    awesome

    The book, it was so awesome. Very intelligent, this author is for making such a believable fictitious story. Love the characters and the story captivated me. It holds intrigue for what might be, what could be, but not really likely. That's okay. That's fiction. I loved it. It's fun to be scared like this when reading fiction, asking what if?

    Robot tries to save humanity.

    Andre, a robot, was the President’s interpreter but was thrown out of the situation room as they were considering nuclear war. He goes to the doctor robot Margaret and asks for a reboot. He does not have aggression protocols and feels he will not be able to save the world without them. Andre’s main goal is to save humanity but what will be the cost to him and the world with his new programming? This is an amazing journey of the development of self awareness and how a droid becomes for all intensive purposes a person. The character of Andre is amazing and the author captures the changes he goes through as he develops. You can not help but grow attached to him as he grows intellectually and emotionally. The dialogue is extremely well done capturing what is happening and highlighting the differences between him and those around him. This story also deals with prejudices humans have and how our emotions affect our judgements. This is a book that makes you think and.not only tells a story but stimulates the reader to think out the realities of the human condition. It is a great book.

    Stimulating science fiction

    Reviewed by Susan Sewell for Readers' Favorite A robot independently reaches self-awareness and notes that humankind is about to be obliterated by its greed and lust for power. It strives to save them from extinction in the science-fiction novel Andre's Reboot (Striving to Save Humanity) by Steve Coleman. Andre's creator Dr. Strauss added some extra circuitry to his programming that gave Andre a boost in processing the information he perceives around him. In doing so, Andre has an advantage over people and other robots. He can assess an intense situation without the weight of emotional baggage to reach a reasonable solution or outcome. When Dr. Strauss unexpectedly dies, Andre is taken into custody by the government. However, no one in authority wants to hear what he has to say regarding the long-range impact of their strategies. Knowing planetary death and destruction are imminent, Andre struggles to be heard, but fights opposition by those in charge. Can Andre save the humans from themselves? Or will he fail, and the world come to an untimely end? Andre's Reboot (Striving to Save Humanity) by Steve Coleman is a spectacular novel where artificial intelligence is humanity's only hope for survival. The storyline flows along at a quick pace, comprised of a compelling plotline and climactic story arc, and builds to an awe-inspiring conclusion. Elegantly written, it is a mind-boggling account of humanity's capacity for self-destruction, along with the dissolution of earth's habitats as well. The realism of the story world and the power-hungry individuals is provocative and disturbing, giving me the heebie-jeebies. A combination of the movies IRobot and Bicentennial Man, it is an eye-opening story that will entertain everyone who enjoys stimulating science fiction novels where robots and humankind match wits.
