Set in Seattle sometime in the not-too-distant future. There are flying cars as well as regular cars, robots and androids have become commonplace and marijuana is legal. But some things haven’t changed … such as the desires and expectations of family.
Brad’s family is no exception. His has always been a medical family and Brad has been groomed since childhood to become a doctor. What Brad’s parents don’t know is that he has no intention of following the life-path they have designed for him.
Attending college, he is taking all the requisite medical classes, but Brad’s favorites class is an elective – Robotics. When each member of the class is given a basic android kit and told that they are each to create their own android, Brad is thrilled. Being assigned to create his own android is his dream come true. He has many ideas and innovations that he is eager to try. He wants to create an android that is indistinguishable from humans and one that is self-aware and who can think for herself.
The project becomes an obsession and he desperately wants his android (whom he named Trisha) to have human looking (and feeling) skin. But that type of upgrade is expensive and Brad needs to figure out a way to get the money he needs.
His only option is to look for the “skin” in the criminal underworld. It is there that he is offered a deal seems too good to be true.
Remember the old adage that states “If something seems to good to be true, it probably is.” But, will this be true for Brad? Or will he and his android prove to be the exception?
This book grabbed my interest right from the start. The idea of creating self-aware androids is not a new idea. In fact, it is a plot line in many movies and books. Because of this I expected a predictable storyline, but thankfully my suspicions were completely unfounded.
This audiobook takes the listener on a roller coaster ride with lots of twists, turns, dips and even some blind corners.
The narrator, Jack Nolan’s voice is the perfect blend of raw and sophisticated. He is easily understood which is essential to a positive listening experience. He never rushes the story and his pacing is ‘spot-on’. I rate the narration as 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The story was interesting and the many twists mean that the listeners attention never wavers. I enjoyed this audiobook and I look forward to reading other titles by Greg Dragon.
Overall I rate this audiobook as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
