Damon Knight ☆ 4 Read

Read & Download The People Maker Ü PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Implications of this machine are explored in a brilliant and terrifying extrapolation. This was an intensely irritating book for me It starts with the invention of the gismo a device that can duplicate anything placed on it with no expenditure of energy From this it would seem that a Paradise for mankind should arise but within two or three chapters we see that the book decides to take a very different line with this idea With material possessions now no longer an issue there still needs to be some way of differentiating grades of people so slavery returnsThis came completely out of left field for me but after thinking about it it sort of makes a kind of sense If all that is left of value is labour then who controls it controls the society I think this is a very American attitude well a certain sort of extreme right wing American a European book with a similar premise would probably have gone along very different linesThe majority of the book is set about 70 years after the invention of the gismo when the new slave society is established as we follow a young freeman sent off by his family to spend a year as an officer in the army of the local baron in an almost Gormenghastian mountain castleestateThere were some interesting ideas especially later in the book following a slave revolt but I just couldn t get past the opening premise and failed to really enjoy this book Particularly the rather bleak ending
