This is a science fiction book that asks the question "If you could build your perfect mate, what would she be like?" This is something that all people have fantasized about at one time or another, being able to find that perfect person to share your life with. In the future, this is possible and the way it is step by step described makes it seem as if it could very well be possible years down the road. While this is a sci-fi book, it is also a love story and an adventure story. I would recommend this book to both science-fiction fans and fiction fans in general.

Jeff Fuell writes a story of a man, Steven Adams, looking for love…the love of his life. While meeting with a friend he learns of a revolutionary concept, a doctor paving the way to a new reality through technological advances. After meeting with the doctor he is finally able to meet the woman that could change his life forever, a woman created specifically for him…the “perfect woman.” As time goes on, Steven finds out that there is a lot more to the package deal then what he originally thought he had paid for. He also learns that there was a great deal of information that was not included in the small print of his contract. Wondering what in the world I am talking about? You’ll have to pick up a copy of The Perfect Woman to find out!
The Perfect Woman is a sci-fi romance with a great deal of action and adventure. Fuell masterfully weaves in elements of fiction, fantasy, and futuristic technology. This is a quick read that focuses on aspects of a potential future that I fear may become a reality, of sorts, in one way or another. Looking at artificial intelligence, the concept really isn’t that farfetched. I totally admit that as I was reading I kept trying to figure out who I would model my “perfect man” after? George Clooney, Brad Pitt (the Troy version), Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Kellan Lutz…yeah, the list is endless!
I really enjoyed Fuell’s novel. However, I will note that when I first started reading I was a little miffed about the direction that the book seemed to be taking. The main character, Steven Adams, came off as more than just a little shallow. BUT, as I continued reading sadly, I began to understand where he was coming from and why he made the choices that he did. Fuell paints a vivid picture of cause and effect which makes the idea of meeting a mate scientifically designed specifically for you a little easier to swallow.
I enjoyed all of the characters, especially Steven’s mate, Denise. I loved watching her learn and grow as every moment, no matter how trivial, was a major life experience that brought a smile to her face. Her curiosity about Steven’s life from childhood to present was intriguing and made me wonder what all was going through her mind. Thanks to Fuell’s descriptions throughout the book it was as though I was sitting back watching a movie instead of reading a book. I could hear Denise’s voice, see her move, and picture every “scene.” I can easily see this novel being turned into a sci-fi movie, unfortunately, the cast of characters would not meet the description of those in the book as currently there is no way to turn back time. ( Note: I’m sure this last sentence doesn’t completely make sense… you’ll have to read the book to see what I’m talking about. :) )

Jeff Fuell writes an interesting fantasy tale about The PERFECT WOMAN..And the only way one can find one is to create her. The premise is not new but the story line IS original. I actually sat down to read this and just couldn't put it down, I haven't done that since Brown's Angels and Demons and DiVinci Code books. I really enjoyed all the references to my college days in the 80's and the smattering of humor through the story (life IS funny)I have a friend who is not much into reading but when I was explaining the plot they told me to stop! and hand them the book.
I highly recommend The Perfect Woman, and I look forward to reading all of Mr Fuell's books. Next is ACROSS TIME, but I think I will wait until morning to start, I don't want to lose another night of sleep reading.
