"Robobro" is an entertaining, sci-fi comedy adventure, featuring four young, broke L.A. dudes, the urban hip generation, who accidentally find a very unusual abandoned CIA project in a junkyard - a talking, half human robot. When they bring it home and power it up, they soon discover they have a half black "bro," half robot on their hands with an outrageous, sarcastic personality, a fact they learn right quick.
Robobro first words: "Damn! . . . I'm trapped in a garage with four busted homies, direct descendants of Moe, Larry, and Curly, Stupids one, two three and four."
Robobro, minutes later: . . . "Planet earth to broke dudes. It takes technology to fix me. And cash! Like I suppose you're all graduates of Van Nuys Body and Fender 'U'. (singing) 'Hey, hey, body and fender! Gi' me some bondo and I'll make you a fender!' . . . "Flash! I need high tech geeks. Do any of you know what a printed circuit board is? A transistor? A diode? Can any of you spell volt?"
That's Robobro. When they finally repair him and update all of his electronics, they discover he has unique powers for urban combat, which the boys employ to rid dangerous gangs from one of L.A's most crime ridden neighborhoods. Ultimately, they do achieve their dream of owning the best custom car shop in all L.A. Last point: Although Robobro can bend metal in his bare hands, he is terribly frightened of spiders and alley rats, and one special lady who carries the story to a novel, unpredictable end. He's a character, all right.
"Robobro" is written in a dialogue style for easy, enjoyable reading.
