The technical man that doesn`t care much for feelings and has problems understanding the world surrounding him. It makes a person think if it has something in common with Homo Faber - as mad and as unhuman as this being is. And the answer "no!" is not a very certain one. A bit of inverted Eudipus complex - a man sleeps with his own daughter without knowing that. Scary? You bet. The book probably doesn`t belong on my golden shelf (!) of favourite books but it stills is quite impressive.
