    1. anaslair.wordpress/2015/0When I first started reading Untrustworthy, I was like What the heck are these beings??. They sounded humanoid, but only had either 3 or 4 fingers on their hands, depending on their gender, their mouths didn't really move much other than stretching - which constituted as a smile even though the corners would not move -, their blood was teal, and their genitals were placed in their hands. Also, both women and men could get pregnant. Needless to say I was completely hooked [...]


    2. Reviewed by Jaycee for BOOKS 'N COZY SPOTS BOOK REVIEWS, Talon-psCopy provided by author for honest review.At first blush, “Untrustworthy’s” alien society appears to be diverse and tolerant by all human standards. Women holding high profile positions of power, gender partnerships of every configuration, fertility possible on a random basis by both partners in multiple births, provided an upbeat beginning to the tale. Societal issues, ranging from military conflicts to number of sterile pre [...]


    3. I started reading Untrustworthy with only the summary on the back as my beginning information, so I assumed it was a story about futuristic human population on another planet in the vein of most dystopias I’ve read in the past. Imagine my surprise when I started reading and found out that not only is the story at the center of an alien society, but also that not a single character in the story is human! It was actually fairly refreshing to be taken wholly and completely away from the human per [...]


    4. Wow! This was my initial reaction when I read the first chapters of this book. The author throws you into this scifi alien world and turns everything in its head. In this world genetics, physical aspects of these aliens and the make up up their relationships are all totally different to our own but JR Gershen-Siegal does an unbelievable job in painting this world. Part 1984 part Brave New World part Avatar, many combinations of stories ran through my head but in truth this is completely unique. [...]


    5. I began reading this book, thinking WHAT?! Then that shifted to WHAT THE?! After that, I was thinking ok, 1984 influences here and influence from The Handmaid's Tale here. Then just as I began to settle into in a sense of familiarity, the author threw everything I thought was going on up into the air and my brain went back again to the WHAT?! And WHAT THE?! I'm still thinking about it. I will probably be thinking about it for quite some time. My rating would waiver, probably to a 4.25 if would [...]


    6. A wonderful story.Each time I thought I knew the direction of the story I found out that I was wrong and the author kept me wondering how it was all going to turn out.It's a great story that makes you think about sexuality, racism and even dictatorship and people's freedoms, truths and biases.At a time of Brexit and Trump where people's voting decisions are being fuelled by hate, distrust and fear, it is a very relevant story for today's society.


    7. This is a surprising book, Well put together, and frightening too. Ostensibly a story of a society in some unspecified place and time, it is actually a wonderful little paradigm for what can happen to any society in which a small cadre with an agenda takes over. Gershen-Siegel's writing is clear--even when her intention is to mislead because of the story--and it has excellence resonances. A real sleeper.


    8. Wonderful book!!This is a wonderful book, well thought out and imaginative.I would recommend this book to anyone that likes reading good science fiction.

    10. Untrustworthy is dystopian social science fiction dealing with gender politics and the persecution of minorities. Tathrelle and Ixalla are loving female spouses. They are members of an alien species of nine billion individuals living in a totalitarian society. Adger is a male coworker of Tathrelle’s who pursues her sexually. The book is didactic almost to the point of allegory. Its world-remaking conceit derives from Ursula Leguin’s The Lathe of Heaven. The writing is strangely emotionally d [...]
