Read Dead Girls

Avera and mad Ignatz Zwakh know what power is really behind the microbiotic army dedicated to overthrowing the human gamete But Primave. These days I m not usually one for dystopic or gender wars science fiction But this book is the exception and the reason why the whole badly watered down subgenres exists What starts off seeming like an overly ornate piece of second wave misogyny with women reduced to concept taken to some new scary level uickly reveals itself to be a stunning display of genre acrobatics The tone is less science fiction than classical social commentary horror specifically grabbing Bram Stoker s uglinesses and turning them on their head while simultaneously and crushingly following them through to their natural conclusion A stunning cautionary tale about what lurks behind any closed system of ideals a brutal discussion of the relationship between cultural observers and observed a condemnation of the imposition of malignant conceptualization and design upon the trivialized and a dirty little tragedy of innocence however ersatz and tortured betrayed Gets a little too into the Hello Kitty goth pop vibe but even that fits in with the concept of the book If you trust the story for a few chapters it ll take you to some really interesting placesEdit A shorter version of this review would have been to say Wow So THAT S what s so creepy about anime

Nanoengineers have unleashed machine consciousness Revenge does not account for it Something infinitely sinister has happened Only Prim. If I d read this book a few years ago I wouldn t just have liked it it would have been a favorite Now though I feel a lot nebulous about it The writing is incredibly lush almost baroue in a world that starts with the intellectual conventions of cyberpunk but injects them with a startling excess of strangeness surrealism and the grotesue There are a lot of fascinating ideas in particular which makes it unfortunate that I had a lot of trouble overlooking the book s weaknesses The action is messy and thin to the point it really bothered me full of structural moves that mostly didn t work in my opinion and while there s something really fascinating about the relationship at the center of the book every other character was a sort of gaudy mouthpiece for worldbuilding There was a lot of emotion buried in this book but I had trouble accessing it and near the end I especially felt the plot was making moves it hadn t earned The problem I think is this tries to be a narrative driven book but it s uncomfortable with narrative which made it feel patchy and uneven for me with too few moments of lucidity despite the fantastic images and prose Some friends have told me the second and third novels become hyperstylized and abstract which seems like Calder playing to his strengths there s a good chance I might read them eventually despite this one not sitting well with me since I can t help thinking of my older self who would have loved the language and ideas despite what bothers me about the book now This is a mindspace than a novel I think and if I d been able to enter into it I would have liked the book a lot It could be where I m at mentally right now and the fact I was never able to read as much of it in one sitting as I liked but I was just never able to get inside though I m hoping if I try again with the seuels later I ll be able to

    Even better than Cythera Another jump into the Calder future with some of the same characters Very very nice Calder gives me a hard on litterally then makes me feel guilty then makes me feel perverse then makes me feel like an alien

    With scenes comparable to Gibson and the poetry of Bester this book could do no wrong Not cyberpunk but technoir A fast achingly gorgeous and brutally written novel that defines my taste in scifi As much a metaphor for the
