Love is made of more than mere flesh and blood....Tanith Lee is one of the most thought-provoking and imaginative authors of our time. In this unforgettably poignant novel, Lee has created a classic tale--a beautiful, tragic, erotic, and ultimately triumphant love story of the future.For sixteen-year-old Jane, life is a mystery she despairs of ever mastering. She and her friends are the idle, pampered children of the privileged class, living in luxury on an Earth remade by natural disaster. Until Jane's life is changed forever by a chance encounter with a robot minstrel with auburn hair and silver skin, whose songs ignite in her a desperate and inexplicable passion.Jane is certain that Silver is more than just a machine built to please. And she will give up everything to prove it. So she escapes into the city's violent, decaying slums to embrace a love bordering on madness. Or is it something more? Has Jane glimpsed in Silver something no one else has dared to see--not even the robot or his creators? A love so perfect it must be destroyed, for no human could ever compete?

5.0 Review - Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee
So, this is my first Tanith Lee, and it was suggested as a robot book when I was asking for them. And I really, really loved this one. It's about so much more than robots, or even robotic love - although, damn, there is a lot of human/robot lovin' going on in here. No, there's so much detailed...

5.0 The Silver Metal Lover
I remember loving this as a teen.. I still love this book--a lot of books I loved back as a young reader don't hold up but this did on reread. And despite being 30 years old, it doesn't feel dated--itself unusual for a work of science fiction. I love Tanith Lee's style, which manages to feel sensu...

If I have even a sip of wine (or MORE, which is very possible and happens with some frequency), it's like a muscle is relaxed in my tear ducts and I find myself tearing up at just about everything.
