In addition to the non-stop suspence and excitement, this book also made me cry. Mr. Bunker's research into the world of an autistic child was spot-on, and I speak from personal experiences of that world. From the heartbreak of watching a child trapped in autism to the constant, unending exhaustion of the parents - it is all there, and it is portrayed to perfection, especially the therapies used in treatment. My mind was filled with sadness and hope at the same time, as well as with questions about what makes a person human. This book will shake you to your core!
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, but I have also pre-ordered the final copy. I will be re-reading this book, probably many times, because in the excitement of the story, I did more than a little skimming, especially when I was biting my fingernails off, and I don't want to miss anything - the book is that good!
I totally agree with the reviewer who said it would make a great movie, and I hope that happens. Do not hesitate to buy this book, because I am 100% sure that you won't be disappointed.
Thank you once again, Mr. Bunker, for another fabulous read!!
Bunker's writing is amazing in the book. As an Indy author, he has grown, refined, and delivered a first class, professional level book in this one. I prefer not to read first person, present tense style writings because very few can pull it off without being tedious. Bunker can. He deserves great praises for this one!
Disclaimer: I received this as a ARC and was asked to write an honest review, which I have. I have also pre-purchased a copy to support this author.

Who is Frankenstein? We often think of him as the creation, though the creator's name in the original was Victor Frankenstein and the monster was called Frankenstein. In this story, Dr. Chris Alexander is the monster. At first. He is a self-loathing, self-debasing semi-realist. I say semi because his story begins with a modicum of faith. Whether it's faith in humanity or faith in technology, you'll have to decide. He's a fascinating character that made me want to hug him, slap him, shake him, and kiss him during his journey with Frank. Frank is an enigma. He's a child. He's Amish. He's autistic. This story is about the both of them. They take a journey together and discover something wonderful - hope. They both grow. They are both humans, despite the fact that Frank's heart and mind live in the body of a killing machine. Why does he save the terminally ill autistic boy? How does an autistic boy, with limitations based on his autism alone, come to terms with his new body (a mechanical killing machine) and an Amish mindset?
Nothing is as it seems in this roller coaster ride. It's a story of redemption. My favorite kind. It's original, thought-provoking, technologically sound and singularly clever. It will not disappoint.
As with everything Michael Bunker writes I've read, be prepared to set aside time to read it in one sitting because you will be a tad upset if you are interrupted (yes, it's one of THOSE page-turners).
Very well-thought out scenarios and fleshed out characters that leave you with wanting more of the story when you hit, "The End." Hopefully, we will see a sequel - and even a MOVIE. I grew close to the characters, Frank/Ben and Frederick/Doc and would like to read how they continue on their quest for normal lives under VERY unusual circumstances (no spoilers here!).
