Please don't hate me. I love my reads and I know how hard it is to write. So I want to love everything I read but that's not the case with this one. This is a world were lifelike robots are as commonplace as dishwashers. Great so far and I'm on board 1100%. Gary - who is one of the most naive, almost one of the stupidest characters I've ever read has the hots for his robot. His robot is interesting and intriguing and that's the problem for me. I needed way more world building. I needed to see things from the Bots POV and the ending was weak and the whole thing was rushed. I am being hard because I know MANBOT would, could & should have been the read of my year so far.
