Review by Sylak
Good science fiction sends your mind racing off in many directions all at once and at differing speeds. You'll be focused on an immediate situation involving you questioning your own morality, or accepting a hitherto alien concept, whilst your mind quietly unravels a theme that was presented to you in a previous chapter. Flow My Tears, the Policeman said is just such a story.I had absolutely no idea what to expect before reading it except that I was following a good recommendation; and as it turned out it worked out for the best. I found myself totally immersed in the plot. At times it felt to me like reading parts of William F. Nolan's 'Logan's Run' and Dick's 'We Can Remember It for You Wholesale' in others.Some of the chapters gave me a lot to think about such as chapter eleven when Ruth Rae discusses her feelings of grief and loss with Jason Taverner. Little things like that sit in the back of your mind as other things overlap to form a rich cocktail of flavours that make this for me a deeply satisfying novel.As you can see, I've chosen not to give anything away concerning the actual story; so, please do enjoy.
