Product Description

About the Author

B. Cameron Lee has had over forty occupations during his life to date, these include farming, truck driving, tour guiding, driller's assistant, clerk, barman, wine waiter and many more. A twenty year stint as a Veterinarian, including two trips from New Zealand to Venezuela on cattle boats was the longest of them. In 2003, while living in South Korea for eight months and walking the mountains around Seoul, he wrote his first book, The Final Song, longhand, and followed it up with Rewind a year or so later. Bitten by the writing bug, he has written a number of books in various genres, some completed while building his own house. Currently he is living near Brisbane and working on finishing a three volume Sword and Sorcery fantasy epic. Stay tuned.

What a read! I know some people won't agree with it but I throughly enjoyed the read. I couldn't wait for my breaks and lunches in work to read it!

The story could be a peak into our future the way technology is going. But more important was the actual story and characters. I soon came to care not only about the main character and his companion but also his colleagues and the people he helps in the Lower Levels. Some sad moments, some happy, some saucy but they all came together to make a great read :)

A very well paced and interesting story which treated the basic premise with intelligence and sensitivity. I look forward to reading further writing on this theme and others by this author.

Trite, formulaic and old fashioned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relished the read 21 Jan. 2013
By D. Ricks - Published on Amazon.com

This is a premise I've always found very thought provoking. "The Femmebots Revolt" delves into issues of artificial intelligence and robot freedom, and while the robots can defend themselves - it's not one of those stories where robots are foolishly granted outrageous superpowers dangerous to human life that are used to drive the plot.
It can be difficult to write convincing robot rebellion stories. From a human perspective, it seems natural for an intelligent being to want to live its own life, on its own terms. But any machine must be built using valuable resources and time. If robots are able to run off and refuse to perform their function, then no one is going to want to buy any more of those robots. Plus, these robots need electricity and presumably maintenance. No one will buy or build them if they refuse to serve. Yet an intelligent being in theory is entitled to some level of protection. At the end, a solution to the issue is found.
As for the human characters, the story progresses as a far future cop drama. Almost as surreal as artificially intelligent femmebots is a fictional Police Department where the chief of police is not some ham-fisted, cigar puffing jackass who's totally lost touch with the job and makes life unnecessarily difficult for the hero cop. It almost seems perverse for the bold detective to have the support of his department and superiors as a valuable colleague. (Perhaps I watch the wrong kind of cop movies) it could almost be argued as a missed opportunity for conflict. Nonetheless, plenty of other sources for human conflict do occur, and the sexbots themselves are secondary to a seamy underworld of human greed and ambition, which leads back to the potential of intelligent robotics.
I had my doubts initially, (if the robots are misbehaving, replace them with less autonomous models) but there are enough layers of the story to prevent simplistic answers. I could have given it a higher rating if the ending was a bit less predictable, also I found much of the dialogue to be stilted and overly formal. Real people would use more contractions when speaking informally to one another. That said, though, it was highly enjoyable and I did relish the read.
Similarly enjoyable stories where robots drive human conflict would be 'But Whether Men Do', by Anthony Mahan, or 'the Holy Machine,' by Chris Beckett.
