Great (RASPUTIN THE SEQUAL IS COMING OUT)!!!!!!!!!!
am 27. November 1998
This book is wonderful. it's about a monkey who is tied (figuer of speech) to his owner. It's the future. All the greatest people, and some of the not so great, have witness. Witness are animals who have been "enhanced". People somewhere haveput computer chips into them so they can understand and react to human speech. They are made to record their owners actions. They have pretty much a photographic memory, only with computer chips. they can download images onto a computer where they are saved for future generations to look at. That way people in the future can better understand and rember people of the past. The witness have one problem though. they are made to love their masters. When they finally get over that though (many years after they are enhanced) they are obviously mad. Who wouldn't be after realizing that your intire life was a fix. Back to the story, Lovelock is the monkey. His owner is going to go on a trip to a new world. They are a group of professional people who are going to try to colonize a new planet. Their family has a problem though. The husban is a adulter, his mother is so amazingly bitchy that durring the book I actully shouted at her. The husbands father is weak and wont stand up against his wife. They also have two little kids that are very prissy. Durring the book Lovelock starts realizing how he has been held pretty much in captivity. This book is about his incounters with mean, and nice people. It is also about the family he lives with. It is very well written with wonderfull ideas and charecters (you're going to want to hit the mother). OSC's style is wonderful to. A great read.
