life support for the brain Sanity is the thread through the labyrinth f the Minotau Entertaining but a characterization f a trans person that swings between mildly to wildly The Windy Season offensive and that s setting aside that thenly person f colour in the entire book is a two dimensional racist stereotype That Winterson is promoting this book about a trans protagonist by arguing against healthcare for trans teens is especially dious Have you ever read a book where you have to keep re reading paragraphs A Month of Sundays or even entire pages not because your mind drifted and you don t know what you just read but because you do know what you read and it delighted you so much that you simply have to read it again I haven t come across many writers who do that for me Jeanette Winterson is an exception and Frankissstein isne Evangeline, a Master For Tonight Companion Novel of those books Reading this book gave my brain a fantastic joltn just about every page a flood Beneath the Jolly Roger of dopamine and serotonin repeatedly washed through my brain The sheer exuisitenessf the prose the ingenious metaphors and the philosophical aspects Merzbook: The Pleasuredome of Noise

What if anything sets humans apart from Rim of the Pit (Rogan Kincaid, other living beings If we succeed in creating true AI how will it feel about being created to serve usr about living amongst us I mention that Ry is transgender because Ms Winterson uses this story to show that gender is than just the body we inhabit and that we humans are far complex than They Also Serve our genders and any labels that are slapped upon usr even given to us by Conversations From The Neighborhood Ice Cream Shop: 8 Keys To Rediscovering Lost Dreams And Finding Your Life's Calling ourselves Labels are helpful in navigating the world but no person can fully inhabit any category We transcendur labelsRon Lord is perhaps the funniest character I ve come across in a Jeanette Winterson book He is a sexbot salesman misogynistic and unable to accept Ry as he is Claire the counterpart to Mary Shelley s step sister is an evangelical Christian who is at first against the idea No Time for Sergeants of sexbots though later convinces Ron to create and sell bots for Jesus as well Christian companions wink wink for the devout I laughed many times reading the dialogue between these two characters fullut

those who delight in word play all will love this newest gem from Jeanette Winterson In my pinion it is her greatest work thus far Many thanks to Jeanette Winterson Grove Press and Edelweiss for providing me with a free digital review copy This in no way influenced my reviewPublication date October 2019 I am disappointed and deeply uncomfortable yikes I am not trans so please take my review with a grain f salt but dear god at best this book is irresponsibly and deeply clueless and in bad taste at worst it s vaguely terfy why does a cis woman who does not even understand the most basic things about gender such as trans men are men being trans and being gay is not the same and being trans is not inherently about feminism think that she can write a book about gender with a trans man as the protagonist it was bad giving the benefit f the doubt the nicest thing I can say here is that this author does not understand how gender works I highly doubt that any trans men were consulted while writing this book there was a weird focus n his genitals too Large Catechism of Martin Luther overall this feels very disrespectful toward trans people As a sidenote there was also some fatphobia in this book and even apartf the trans representation the feminist themes were very shallow and Junior Jolt one noteAlso the book did this annoying thing where it didn t use uotation marks for its dialogue because it s so literary Funny deeply humane and uite thought provoking Humans so many good ideas So many failed ideals General storylineCertainly better written than theriginal in my Ceux de la posie vcue opinion Jeanette Winterson follows Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley when she writes Frankenstein and mixes this with a reimaginingf this tale set in a tomorrow bsessed with AI robotics and immortalityI especially liked the parts relating the story f Mary Shelley and what her inspirations could have been to write Frankenstein She is portrayed as young reflective and sligh. In Brexit Britain a young transgender doctor called Ry is falling in love – against their better judgement – with Victor Stein a celebrated professor leading the public debate around AIMeanwhile Ron Lord just divorced and living with Mum again is set to make his fortune launching a new generation f sex
