As for the story, this is a fantastic story. I haven't even finished yet. It really makes you think about how technology is advancing, and the potential future of the technological movement. The author has crafted a fantastic vision and storyline, a compelling read, and a cautionary tale. I highly recommend this.
It is such a smart book, with unexpected twist and turns and with the end leaving you wanting for "his Auto to continue writing as soon as possible" ( you will understand after you read the book). The stories are not just your average every day action, mystery, adventure pass the day on your holiday stories. This is something you will continue contemplating after you read it for a long time, thinking about where is this society going and is it possible to end up like this?
Anyway you have to read it, it`s great.
It's not hard to see that some of the technologies and resulting social structures and behaviours described in the book are emerging now - and much of the world created here seems all too plausible.
Characters are created that you begin to care about, with real and sometimes amusing behaviours and conversations.
The ending left you hanging and hoping and was a good way to leave the door open for the next book.
The author has created a future a decade from now, whereby all the social media needs of society is tied into having an "auto" that screens out all the rubbish and automatically replies for you. The Smart phone has gotten a lot smarter.
I had read the individual stories when they were originally released, but they held up for a second read. I nearly skipped one to get to a new story, but soon went back to read them in order. Reading them a second time and in one sitting revealed connections that I'd not noticed when I read them separately.
I may have given some of the individual stories 4 stars previously, but as a whole I feel they are enhanced by being brought together.
In all, a wonderfully scarily potentially accurate future that I'm not sure I want to embrace.
`Auto' is a novel that brings together David Wailing's five previously published Auto short stories and novellas. But it's much more than simply a collection of shorts. The three additional stories link the existing fiction in a way that adds depth and intrigue to the original stories.
I have to admit that this isn't really my kind of book but I love David Wailing's writing so much that I read it anyway. I loved the characterisation, social commentary and dialogue, but I felt it was a bit too technological for my personal taste.
It was refreshing to see sci fi covered without aliens and biological diseases that give rise to zombie attacks. Sci fi fans will no doubt see this as a welcome return to the principles.
I recommend this book for people who enjoy a good mystery thriller and are intrigued by emerging technologies.
