    Worth a read for a different take on the androids

    Interesting take on the robot genre. There was a good use of unreliable narrator, which lead to wondering just how much of the tale was even true. I felt the social and legal context was unbelievable in this era of breaking down almost every taboo against sex. The weaknesses are we never really get a sense of who the main protagonist really is as a person as his personality and biology was under constant shift as much as the robot's mind and body was. I'm sure that was a deliberate theme, but it doesn't leave me wanting to learn more about him in book 2 since he was mostly unlikeable throughout the book. Similarly the robot has very little true agency to make her interesting enough past this book, and most of her problem solving relies purely on the financial generosity of a tertiary character.

    Very interesting listen

    There were plenty of twists to this story, and I did not want to stop listening. Brad is lonely and makes an android. Tricia is so real, others cannot tell that she is not human. The emotional ups and downs, and the wondering which way will it go kept my attention. I felt sorry for both Tricia and Brad as the story played out, and the ending caught me off guard. I really liked this story. I received a gift of this audiobook, and this is my unsolicited review.

    rewired

    interesting topic. a problem to be faced in the not to distant future. this novel dragged at tim and at other times took a skewed look at a society in the throes of reorganizing and re-establishing its rules

    Re-Wired

    A maginal read at best. The author obviously and rather clumsily attempts to use the development of human-android sexual relations as a platform for advocating an ultra-liberal agenda for freedom of choice and, the vilification of religion. The basic story about human loneliness as a powerful and potentially self and other destructive force could have worked if not for the author's stummbling attempt at redefining human morality.
