A book that is extremely difficult to put down, so much so, I read it in one go!
A thoroughly interesting story with great characters and a powerful message about the way many of us live in our modern, fast paced world.
The author has a real gift in making characters and situations believable and sets each scene superbly well.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend to all ages. As the reader, you become immersed in the story and whilst there are a number of interesting characters, it never becomes confusing and is brought to a close with real skill - pulling all strands together in an innovative way - whilst giving the reader plenty to think about.
A thought-provoking read about the dangers of modern life - corporate greed, money before love and isolation.
This is a well-written story with great characters - good and bad - and a plot, which is chilling in parts. It has life lessons and a strong moral compass, if you are willing to take note..and a twist.
The idea of AI can be scary and we all understand our reliance on machines. One robot's quest is intriguing and heartfelt in this unusual tale. Robert's story is both disturbing, as it highlights some of today's parenting, and hopeful.
A mix of messages that culminate into a warning; who among us will listen and change? Themes of love, friendship, good v evil and technology make this a greatread.
Highly recommended read for ages 7-120. Lovely and clever interwoven stories of life, love, friendship - sci-if, corporate villainy, parental deviancy, personal challenges - I loved it, and as a corporate worker (25+ years) I understand and echo the sentiment and moral learnings - which I hope my kids get to help them survive, thrive and enhance happiness in their lives. Great debut book - very fresh and contemporary.
I was given this book as a gift by a friend. I am a mum to 3 children aged 19,15 & 4. This book is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. It makes you realise as a parent how much time we and our children spend of electronic devices and how we need to spend more time together. This is a great book for young readers (11 plus) upto adults who are looking for a great thought provoking book. I could not put this book down and read within 2 days , my 19 is just beginning to read this book too.
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 Andrew Glennon and well worth a read, hopefully we can all become a little more UMA.
