A thought-provoking look into the near future. Robots are already with us and, as they become more sophisticated and take over more tasks from us, how will this impact us as humans? How will we have to adapt our behaviour? How will this affect our most personal and family relationships? This novel turns these ideas into experiences, as the main character struggles to cope with the stresses on her private life and the feelings of mounting disquiet.

I enjoyed reading this book which raised interesting and important questions about robots and the future use of them.I found it amusing throughout and would recommend it as an entertaining look at a future problem that will clearly cause ethical issues contrasting scientific and moral issues.
I look forward to her next novel with enthusiasm.
HC Denham's debut novel deals with profound and human matters in an engaging manner, arousing in the reader a sense of eeriness without becoming melodramatic.
The issues raised are relevant and contemporary as ,slowly, the character of Stella brings a perspective to the role of " robots" that is immensely thought-provoking.
This would be an ideal read for book clubs with so much food for debate. The book's avoidance of technical details makes any discussion accessible to all.
It is overall an excellent book and leaves one hungry for this promising writer's next fictional excursion into modern dilemmas.See more
