The Android’s Dream – John Scalzi

The Android’s Dream is a science fiction novel involving the many layers of bureaucracy in the government of earth manoeuvring around each other to meet their own aims, whilst (genearlly) trying to prevent an alien race from conquering Earth.

With the bureaucracy and legal frameworks, this is a brilliant story about world conquering, space travel and genetic engineering. The moral dilemmas are handled well, with smart solutions found, and the introduction of AI helping to enable a realistic “all knowing” character.
