5.0 out of 5 stars A riveting novel, and an excellent insight into the future, 25 Aug 2008
This review is from: Black Man (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
The future painted by Morgan in Black Man is not so much a 'possible' future, as it is a 'very likely' one: this is what made this novel a riveting read, one of those hard-to-put-down books, you just MUST see where it leads to.

The plot is very finely twisted, the dialogues are very credible and the characters are most definitely "real" - with flaws and positives and defects: no black and white here, but a very realistic, credible series of shades of gray.

But the real strenght of Morgan's novel is this sense that the future he depicts is where our "twisted," feminised, politicised world is headfast hurling towards, with no one really bothering to care about...

A really strong recommended read, and a bet, if you are a male reader, that you'll come out wishing you were a 'thirteen' :-)
