People may laugh at the analogy but those that read and understand the meaning/message from AndrewGlennon's short story will understand! Watching your team score the winning goal in a cup final on a black & white TV is just as uplifting & and joyous as watching in 65" HD colour and reading this book transported me back to reading The Lotus Eater as a teenager and all the important non materialistic ways life should be lived and enjoyed.These things we learn to forget with age and performance driven measurements of modern life & work - Thanks for reminding me there are more important things in life than materliasm, consumption, 'employee benefits' and achieving 'performance % targets'
This book is a must read for teenagers and adults. The book is excellent, written and thought out to perfection. The story will make a lot of people think as well as read, once you start reading the book you won't want to put it down. Also brilliant illustration by Matt Dixon, I strongly recommend anyone to buy this book for themselves or as a present it is brilliant. I will be looking forward to when Andrew's next book comes out, I will definitely be buying it five stars would be an understatement, I could see this book making a brilliant film.
The Loneliest Robot is a beautifully written book. My 9 year old son, who is generally a reluctant reader, loved this story and is hoping there will be a sequel soon. Its an exciting, thought provoking story, suitable for all the family. Well done AndrewGlennon for writing such a wonderful, imaginative book.
A thought provoking book that will leave you reflecting on your own lifestyle. Captures current society brilliantly and all us technology dependant humanoids. Everyone will relate to the characters. This is a great first book by AndrewGlennon and well worth a read, hopefully we can all become a little more UMA.
