    Surprising depth in its discussion of the psychological, philosophical, ethical and legal ramifications of cybernetics, bionics and artificial life extension through partial and complete body replacement.

    This is one of my all time favorite SF books I read it ages ago but it is fresh in my memory The title is The Modular Man but the main character is a woman The book is about disabled people who are enabled by technology by different means.

    I enjoyed this book quite a lot, the issues it explores are soon to be relevant to us all and some of the solutions will be worth discussing when we get there However, I am appalled at the writers continued and pervasive assumption that disabled people are or should be ashamed to go out in public That going out in a power chair is somehow harmful to their health That going out in a chair makes them less than other people Suzanne, the main character, might have had some of that feeling be I enjoyed this book quite a lot, the issues it explores are soon to be relevant to us all and some of the solutions will be worth discussing when we get there However, I am appalled at the writers continued and pervasive assumption that disabled people are or should be ashamed to go out in public That going out in a power chair is somehow harmful to their health That going out in a chair makes them less than other people Suzanne, the main character, might have had some of that feeling because she is newly disabled in the story, but the sentiment goes deeper than that The other characters think about how shameful it must be for her Other characters who have artificial parts are ashamed to say so in polite society I m not disabled myself, but I know many people who are and none of them are ashamed of that, nor should they be They are too busy living their own lives Shame on the author for spreading such a harmful assumption

    A fun I Robot novel by Isaac

  6. Terry Thompson Terry Thompson says:

    This is a very intriguing book, far fetched, maybe, maybe not Has a pretty good story, makes you wonder what is in store for mankind in the future.

    I enjoyed this simple premise about cybernetics muchthan I thought I would as the plot continued to build to a great climax while Allen kept me turning the pages
