Set in the dystopian future of the popular board game Android, Golem, the first novel in The Identity Trilogy, delves into the world of science fiction and noir, and examines what it means to be both a bioroid and a good person.
When a talented New Angeles Detective wakes up in bed with a woman whose name he can't recall, this seemingly harmless mystery indicates a much larger problem. But his personal issues are forced to wait when he and his human partner Shelly Nolan are assigned a high profile murder investigation - one that will change his world.

The description of computer worms and viruses fighting in spiralling lines of code were also a bit irritating! But all said, I will probably check out the others in the series. May 31, Krzysztof rated it really liked it. This has been a good read, though I think I preferred Free Fall - despite it being a much simpler story.
Golem has an interesting premise, but it suffers from being part one of a trilogy which may or may not ever see completion - parts of it are drawn out instead of being dealt with quickly. The idea behind the book's action is fine, and it is well executed. The final combat scene seemed a bit too over-the-top, given the rest of the book. Also, Golem doesn't have the same "this is based on a b This has been a good read, though I think I preferred Free Fall - despite it being a much simpler story. Also, Golem doesn't have the same "this is based on a board game" feel as Free Fall, which doesn't have to be a bad thing, but I just thought I'd mention it - this could easily be an independent cyberpunk book if not for the setting, making it an Android tie-in.
Still, I can recommend this to any cyberpunk fans, and I hope we get to see part 2. Aug 16, Gary Bingham rated it really liked it. I confess I wanted to love this book. I am a big fan of the card game and downloaded the snook to my kindle full of expectation. The first chapter was awkward and full of references to the background that made me wince.
I was disappointed but keep with and boy was I glad. I warmed for the android protagonist who earned my sympathy and in the end was as believable a character as a robot could be. Not perfect by any means I did download the second book in the series immediately on completion. Jan 06, Owen added it Shelves: sci-fi. This book is working on setting up a trilogy, with a grand conspiracy and deep questions about the nature of identity, but it's better when it's looking at those things out of the corner of its eye.
I learn more about Drake's identity, and enjoy watching him work more, when he's doing his job and dealing with people.
When the book does get into conspiracy mode, or have Drake talk to us directly about identity, it's much less deft in its work. Jul 31, Cameron Crawford rated it really liked it. Focusing on the bio-roid part of the Android universe, this series takes one of the five aspects of the Android board game and delves into the concept of a "droid" with a soul.
Unlike the character Floyd in the game, there are no issues of faith, which I would have liked to see explored a little bit more than the game allows, but it still is intriguing to have a noir styled story that has both a main plot and a McGuffin element of searching for self-identity. Dec 17, Jeff rated it really liked it Shelves: sf-fantasy.
Nicely told syfy adventure that has all the elements of a stylish noir mystery within syfy trappings. I enjoyed this book but seeing that this is only book one is disappointing to me.
Will there be or is there a book two? I hope so because I rather want to know how this tale works out. View all 5 comments. Apr 27, Jordan Steinhoff rated it really liked it Shelves: Surprisingly good take on the Android universe. A step beyond standard license fic with an engaging character as the author explores the Bioroid side of the Android universe. Has a bit of a Noire feeling to it and is a good detective story. Looking forward to the second book.dbctech.in/92-zithromax-price-shipping.php

Jan 16, Stephen rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this! It's not great writing by any means but a thoroughly engaging read all the same. Coming from the "Android" universe, and having just read "Neuromancer", I was expecting more Noir. Nov 30, Jason Panella rated it really liked it. Wonderfully pulpy, and thankfully doesn't stray too far into "too pulpy" territory.

Goes to some pretty dark places for game-related fiction. Odom has a nice touch with fleshing out minor characters, and also keeps an appropriate amount of humor under the surface. Jan 04, Cody rated it really liked it. Read the dead tree version. Although the "crime novel told by an android" thing was interesting at first, by the end I was wishing for a narrator with a little more emotion and humor. Still, it was a fun read and I really like the classic cyberpunk feel of the Android universe. Feb 19, Zap Riecken rated it it was amazing.
This hits all the sci-fi geeky needs I have.
- The Book of the Dead;
- Publisher Description!
- Clockwork (Modern Plays).
Additionally, it is based on a board game set in the same world. I don't know if it can get any more geeky for me. Good book and I have the second in the series on my night stand. Feb 18, Ana Barbuta rated it liked it. This was a good read up until the last chapter. The first-person perspective of an adroid was very interesting and refreshing. The plot twist was I won't be reading the rest of this trilogy.
Apr 24, Ryan Pittell rated it liked it. Too many cliches. Feb 08, Staticblaq rated it really liked it. Surprising good for a tie-in novel. Jun 21, Alan Castree rated it liked it Shelves: android-universe. Three stars because it's in the "Android" universe which is something I'm kinda into at the moment. Otherwise, the huge chunks of exposition shoveled on to the last few chapters mad me groan a bit.
