A few years ago, while waiting around for class to start at Austin Impact Jeet Kune Do, I got the bright idea to try doing an iron cross on some hanging hand ladders (I don’t know what they’re called, not even enough to google a picture). So there I was, my face three inches off the ground, with my arms straight out to the side, when I felt something give in my left shoulder. It hurt for a few days, and that was it. I forgot all about it.
I’m only half way through the book, but I wanted to leave a quick review. Last night, after reading chapter 35, I literally said, “Holy f****** s***!” It’s been a bit since a book has surprised me enough to speak outloud. Good job, Mr. Verastiqui, I’m impressed!
Perion Synthetics is a book that raises some interesting questions involving synthetic life living alongside “real” life. There is a faint flavor of “I, Robot” in parts of this, but this story definitely goes its own way.
