5.0 out of 5 stars Future Award Winner, 29 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Machine (Kindle Edition)
I read Jennifer Pellands Unwelcome Bodies last year and thought it wa the best collection of short stories I had read in a long time. Machine is even better. It isn't just great science fiction it i great fiction full-stop.

It has love and what happens when love dies. How do you live with that pain. What does it mean to be human and what do you do when you can no longer cope with being human.

Celia is a bioandroid, a woman whose mind, loves and emotions are transferred to an artificial body. This is where things start to go wrong for her. How does she manage this change.

It is unsettling, thought-provoking, intelligent and all together the best book I have read so far this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars American Gods fantasies House of Games, 5 July 2001
This review is from: American Gods (Hardcover)
Neil Gaiman's American Gods has grifters, conmen, gods old and new, what more could you ask for.
Wednesday a new world version of an old friend from Neil Gaiman's Sandman is a great character, his employee (and maybe more) Shadow seems like something of a cipher for much of the book but comes into his own in the last section.
Anyone familar with Sandman will recognise a lot of the themes in this book. As always Neil Gaiman finds a fresh take on old characters, and in doing so produces something completely fresh. A lot of the reviews quoted on the cover tell us that this is an important book, I'm not sure about that, but I do know its the best book I've read this year.
Buy this book, read it and recommend it to your friends.
