Hunter is heavily inspired by Brazil, with a bit of Bladerunner thrown in, and even a little reminiscent of Ready Player One.This is a dialogue heavy book, with most of the plot taking place through character verbal or text interactions It works, but combine that with the inexact sci fi setting and sometimes strange slang, and it can make for some harder than necessary to follow scenes Which leads me to my only slightly than minor complaint this book needs editing Several chapters scenes could have should have been cut down a bit, and the story would have been stronger.Basically you are dropped into a world set sometime in the future, where most people have robotic appliancesand sometimes those household robots get bored with their mundane lives and go tourist , meaning begin to act as though they are thinking for themselves and no longer following their programming.You follow Aiden and Lynn, a couple who both work in tech customer service, through their day to day lives, which are sometimes exciting and sometimes very ordinary, but always entertaining I m a sucker for witty banter They are both fascinated by tourists, but still fear what self thinking robots could mean for the world Both at times enjoy their work, but are also unsatisfied by their blue collar ish roles More than anything, this book is a brief window into their lives for a few months You, the reader, pop in and then 408 pages later, pop out.It is witty and fun, and a quick read moves steadily , and the regular Harry Tuttle references are great The style and language takes some getting used to, but ultimately it drags you in and keeps you in their world The characters are fun, but most of them feel similar to each otherpossible side effect of the sarcasm and slang that I enjoyed so much flag 3

housekeeping robot hid under a piece of furniture and refused to come out When the techs finally got it out, it bit one of them with it s pinchers This really didn t endear it to the capture guys who beat it to a pulp as soon as they got the chance The techs that repair and program these little robots remind me of guys at Cal Tech, brainy, but fun The ones in this story have several underground activities forbidden by the site they work at that include Rat Races, Ape Fights and Monkey Trials all of which are for their home made robots The fact that they talk about these little robots, home made or made for consumers, as if they were children amused me The style of writing is unusual Sentences aren t complete and it takes some time to get used to that At times it is unclear which person is speaking but I didn t have a lot of trouble figuring it out.If you like si fi, robots, and lots of bantering between friends, you will enjoy this unusual book.I won this book in a giveaway and this is my honest review.P.S I hope all the robo vacuums that are being sold now don t go tourist Keep an eye on your small pets, your shoes, and your socks flag 2 likesLike see review Dec 30, 2016 Ronald

randomness much like in real life I liked the world as seen through the eyes of people already living there, but I am a sucker for near future dystopian cyberpunk like futures.One of my only complaints about the book is while it does well with world building it left me wanting to know I wanted detail about why people were so scared of Tourists But at the same time people were madly trying to develop problem solving robots But that is a minor quibble If you like a story based around appliance repairmen fighting against the rising tide of self aware robots that sometimes rampage then this story is for you I know I was not sure what to expect and was happy to find the whole thing was enjoyable It was a good book get yourself a copy and read it I feel like I am leaving something

software processes, which allows the suspension of reality required of successful science fiction Kudos to the author for this authenticity.I had some difficulty following the written dialogs, and great difficulty following dialogs of three or characters conversing On nearly every other page, I had to slow way down, and re read the dialogs to be certain who was talking, and to get the point of the words Added to that was an annoying, actually maddening, inexcusable , variance of nearly every characters nicknames Add to these difficulties millennial conversation syndrome and the effort to read approached extreme workout at times.I enjoyed how it all played out, even though I am not sure I understood each characters ending situation Office politics have always been somewhat opaque for
