Fun mystery where a sentient computer is the detective (with help of course). ( )

It has been a while since I read the Turing Hopper books, but the are all wonderful. ( )

What a fun read! I started this months ago and had to give up the book; so glad that I found another copy to finish the story.

Turing is pretty lovable for a bunch of hardware, and her two human sidekicks were quietly wonderful.

The only very minor downside is that much (maybe half?) of the book is written in italics. That's not a terribly bad thing, but it seems like "Turing Speak" could have been indicated in some other way. ( )

I think there for I am! This is what a AI is thinking and feeling when her programer goes missing. She decides that it is her job to to save him. With a little help from her friends she sets out on a quest that leads to some extraordinary detective work and a weird adventure. Well this book started out very interesting and got better and better until the end where it fell flat on it's face. It falls under the category of well I am done writing now wrap it up. Leaving several plot points hanging. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425189457, Mass Market Paperback)

Turing Hopper is an Artificial Intelligence Personality, a mainframe computer with a mind like Miss Marple. And when her creator, Zack, begins missing work, the sentient Turing senses foul play...

(see all 2 descriptions)

"Normally a workaholic techie, Zack has missed work for several days. So his friend, Turing, does the only neighborly thing and checks to see if Zack has logged in from home. No luck. Then she skims the databases of local banks to find his personal identification number. Nothing. Next she searches police and hospital records throughout the state. No Zack." "Turing is no crazed stalker: she is an artificial intelligence personality of Zack's creation. But, unlike other AIPs, Turing is sentient - and she senses foul play. Fortunately, when Zack created her, he downloaded into Turing every murder mystery in his library, so Turing would think like a detective. She does find some clues to Zack's disappearance, but the enemies may well lie in the real world - where Turing has no ability to move."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
