Autonomous

By Annalee Newitz

Autonomous is so much more than your average science fiction novel. Ms. Newitz deftly weaves moral questions that puzzle society today into this imagined world of our near future. What is our social responsibility to patients that require astronomically expensive medicine, and should we protect the corporations that create the medicines so that their research isn't stolen? Is gender just a physical set of attributes, or is it a state of mind as well? And can gender apply to non-human life forms? The novel starts off very quickly, and feels like a standard good vs. evil story, but sucks the reader in with thought-provoking situations and lively prose. I wish that I could read this novel again for the first time. –Christine, Chicago ORD
