Having said that, this is a fascinating story of a time projected far into the future when the world will become almost fully mechanized. It was interesting to see how Abrielle, a human, and Sampson, an Android, met, fell in love, and finally married. They adopted their daughter, Norrie and lived a “normal human” existence. Both Abrielle and Sampson succeeded in keeping secret the real nature of Samson from their friends, family, and even daughter, Norrie until it was necessary for Norrie to be told. Very interesting!
But this was fun. A lonely girl posts an ad on a dating site. Unlike real dating sites, she is instantly connected to a handsome, mostly perfect being. Not that I know anything about real dating sites. "Friends" tell me it never works out that way. Right away I knew I was reading fiction. Shortly thereafter the near-perfect male in the story reveals he is an android. Check! Science fiction.
The story moves along nicely. Girl meets android. Girl falls in love with android. Girl raises an adopted child with android. And the romance? Well, beyond the palest hint of intimacy there isn't much. But he, as far as any android can, loves her. And she, as far as any human girl can, loves him.
Somewhere in the middle of the story the child, a female, grows up. The story adds her point of view. By now we know the Android's destiny is approaching its logical end. The author weaves the tale convincingly. The story works.
Is it worth your time to download and read this introductory story? I believe so. Give it a try for yourself.
My usual preference is for epic stories that describe everything and everyone perhaps too much, so I occasionally found myself craving more detail, but this is an excellent read among others of its type.
