Read full description of the books:
I wanted to read this book because robot love. Duh. It's all Silver Metal Lover's fault (technically the fault of Metallic Love since I read that first). Ever since, I've been on a quest for human/robot romance. Mostly I've been disappointed.
And this was kind of disappointing too. On the one hand, I didn't expect an actual love story. However, nor did I expect this book to be so freakin' political. I don't think I really needed such lengthy political and historical background to follow the story. Passages and passages of it that overwhelmed the rest of the story and made it feel unbalanced. I skimmed a lot of it.
On the other hand, what little romance there was was actually kind of decent. I would rather have had more details and FEELINGS, but then again I'm picky. I liked that Kay was ugly, but hunky, younger Halton wanted her anyway because he was attracted to her mind.
Other people might find this riveting, but I am just that uninterested in politics that I doubt I'll ever read this again. Instead I'll just continue my neverending quest for robot love.
