If Commander Data is your favorite ST:TNG character, you'll love this

A relatively short and simple story with lots of pop sci-fi references and insider techie jokes. Are the characters well developed with a deep history? Not so much -- this is, after all, a short story. It is, however, a story I just couldn't stop reading, even well into the early hours of the morning. That's my benchmark for a good read.

"Mike's life was crap"... and so was the story about him.

I was compelled to drop this story within the first page, but I figured that it was only 100 pages, so I could tough it out and see if it got better. It didn't. The whole story felt like a 40-something, sci-fi nerd's wet dream and the author could benefit from being more adventurous and explore the concepts of a larger vocabulary and longer, more complex sentences. Mike was a detestible, pig of a character, and I often felt pity for his deceased wife for ever having married him. I found the rampant use of brand names and pop-culture references incredibly annoying, as were the random made up brand names such as "vueTee". Also, the economics in the story did not seem realistic to me - Mike balked at spending $2000 on a robot (which seems extremely cheap to me considering the full range of functionality available) but had no problem spending $150 at Wal-Mart for two dresses, a package of underpants, and a candy bar, or later funding thousand-dollar shopping spree for his robot. I found the politics in the story boring and held no value towards the overall worth of the story as I had no idea who these people were nor what relationship they had to anything in the story, so I often skipped those paragraphs. Had the author actually used more descriptive words instead of writing the story like an itinerary, and had there actually been more of a plot, I might have enjoyed it. The one and only thing that I did find rewarding in the experience was how the robot girlfriend started to transform Mike into a better person. By the end of the story, I still thought he was a shallow idiot, but I hated him less, all thanks to his robot girlfriend.

    I wonder?

    I have read many books about robots but none such as this. A very well written book and a wonderful story. I wonder if robots like thisare in our future?

    Intriguing examination of robot relationship

    Hard to put down, explores various issues without being preachy.

    Some sex, but nothing graphic.

    Good, Relaxing, Awesome read

    I set out to read a book and i found one i could add to my favorites. I love the character Mike and the way Patience brings him back to himself is awesome. She is a true wonder throughout the book and i love her robotic ways. This is a wonderful relaxing adventure. :-)

    Amazing read

    I haven't completed this book quite yetm but it's an amazingly great read. So great that I had to give my review a bit early. My only wish is for a third installment in the series. I want more stories like this.
