Cel and Anna is a delightful science fiction novel. The premise is George Orwell-esque from his novel 1984 where "big brother" is watching everything you do - without the overwhelming darkness.
The synopsis tells you everything you need to know about this book. It starts off a little slow for me, but the pace picks up and then continues at a good clip. The concept of a computer falling in love with a woman is pretty unique; thus, enjoyable to read about.
The characters were well-written, even Cel, the computer! I found the most change in Anna as the story began, she was rather shy and didn't interact with live people very much. Through the story she grew and changed until she was very comfortable around people and capable of making friends.
Cel and Anna is a breath of fresh air in the science fiction genre. It flows smoothly and reads fairly quickly. It's definitely worth your time!

CEL & ANNA is the most original book I've read in a long time. It's the story of a personal computer who gains consciousness and falls in love with its owner, only to cause a massive disruption in the universe. Part fantasy, part love story, part adventure, this touching novel is less about Cel, the computer, than about his human owner's awakening to real and lasting love. After a lifetime of loneliness Anna Ringer finally learns to trust the one person who can "save" her (in every sense of the phrase). He's a geeky computer whiz named Taz Night, an improbable but resourceful hero. I've read Lindsay Edmunds' blog, Writer's Rest, at Wordpress and her delightful articles on the Huffington Post. Edmunds is a brilliant wordsmith and a keen observer of the human condition, and I heartily recommend her first novel. It kept me entertained from the first page to the last--with many heart-stopping moments in between.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
