Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Although not technically an android or even a cyborg, Heinlein's title character experiences much the same prejudice/racism usually reserved for them in such stories, as she is an "Artificial Person" ultimately seeking her place in the world.

...The Grand Master has done it again: Friday is as tight and fast-paced as a Puppetmaster's, and even more fun to read.
