    This is the first Harlan Ellison novel I've ever read I was pretty impressed with the plot which involves the world's only empath being asked by a friend and DA to dive into the mind of a convicted serial killer she has fallen in love with to prove his innocence Excellent plot twists however I didn't find the main character's voice entirely consistent He was supposed to be a well educated black man from humble beginnings and the African American collouialisms Ellison sometimes employed felt a little forced and out of place This could be because I just watched a documentary on Ellison and could only imagine his voice speaking all the lines I also thought the ending was a tad neat and tidy for the bleakness of the first half but the story really did grab me

    This is an excellent novella by Ellison that takes a very different look at the use of a common sf trope psi powers The books' politically correct stance seems a little creaky now in being a bit self conscious and postured and I didn't think he uite captured the main characters voice perfectlyprobably because the authorial voice is so strong that it over powers everything else Still it's a wonderfully written piece and a fine and thought provoking story

    I don't think I've ever read a book before and wished it was a graphic novel but with this one I did Maybe it was a combo of the cover and the intro by Frank Miller that put the thought in my head but whilst I was reading it I kept thinking this is really shitty narration all telling no showing repetitive and would be a MUCH cooler albeit graphic graphic novel So in that way it was a let down Plus apparently he's won a lot of awards and people tend to like his prose style but I wasn't much of a fan It was too thriller esue And the plot was pretty interesting and original I guess except it was simultaneously predictable I predicated the ending but not the VERY ending which has a little twist So eh If this whole book is an allegoryvieled social commentary about black people and the prison system which it totally COULD be but I doubt it then it's cool If it's just a literal story about mind reading maniacs eh

    The cover and introduction by Frank Miller where he writes about dead eyes and dead voices is very cool I read this book when it first came out Still have it in my library It's a story about telepathy and a serial killer Rudy Pairis is a well educated black man with telepathic abilities and one true friend in the world a deputy district attorney named Allison Roche Allison who once had a brief sexual liaison with Rudy presumes on that relationship to ask him to do the unthinkable She wants him to slip into the mind of the most heinous serial killer she has ever tried to send to the chair and he's not in the least bit excited about this It's a good fun tale and I really enjoyed it

    One of Ellison's few long form novella length stories brilliant Harlan told a story once about Roland Emmerich Director of crap movies like Independence Day The Day After Tomorrow etc coming to pitch for rights to the film rights He described Emmerich as speaking like a valley girl with a German accent Bang on Also my reviews will not spoil anything in fact they may not even say much about the story But this is a good one one of Harlan's best

    With a cover from renowned artist Frank Miller one should know that this little book makes a powerful read Told through a man who can jump into the mids of others this tale of a wrongfully convicted inmate provides two shocking twists before entering its satisfying conclusion A highly recommended read

    Yet another amazing story by Harlan Ellison I must admit that I was initially drawn to the book due to the involvement of Frank Miller but once Ellison starts to do what he does best it's all about his extraordinary storytelling ability

    Incredible novella with a twist I didn’t see coming And then a second even better twist I didn’t see coming BrilliantI couldn’t possibly review this story without spoiling it so I’ll just say if you like noir don’t pass this one up
