Review by: Christi Killien on Feb. 28, 2011 :
This is a totally fresh and original take on the classic myth set in a bleak, not-too-distant, entirely plausible future America with a computer-hacking gazillionaire hero named Robert Hunter. Labor is done by robots, unemployment is the norm, and most Americans live in poverty. Brian Rush describes the economic history in detail, and the issue of robot soldiers is chillingly timely. The cyber-robot plot works, and there's plenty of computer code talk and robot weaponry for those so enthralled -- but not too much. Brian writes too well to be boring. My favorite part of this creative story is the lineage of Robins. Robert has to carve out his own incarnation of the hero that his father and grandfather were before him. The short novella form works, too. I like the pace and focus and the way it all swirls around a symbol, in this case, mythology. This makes a wonderful first book in Robert Hunter's quest to provoke a successful social and economic revolution.
