seemed rational."

I assume this is humor? Herbert George Wells wrote to that effect.
