Eaving a trail of lethal overdoses across what used to be North America a drug that compels people to become addicted to their workOn Jack’s trail are an unlikely pair an emotionally shut down military agent and his partner Paladin a young military robot who f Pirates and bounty hunters on the high chemical and electronic frontier Add a bit of transgendered robot issues a bit of do gooder pharmaceutical mayhem and time split between labs parties sexual repression and a few really big uestions explored deftly and interestingly and we've got ourselves a very interesting SFLet's look at the top layer a little Slavery issues The novel takes them on for both robots and humans eually I'd expected that from both the blurb and the cover of course but I don't think I expected the writing to have such good world building thrown in The whole chemical and big pharm complications were neither simple or dismissable and that was only on the human side What would a world be like with open patents and sharing of chems and development all of which is still being slowly strangled by capitalism Take it a bit farther Now let's start programming or deprogramming ourselves since we're so reliant on our own biologies Seriously this is some pretty neat stuff and while we've had a bit of a discussion in this field for decades already Newitz makes a cool tale and makes some very deft comparisons and mirroring hereThe tale itself if good if not spectacular I had a good time Still I obviously appreciate the explorations of the messages than anything else Thanks Netgalley for the ARC

AutonomousAutonomous features a rakish female pharmaceutical pirate named Jack who traverses the world in her own submarine A notorious anti patent scientist who has styled herself as a Robin Hood heroine fighting to bring cheap drugs to the poor Jack’s latest drug is l I loved this It did for AI and Patents and Biotech what Neuromancer and Snowcrash did for the Internet The stuff I loved the most is all spoiler y so I'll just say that there are two competing narrative characters who are at clear odds with each other and each is the villain in the other's story The thing that Annalee Newitz does so well and she does everything well in this book is to make each of these characters not only the hero of their own story but to allow us to identify with them when they take control of the narrative Each is flawed and tragic and heroic in their own way and I can't recall the last time I read a book that handled the conflict so elegantlyI highly recommend AUTONOMOUS
