5.0 out of 5 stars great dark science fiction. read it!, March 24, 1998
This review is from: Acts of Conscience (Mass Market Paperback)
This is what science fiction is all about. The world is not a very nice place. People are morons. Is this going to change even in the far future? According to William Barton, definately not.
This book shows in typical Barton fashion, the horrific acts that mankind is capable of performing - and performing with trivial abandon. It reminds us that despite all the "technology" we have, we are still responsible for our own actions - the actions that we take deliberately, or the action that we take through in-action, as is the case for our _hero_ in "Acts of Conscience" for much of the book. He frustratingly plays the role of real person with real human needs and drives caught in circumstances beyond what most people are capable of dealing with. In circumstance where your cliche'd, happy fantasy tail would call for a hero, our character shows up and refeshingly behaves like a real person - sometimes even a jerk.
This is a book that grabs you, and throws images into your face from the true heart of humanity. You may not like what you see, but you must applaud Barton for showing it to you.
