A great SF novel,
This review is from: Mockingbird (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
The book is about a not so future USA where after the dropping of the A bomb people find themselves becoming irrelevant and gradually extinct. Robots are the only things keeping society functioning, as people have been unable to rebuild a functioning society. They exist in a drugged state, dependent of hand outs.
There are three characters, two of them human and an android (who actually has power over the two humans).
This book is a well deserved 'SF masterwork' - for me it is literature, very well written. The characters, even that of the androids are well written and believable - you are really drawn into the future world created by the author.
One of the 'must reads' of the SF masterworks series - read it.
