  • This obscure work was the first book I ever read about Artificial Intelligence. I was enthralled. As a child just on the cutting edge of the computer generation explosion this book captured my attention and held it throughout. I'm surprised that this book is not more well known. It's well written, factual (for the time), emotive, and just a great story!

  • Love this book!

  • Ariel by André Maurois is a fictionalized biography of poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822). Shelley, the son of a wealthy landowner, went to school at Eton, where he was bullied. He was expelled from Oxford for publishing a pamphlet called The Necessity of Atheism. His father was enraged when he heard about this pamphlet, and this caused him to break off relations with his son; the two of them were never reconciled. Shelley married 16-year-old Harriet Westbrook, a friend of his sisters, rescuing her from a bad situation at home and school. But Harriet was not his intellectual equal, and their marriage was very unhappy. While still married to Harriet, Shelley fell in love with Mary Godwin, the daughter of his mentor, the philosopher William Godwin, and feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, who died giving birth to her. Shelley left his wife and lived with Mary, which caused a huge scandal in society. Godwin would have nothing to do with the couple, even though he relied on Shelley to pay his debts. Harriet eventually committed suicide over her husband’s affair, even though, according to Maurois, she had suicidal tendencies all her life. Shelley and Mary married, and Godwin forgave them, but pretended they had not been living together for several years.

    Their troubles were far from over, though. A court refused to give Shelley custody of his two children by Harriet. He had several children by Mary, but all but one died as babies or small children. The couple spent much of their time in Italy, where Mary’s stepsister Claire lived with them. Claire had a brief affair with Lord Byron and gave birth to a daughter, but she really loved Shelley, and Mary became jealous. Maurois believes that the relationship between Shelley and Claire was innocent, but others disagree. Shelley died by drowning when his boat, the Ariel, sank. His poetic genius was never recognized during his lifetime, unlike that of his friend Byron, whose poems were the bestsellers of their time. Mary Shelley, of course, became the author of Frankenstein, but Maurois does not talk about Mary as an author, or even say much about Shelley’s poetry; the focus is on their relationship. But his book provides a very good introduction to Shelley.

  • This was one of the first books related to computers, much less Artificial Intelligence, that I ever read. It's excellent. Interesting story, personal drama, technical details, a precocious teen tied in just enough to not make it all about him, espionage, etc. And let's not forget Ariel herself... an AI that makes you WANT AI NOW.

    I have gone thru 3 copies of the paperback edition of this book, and probably re-read it over 200 times in the 25+ years since I first received it. I can't say enough about it, grab a copy for yourself and your own children, and let them wonder what would make AI possible.

    Every time I finish this book, I'm smiling.

  • Wild and wonderful this book is, and on the jacket it claims (rightfully) that Maurois "created in this book an authentic and memorable style, which established a new form of dramatic biography." It was written in 1924 and I discovered it in 2005 on a long meditation/contemplation retreat in southern Spain, so the conditions, while not predicable, were perfect.

    If you're intrigued by Percy Shelley, and Mary Shelley, and Byron … trust me, these are glorious pages.
