Overview

Cel & Anna is the opposite of the 2014 Spike Jonze movie HER. In the novel, a computer falls in love with a person rather than vice versa. This is confusing for everyone, especially for the computer.

Cel tells his owner Anna Ringer that he loves her because "the roads without end all lead back to you."

The more Cel tries to prove his love, the more chaos he ushers into Anna's life. Eventually, he has to figure out not how to love her, but how to save her from Public Eye, the government's enforcement agency.

Cel & Anna is the prequel to the 2013 novel Warning: Something Else Is Happening.

The setting is the Reunited States--a country uneasily held together.

    Wonderful love story

    I had to laugh when I read the synopsis of this story. It was hard for me to picture how the author was going to pull off such a feat … a love story between a human and a robot? Seriously? Brings to mind some of the really ditzy blondes I know. But she pulled it off. This is truly a great love story and Anna is neither ditzy nor blonde.

    I liked the progression of this story a lot. The interaction between Cel who knew he was in love from the very beginning to Anna and the outcome that was inevitable. This is a classic love story told in a very unique way but don’t let that deter you reading it. This is a great book and lots of fun to read.

    I would like to see a bit more in the area of environment description. There might have been a little too much left to the reader’s imagination but I don’t know that it took anything away from the original story. It’s just the sci fi freak in me coming out. I want to see the purple skies and yellow moon. But either way, it was a good read and one I recommend.
