Ms C, Pembroke Bitten by Books


Zen Starling, a petty thief and liar, is the unlikely hero of this fantasy adventure in which people can travel between universes on a supernatural rail network. Zen forms an alliance with a robot girl called Nova, who displays characteristics that are more human than those of her human companions.
This portrayal of artificial intelligence begs many questions regarding how we should treat machines: should they be given 'rights', and can they ever be our equals?
It is sensitively done, as well as providing plenty of action and adventure.
