    Mockingbird eBook ´ ñ PDF american history.co mockingbird ebok, Mockingbird PDF/EPUBI could tell with in the first few paragraphs of this book I was really going to like it The story starts with Robert Spofforth a very special robot in fact a Make Nine robot whistling as he walks down the street Now to me whistling is a very distinctive human trait I know some birds can be taught to whistle and I'm sure someone has spent numerous hours of their life teaching their dog to whistle but generally I think humans are the only entity on the planet bad ass enough to actually whistle as we walk through the woods or across the plains announcing our presence to everything here I am Alright so Tevis got my attention right away I put the book on my stack of reading now books and promptly got caught up in a monster of a

    Mockingbird eBook ´ ñ PDF american history.co mockingbird ebok, Mockingbird PDF/EPUBI chose not to read this based on an allegorical bent and instead chose to enjoy the oh so clear voice of the Robot Who Would End Humanity Of course he'd do so only because it seems to be the only way to circumvent his programming to live to serve humanity but them's the breaks right humans?Lol no this isn't a biting satire of us like the inestimable Roderick but it does have

    Mockingbird eBook ´ ñ PDF american history.co mockingbird ebok, Mockingbird PDF/EPUBMy favorite speculative fiction of all time is Michael Cunningham's Specimen Days which I read back in 2012 while the very first science fiction I read was Aldous Huxley's Brave New World I read these books only a few months apart and I was forever changed because of them and this change has definitely got me interested to venture on acuiring and experiencing of what the science fiction genre has to offer as much as I could Eleven sci fi books later I remained insatiable so after finishing this one The very first thing that struck me while in the middle of consuming this novel by Walter Tevis is that it was unmistakably a majestic blend of both the dystopic landscapes featured in Huxley's book and written in the same nostalgic manner of aching melancholic sensibility and spiritual contemplation very much alive in Cunningham's work With that I couldn't help but find m

    Mockingbird eBook ´ ñ PDF american history.co mockingbird ebok, Mockingbird PDF/EPUBUnfortunately Ends Up Just Being AverageThis is the first time that for the first 80 pages of a book I couldn't put it down and then for the rest of the book it ends up being below average At first it was so interesting so bizarre I was fascinated and entranced by this dystopia world and thought I had found another great author But then it seems the author just ran out of steam I actually thought to myself that Tevis is sabotaging his work on purpose The characters started to become boring there were pointless scenes grammatical errors and he even named one of his main characters incorrectly The message of the book is also a bit too academic and lacks subtlety Inwardness privacy self fulfilment drugs pleasure technology bad Reading knowledge friends family good I couldn't understand what Spofforth was about though If the message of the book is that reading and knowledge and intellectual curiosity is a good thing this definitely wasn't the case for Spofforth who is knowled

    Mockingbird eBook ´ ñ PDF american history.co mockingbird ebok, Mockingbird PDF/EPUBI started Mockingbird because it was on my TBR from 2010 and somehow thought it was a detective novel of sorts Wrong It starts with a robot in a robot dominant landscape who is unable to end his life and brings in a human who has taught himself to read something humans no longer do Then he meets a woman who isn't on the mind altering drugs Very readable and engaging

    Mockingbird eBook ´ ñ PDF american history.co mockingbird ebok, Mockingbird PDF/EPUBThere are aspects of this book that terrify me At least Skynet tried to kill us humans in one fell swoop This was something different Slow and insidious Our doing really in the end There were some bits about past technology that didn't uite hold up but all in all it isn't to terribly off the mark At least in my mind I have to say at one point I became very anxious I needed some Sophor to get me through those chapters And I found myself loathing a character A few chapters later I felt bad for that same character For me this was a glimpse into a future I do not want to
