Project HALFSHEEP

Susan Hasler ✓ 9 Read Summary ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Susan Hasler Summary Project HALFSHEEP Ured by the Army and stolen by the CIA she falls into the hands of a guilt ridden ex operative a psychiatrist with a lust for pharmacology and an Agency golden boy gone wrong They turn her into the centerpiece of Project HALFSHEEP. This is a complex novel to describe or review There s a lot of humor Since the alien learned English from Webster s dictionary her word choice is an ongoing source of humor She says she misplaced my consciousness and got in a feces load of trouble Her observations of humanity are also amusing as well as right on The humans think if they chop him time small and give him a ticking sound if they strap him to their wrists they can understand time but it s not so He is not nor ever will be effable Nor is he killable no matter how they talk about killing him Another favorite alien observation Arguing made humans stupider Basically all the sections narrated by the alien are great funny and perceptive from the moment she accidentally volunteers for this mission because she s daydreaming about genetically coloring her flocculent butt hot pink to the end where she s switching labels on the boxes in the archives for fun She arrives on earth shortly after WWII when the cold war was just developing and the CIA was formed She s captured by the army and then later taken by the CIA so the book is filled with satire about army stupidity and the pursuit and abuse of power in government agencies The CIA s experiments with psychoactive drugs on unwitting subjects is treated satirically too since the alien as well as the psychiatrist become rather fond of LSD and weedBut much of the book is also told in third person by a large cast of characters each one fully developed with a back story and internal and external conflicts A lot of these people are victims of domestic abuse The subjugation of women is an ongoing theme When the book leaves the alien and follows these other people its tone changes There isn t much humor and often the pacing slows I began to wonder if Hasler was trying to fit too much into one book or if it might be sharpened by a little cutting Or maybe she does successfully weave together the paranoia of the cold war the brutality of interrogations the abuses of government power the suppression of women and the horrific insensitivity of some scientists to their subjects Regardless I was enthralled all the way to the end and would recommend Project HALFSHEEP for its complexity its wit its insights its delightful alien and its skewering of the CIA

Susan Hasler ✓ 9 Read Summary ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Susan Hasler Summary Project HALFSHEEP A Top Secret program to test mind control drugs But Piyat is not so easy to controlPROJECT HALFSHEEP is a darkly funny blend of science fiction and political satire informed by the real life excesses of the CIA in its earliest year. I received this book free from the author for an honest review Language drug use Project Halfsheep is well written book by Susan Hasler It has a solid plot that pulls you into it I liked the alien and although the promised plot takes a while to develop there are no slow spaces Everything is well thought out and flows from one scene to the next Susan Hasler does an excellent job at keeping the unbelievable believable and the story is completely uniueThere were a few things that became a little distracting but most of the things I didn t like were nitpicky For example I wanted the Trudie s story to be linked to Alice Webster s there was a lot of time spent setting up the her story and then it seemed to be replaced with that of Lee s story However even with the few little things I would still highly recommend this book

Fictional aliens have visited Earth many times in the pastSome have been friendly others terrifying but none even ET have been as human as Piyat the unwilling female volunteer shot to Earth from a dying planet in author Susan Hasler s excellent Project HALFSHEEP Or How the Agency s Alien Got HighI found this to be a wonderful book on many levelsIt is for example beautifully written Hasler has a real command of the language and her talents are on full display in this novel of life in the United States in the years following World War II Her descriptions of people of places and of events are spot on and they rope the reader into her narrativeAnd what a narrative it is Full of all the paranoia that marked America in the Age of McCarthy and other right wing demagogues who cynically used the Red Scare to win elections and Constitutional concessions from the people they were allegedly trying to protect Their paranoia allows them to treat Piyat with disdain and a total lack of humanity They imprison her experiment on her and treat her roughly utterly failing to realize that she is intelligent than they are by a long measure Her treatment because she is alien closely parallels the treatment of Trudie the woman who first recognizes that Piyat is special in a way the buttoned down fear driven men around her do not Like Piyat Trudie is also imprisoned Her cell is a loveless marriage to a cruel man who controls her life and her propertyPerhaps that s why she and Piyat bond so uicklyIn any event Hasler s dual story lines give her the opportunity to make some very sharp observations about the status of women during the Fifties and the presentIn addition Hasler who spent than two decades working for the CIA casts a knowing eye on the workings of it and other intelligence agencies back in the day when it was often considered disloyal to voice any criticism of the government and its workings It was a time when even newspaper reporters and editors took uiet payoffs from the CIA and other agencies for privately informing on co workers and people they came into contact with A terrible time in American history despite the Herculean efforts of television and the film industry to paint it as idyllic Hasler s descriptions of the self righteous men who ran the country s spy agencies in those dark days perfectly captures in my opinion their lack of respect for women their recklessness their paranoia and their almost complete perversion of the American idealThis is an excellent novel that will sometimes make you smile sometimes make you laugh and sometimes make you wonder why we Americans are always so ready to judge on appearances aloneIn short it is a novel that will make you thinkI highly recommend it
