Natural Intelligence Produces AI+,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Complete Roderick (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
There is nobody smarter or funnier than Sladek and this, with Bayley's Soul of the Robot, remains the finest of treatments of artificial intelligence questioning its own identity and the mores of the society around it. It has a real feel of Smollett in its sardonic relish for human folly. It is a genuine classic, in anyone's terms, and I am so grateful it's back in print so that I can recommend it to EVERYONE. You, too, will fall in love with John Sladek's superior humour.
