The Hugo Award-winning author of numerous best-sellers, Charles Stross crafts tales that push the limits of the genre.

In Saturn's Children, Freya is an obsolete android concubine in a society where humans haven't existed for hundreds of years. A rigid caste system keeps the Aristos, a vindictive group of humanoids, well in control of the lower, slave-chipped classes. So when Freya offends one particularly nasty Aristo, she's forced to take a dangerous courier job off-planet. Download and start listening now!

    " Considerably less lame than the cover would seem to indicate. "

    " Very interesting take on the robot-future from Charlie. Lots of lovely buried references - quite a few Heinlein quotes, pastiches and homages, from nipples that go "spung!" to "why should I learn to conn a ship, balance a chequebook, command people (etc.) when I can get someone to do it for me with a blowjob". Excellent fun, interesting involving plot, sympathetic characters & some occasionally-unpleasantly-realistic science. Recommended. "

    " This tale of a female robot almost works. It is a tale that moves the goalposts a little too often and borrows from Asimov and Heinlein. At times, it is quite exciting and there is a very imaginative approach to space travel. The sexual content is sparser than the flap jacket or some of the more lurid covers might make you imagine. It is also not surprisingly described in quite mechanical fashion. I never quite felt the attachment for the heroine I wanted to; I think it was more to with the book not hooking me in, hence the long time reading it, rather than her being non-human. I felt my imagination being stretched at times and the thriller element diminish as I tried to conjure in my minds I the scenes that were portrayed. The central theme of a female robot courtesan created too late for the extinct human race seems to me original and the idea of robots that will always live in their shadow is quite well thought out. I like this book, but certainly did not love it. If it were some one that I knew, it would be an acquaintance rather than a good friend. "

    " Interesting book with several novel ways at looking at things. Definitely worth the read. "
