I have rarely come this close to DNF’ing (did not finish) a book as I did within the first three chapters. There was little to entice me to slog through the first of the golem chapters, but a review said that things pick up after the first fifty pages, so I chugged through.
I am eternally glad that I did, because before the first half of the book was even passed, I had an entirely different view of human-robot interactions. I have taken a handful of notes on my own novel thanks to the writings within, and I know that, save the worst ending in history, this book will become an invaluable tool as I progress into the note-taking stage of my novel-writing.
I ended up reading the second half of this novel in one day. I thoroughly enjoyed Piercy’s storytelling. I loved Yod’s character. I especially loved the dynamic relationship between Yod and Shira.
Four dead assassins, out of five.
As of April 27th, I am reading Marge Piercy’s novel: He, She and It.
