A really good read.

This book is very thought provoking. Like the best ‘futuristic’ novels it starts from very close to where we are now and explores the implications of using robots to help us with our lives. It raises all sorts of issues about personal relationships. I found it a gripping read and will definitely recommend it to my book club as there is so much I want to discuss after reading it.

Too useful and compelling to dismiss. The descriptions of the settings were particularly evocative, Africa just as much as the familiar London streets. This is a novel impossible to put down.

As the relationships between humans and humanoid robots are revealed there are several unexpected developments, which the writer cleverly leaves for the reader's own interpretation. The differences between the male and female expectations of and reaction to the robots is also fascinating, as is the fact that it is Stella, the most dubious and reluctant, who chooses to employ one in the second part of … See more
