An interesting idea; not very gripping,
This review is from: Remake (Paperback)
This was my second Connie Willis, after reading her marvellous, 'To say nothing of the dog'. It offers an interesting view of the Hollywood of the future, satirising the ubiquitous use of computer graphics and the growing trend to concentrate on remakes and sequels. Predictably perhaps, a character is introduced who is like a breath of fresh air in the stifling atmosphere of Hollywood parties with their drugs, deals and sordid liaisons.
Somehow though, I couldn't find myself sympathising with the narrator, and didn't in the end care very much about the fate of the 'heroine', if that's an appropriate term. Avid Connie Willis fans will enjoy this, but I can only give it a guarded recommendation.
