Review

Praise for The Wrong Unit
 
"A really fun read!" - Cat Rambo, author of Beasts of Tabat 
 
"Rob Dircks manages to bridge the tricky divide between science-fiction and humor so effortlessly that a comparison to Vonnegut is not a hyperbolic stretch.- Ruth Sinanian, Literature Reviewer  
 
Amazon Reader Reviews:
"★★★★★ The Wrong Unit is the right story for today... it reacquaints us with our human ingenuity and shortcomings, our deepest longings, and, most notably, our great capacity to love."
 
"★★★★★ LOVED this future tale of technology run amok, relationships, and challenging the definition of "human." This book really hit home as the definition of "father", "family" and "love" really has you thinking. Don't want to give too much away, but it's a great read and would suggest it to anyone looking for a solid scifi tale with a real story and characters you care about."
 
"★★★★★ FUNNY. HUMAN. A GREAT RIDE! The Wrong Unit is a fun and twist-turning journey that keeps you on the edge of your seat."
 
"★★★★★ I'm such a fan of this book that I'm going to recommend it for next month's Book Club pick!"
 
"★★★★★ OUTSTANDING!! With The Wrong Unit, Rob Dircks has established himself with this potentially prophetic view into humanity's future and the consequences of our growing reliability on and appetite for technology."
 
"★★★★★ The Wrong Unit is such a great ride!! The pace is fast, the dialogue is smart and sarcastic and witty. The sci-fi world created by Dircks is new, imaginative, and so original. No easy feat! I loved the main characters Heyoo and Wah. Laugh out loud funny and sure, I'll admit, I got a little weepy at some spots. Highly recommended!"

About the Author

Rob Dircks is the Audible bestselling author of Where the Hell is Tesla? and The Wrong Unit, and a member of SFWA (Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America). His prior work includes the anti-self-help book Unleash the Sloth! 75 Ways to Reach Your Maximum Potential By Doing Less, and a drawerful of screenplays and short stories. Some of these sci-fi short stories appear on his original audio short story podcast Listen To The Signal, also narrated by the author. 

Rob's a big fan of classic science fiction, and conspiracy theories (not to believe in them, just for entertainment.) When not writing, he's helping other authors publish their own work with Goldfinch Publishing, writing and designing for the award-winning ad agency he owns with his brother (appropriately called Dircks Associates), and generally doing what he calls "sampling": video production, audio production, app development, photography, guitar, reading, cooking. (Note the absence of the phrases "going to the gym" and "running iron-man triathalons.") He lives in New York with his wife and two kids. You can get in touch at robdircks.com.
