STAR RATINGS GUIDE
Robots have taken over. Humans become robots, robots start acting like humans. It’s a thinker.
Oh, the humanity: The characters really drove this story, bringing hope and humour to what could have been (ahem) robotic.
The ending felt a little rushed.
Incidentally, Hugh Howey is quoted on the cover describing this book as “grim, dark, inventive”. I LOVE Howey’s books, but they are magnitudes of Armageddon grimmer and darker than this, so it struck me as interesting. Call me, Hugh. We must compare notes.
Thank you to the author for the free copy I received in return for an honest review.
