Currently Entering Shiri’s Eyeholes
The official synopsis makes Alex + Ada
appear to be a pretty typical spec fic sausage dominated love story: boy meets android, boy falls in love with android, android achieves sentience, android falls in love with boy.
Only a few pages in I’m quite sure that’s only a part of the whole. And yes, I know that’s the definition of synopsis, hush.
There is far, far more to this story. It isn’t Weird Science or Skynet. This is something else. Something special.
A woman who goes from virtual slavery to independent agent with the help of a man who knows this may mean the demise of his ideal.
Apropos to much of the discussion on this very blog, no?
