A Woman a Day Reviews
In all honesty this book probably deserves more than two stars for the barrage of great ideas thrown about in it. The world Farmer builds is trippy and funny and fires a million ideas a chapter without slowing things down with explanations. And it's loaded with sex and violence. But honestly it's pretty disposable and silly and was obviously written in a week for some quick money. I wouldn't recommend but you gotta respect the sort of mind that can write this sort of crap-in-a-week in a week.
2.5 stars. Not a bad read by any means, but there is no reason to seek it out either. There is plenty of intrigue and adventure. And violence. And sex. And because Farmer and 1960, violent sex. And the way he integrates religion and faith is quite nice and could have been explored more deeply.
A scifi book I read back around 1970 or thereabouts. Remember that I enjoyed reading it but unfortunately don't remember much about the plot.
Dr Leif Barker, undercover agent for the Cold War Corps of the state of March, is given orders to cremate a woman immediately without any examination. This piques his curiosity and he discovers organs that leads him to suspect the woman as an extra-terrestrial.I mostly enjoyed this book, with interesting world-building (existing states and power structures were wiped away when the vast majority of the world's population is destroyed by a genetically engineered virus) and society but the main problem for me came in the first chapter, where the protagonist rapes a woman. This is explained away by the fact that she was an enemy agent who was sent to seduce him, but it still reads uncomfortably and throws a pall on the rest of the book, throughout which Barker is portrayed fairly sympathetically. Probably not one that I'll go back to.
O livro começa de forma interessante e movimentada e o universo descrito é interessante. Mas o fim parece-me um bocado atabalhoado e forçado.Vale a pena ler, mas existem melhores livros do autor na coleção.
Compared to the first Riverworld book, this is a bit of a disappointment.
