Publisher's Summary

Mute is science fantasy of mutation and psi: special mental powers. The protagonist, Knot, is a double mutant: He has a physical deformity, and the psi power to make others forget him. He's satisfied with his life - until the lovely Finesse walks into his life to recruit him for a dangerous galactic mission. She is aided by two small animal mutants: a telepathic weasel and a clairvoyant crab. Knot tries to resist, aided by his psi, but the woman's beauty and the animals' powers doom him to a phenomenal adventure.

Would you try another book from Piers Anthony and/or Steven Menasche?

I would not read another Piers Anthony book after this travesty however Steven Menasche's narration was probably the only reason I held on through the end.


What didn’t you like about Steven Menasche’s performance?

Great narration. No problems there.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Interesting take on a society built around psi powers.


Any additional comments?

Sexist. Misogynistic. Pointless. Abrupt ending. Multiple times found myself question the actions of the characters, in that if they had just used the powers/ resources they had used earlier in the book they could have easily overcome their current hurdle. Example: *SPOILERS* During the final battle why did Knot wait until the majority of his group was dead/ incapacitated to align with the bees and get the override code for the door to the main CC power room. He could have aligned with the bees in the first control room they entered. *END SPOILERS* Sloppy writing. Really didn't want to finish the book and would have been happier if I had stopped half way through saving myself from the pointless ending. There are no other reviews for this book which is why I am leaving one, in hopes that I save at least one other unsuspecting listener from my fate. But what do I know? I'm just a woman.
