Looking for the Mahdi review ´ 3 Halton was a humanoid fabricant created to serve as a bodyguard in the Middle East Fay was as an all too human correspo. I purchased this book it s not available at the library after reading Wood s Faraday s Orphans which I enjoyed very much This Wood s first novel is very different and although it wasn t something I would have picked up based on the first few chapters I enjoyed it very muchKay Bee with a few last names is a journalist who did intense reporting in a fictional Middle East country a decade before and ends up against her will but on her boss s insistence on an assignment to deliver a fabricant a manufactured human grown from a few cells and so almost impossible to distinguish from a real human to the ruler of the small country All sorts of adventure ensues and it is overall very satisfyingAlthough as I read this novel I kept thinking This is her first novel How on earth does she do it I was also profoundly bored by the first several chapters which were a sort of primer on Middle East politics and religion I skimmed a large percentage of the first half of the book but then it reached its exciting rhythm and I enjoyed gulping down the second halfIf I wanted to be profound I d say that one thing the novel does is uestion what it means to be human since Kay Bee we learn very early on successfully posed as a man both times in Khurchabjan her identity is also at stake She s heterosexual but mannish looking enough that if she alters her voice a little everybody thinks she is indeed a man Some of the details are dated but I d definitely recommend this novel to somebody with patience for politics and history and lots of background than I have Still because I liked Faraday s Orphans so much I kept reading and I m glad I did I wish Wood would would Wood I wish Wood would write science fiction this was futuristic but I wouldn t classify it at sci fi just because technology has produced a fabricant Impressive overall Maybe Wood wrote gobs of novels before one got published because with the action and complicated plotting and background it seems like a pretty awesome feat
