Mirror Reversal

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
Ever since social psych class in the early ‘60s, I was enthralled by William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. Many readers of the novel were alarmed without knowing why. The story is an allegory of Freudian psychoanalytic theory where each character represents an aspect of the theory—superego, ego and id. They were reading the story of humanity.

Let's do the same for Dawkin's The Selfish Gene. More

A great read! I give it five stars. The characters are enchanting, very well developed, the plot is intriguing, the descriptions of New York City interesting, and the ideas that swirl around within the story are stimulating. It's a book taylor made for a book club with members that thrive on lively discussions.

Review by: Ernest Kinnie on June 17, 2013 :
Maybe this book was written by a guy who has led a full, life, with his eyes wide open, and a great imagination. But, I suspect it was written by a woman with a fake name, who has had considerable real world experience on the street, to put it as nicely as I can. Either way, the settings in the book are wonderfully REAL and so are the people. Beautifully written, outrageous, and over the top. The book is either hilariously funny or horribly serious, depending on your mood and belief system.

I read the hard cover edition a year ago but only gave it four stars because parts of the book were a little too polemical for me. No problem this time. Now the polemics are nicely woven into the story, so it well deserves an unqualified 5 stars. If you want a fun romp in the sun and a weird journey through the mirror, buy the book.
