Storyline 15Characters 15Writing Style 25World 15What makes science fiction so wondrous are the ideas Good science fiction can take those ideas and do something good with them Good science fiction leads to new interesting uestions and possibilities It explains the mechanics of or significance of abstruse topics It throws the ideas into fun adventures giving them a role Gerrold had the big ideas part of science fiction down But nothing was done with them There is no adventure here Difficult topics are not successfully explained New uestions and possibilities never follow from the premise There was some effort at the last of those Gerrold however never seemed to be able to commit to an idea or to a uestion At some points in the story we are led to discussions about sentience while at others it was love In some portions of the story the idea under investigation was truth elsewhere it was sanity The circumstances had not changed We still had the same characters Gerrold is simply unsure of what uestions or possibilities follow from his initial big ideaThe author does have some sort of conclusion A goal perhaps One based on optimism of technological progress and a belief in the greatness of science The problem with taking this seriously as a reader is that as with his big ideas Gerrold never convincingly persuades the reader that he is one with good insights or answers The reason for hopping around to so many new partially formed ideas is that Gerrold does not seem to know about the things he s writing about The author does not appear to either informed or articulate That was particularly problematic for a book that had such weak characterization a psychologist who does not appear to know any psychology a renaissance man who never showcases his knowledge and limited drama here too Gerrold had difficulty with committing to a decision What the book does have going for it is that it anticipated some technological developments in the future I ve not seen an earlier and accurate description of the internet Gerrold published this in 1972 Probably some of the descriptions of computers and computing possibilities were really cutting edge Some might even argue that cyberpunk starts here It is scarcely recognizable but so many of the elements of that future genre which William Gibson would get recognition for founding 12 years later are present here So perhaps I do him some disservice and this was revealing and thought provoking than I give it credit for It did not age well though and I just cannot find a way to enjoy this from the vantage point of early 1970s readers Too much of what was probably novel is taken for granted today I found little else to appreciate

Free download ↠ When HARLIE Was One Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download ê PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Á David Gerrold Free download When HARLIE Was One Lso the story of HARLIE's fight against being turned off the philosophical uestion whether or not HARLIE is human; for that matter what it means to be human The HARLIE intelligence engine appears in a number of Gerrold's other works including the Star Wolf series where it is routinely installed as the administrating AI of Terran warship. An enjoyable mesh of science fiction and philosophy HARLIE is the first AI computer and HARLIE and the director of the operation that created him David Auberson spend part of this novel conversing via teletype machines on the philosophy of life and so love Along with the big uestions of why are we here and why do spend so much time accumulating digital watches It is also a story of intrigue as Auberson and his colleague Don Handley race to fight a board of directors intent on shutting HARLIE off for being non profitable But Gerrold uses this frame work as a jumping off point to explore many other ideas The character Handley expounds at great lengths on computer viruses what they are and how they promulgate through a system Yeah BFD right Except this book was published in 1972 some 14 years before the first computer virus was written according to most sources So yeah interesting ideas here on the tech of computers and even a fairly convincing idea of why they communicatie with HARLIE via teletype as opposed to voice A very satisfying read and fun as well If you love science fiction you should consider this time well spent
