I can't wait to go read reviews of this book elsewhere. For some reason, this book just hit me and I really, really enjoyed it. The concept that robots can become human is so interesting to me. It could've done with less sex, but still, I don't think it ruined the book (but did make me knock it down to 4.5 stars). The message was very strong about abusive relationships and the analogy is made with a robot who doesn't have control over pleasing their man. It was a combo of an abusive relationship (emotionally) because he never physically abuses her (turning her libido up to a 10 and stuffing her in a closet is probably the worst abuse he does "physically" -- and maybe turning her off for 7 weeks.) But anyway - a combo of an emotionally abusive relationship, being used, not being up to the "male" standard, and also a trad-wife relationship. She needs to clean better. He gets angry when she puts on two pounds (AKA, the people who created her took off four pounds). He requests they take weight off her and make her boobs bigger. He's just a jackass, but not over the top either. And he has his nice moments. So much so, that at the end of the book when she finally gets her freedom from him, she walks away, and I kind of feel bad for Doug. It's clear he was mean due to his own insecurities. But I was mad that I felt bad for Doug in the end. Such conflicting emotions and feelings. And maybe I missed something, but I don't know that the book was ever clear of exactly who that guy was outside the building. It alluded to a few times possibly being one of the robots that was created off of her, so I'm assuming that's who it was. But super interesting book, very different. I listened to it on audio and I will buy it if I come across it used somewhere. I think this one will stick with me a little bit.… (mer)

2024 book #36. 2024. Annie is a very life like sex bot but one given the ability to learn. She struggles between her programming, to please her owner, and her increasing awareness of herself as her own person. Great read and the ending was entirely unexpected.

Well, I enjoyed the ride. Thank you New Scientist for pointing me here. This is just one of many AI consciousness tales and a fairly engaging one. I look forward to how Annie fares with her freedom, so I hope there will be a follow on.

You’re telling me I pushed through a drawn out documentation of how shitty a human being Doug is with his abusive relationship with Annie just for nothing to happen! I kept waiting for her to go terminator on his ass or just something interesting to happen. But nope. What a bloody letdown. Can’t believe I read a mid relationship book with a narc douchebag and submissive bot with a flaccid ending.
