it was amazing

Tanith Lee is gifted at crafting detailed worlds and rich characters, and “The Silver Metal Lover” does not disappoint. On the surface, this is a book about a teenage girl falling in love for the first time and gaining a sense of self she could never develop while standing in her mother’s shadow - and it’s riveting. But beneath this, the book offers some incredible insights into a world that has become so technologically advanced there’s little need for a working class... even though that working class still exists. All the political and sociological turmoil simmers in the distant background, though, letting the romance between Jane and Silver take center stage. I’ve read this book so many times my poor mass market paperback is crumbling (fingers crossed that we’ll see a Kindle version soon!) - this book is one of my all time favorites.
