Cross-posting from the finished thread:

Speak, Louisa Hall

An absorbing look at artificial intelligence, not in any technical sense, but rather its implications for human interaction and conversation. Much of the text is set in the past, as it merges the journal of a seventeenth century pilgrim with the stories of Alan Turing, an estranged couple involved with the development of a chatbot in the sixties and eighties and then into a dystopian future where AI 'baby-bots' have been outlawed. It's very moving at times and well-crafted.
