Irgendwie geht mir Clary auf den Geist mit ihrem Getue ala „ich muss tapfer sein“ und dann wiederum denke ich mir nur so „komm, nimm das jetzt nicht zu ernst“. Auch mal irgendwie schön so beim lesen zu denken. Einfach nur lesen, um der Unterhaltung wegen und nicht alles so ernst nehmen zu müssen. Hab mich da wohl immer selbst zu sehr unter Druck gesetzt.Es gibt einfach nicht DAS perfekte Buch. Einerseits ist es schön, dass ich ENDLICH diese Einsicht erhalten habe, andererseits ist es sehr schade, dass ich das erst nach 2 Jahren Lesepause bekam.
From the blurb:
"From the New York Times bestselling author of Robopocalypse comes a fascinating and fantastic collection that explores complex emotional and intellectual landscapes at the intersection of artificial intelligence and human life. A VINTAGE BOOKS ORIGINAL.
In "All Kinds of Proof," a down-and-out drunk makes the unlikeliest of friends when he is hired to train a mail-carrying robot; in "Blood Memory," a mother confronts the dangerous reality that her daughter will never assimilate in this world after she was the first child born through a teleportation device; in "The Blue Afternoon That Lasted Forever," a physicist rushes home to be with his daughter after he hears reports of an atmospheric anomaly which he knows to be a sign of the end of the earth; in "Miss Gloria," a robot comes back to life in many different forms in a quest to save a young girl. Guardian Angels and Other Monsters displays the depth and breadth of Daniel H. Wilson's vision and examines how artificial intelligence both saves and destroys humanity. "
This is a compilation of 14 short science-fiction stories. I found this collection to make for enjoyable reading, though some stories I enjoyed more than others. This collection deals mostly with the human side, rather than the science side, of whatever subject the author was writing about at the time. Some stories were thought provoking, others rather creepy. The writing was beautiful.
NOTE: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion of the book.
