Wired (Cold Awakening #3)
It’s two months after the end of Crashed, and Lia is right back where she started: home, pretending to be the perfect daughter. But nothing’s the way it used to be. Lia has become the public face of the mechs and BioMax’s poster girl for the up-and-coming technology, devoting her life to convincing the world that she—and the others like her—deserve to exist.
But then Jude...more
I was prepared to really enjoy this book, based on my readings of past stories of androids and robots, such as Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (movie version was Bladerunner) and Bicentennial Man. However, the story got off to a slow start, not helped by the fact that this was the third book in a series, and the characters were familiar with each other and the world they lived in.
Therefore, it wasn't immediately obvious to me from the reading, although I knew from the jacket blurb, that the...more
But that's where my praise ends.

Ich gestehe, ich hätte mir zu allererst ein anderes Ende gewünscht. Dieses Ende ist eigentlich sehr realistisch, denn es kommt eben nicht jeder aus einer lebensgefährlichen Situation wieder heraus – Opfer müssen erbracht werden und so war es auch hier. Doch hat es sich die Autorin nun wirkli...more
To begin with, Lia is still home with her org family, still...more
The actual books are great. The plot, how fast the story went, and especially how much the characters changed. Characters maturing is difficult to write about because the author also has to make it believable. It is rarely done where this much growth occurs in one book and ends up well. Also, my opinions on all the c...more
To be honest I was really confused at many parts of this book because there were so man references to other things that I didn't understand making the book uninteresting. It wasn't until after I told someone about the book did I realize that Wired was a part o...more
The first half of the book was kinda boring, unfortunately. Lia is working with Biomax in a attempt to show the world that she and the mechs are people just like everybody el...more

I liked that Lia found some comfort with being allies as she said with Jude, which I must say is my favorite character especially in this book, his flaws came out more, the truth abou...more
PERFECTLY WRIITEN, NOT TOO MUCH FUTURISTOC JARGON WHERE YOU COULDN'T MAKE OUT THE WORDS, PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.
A LOT OF CONTENT, I WOULDN'T NECESSARILY CALL IT AN EASY READ, BUT MAN, DID I FLY THROUGH THE SERIES, I JUST COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN...WASN'T VER Y PRODUCTIVE FOR THAT WEEK THOUGH.
(view spoiler)[at first when Lia uploaded herself to the network, i was sooo bummed. i didn't want her to go out that way, but as i read past that one particular parag...more
The plot thickens and the characters are just as thrown as the reader. And then when you think it's going to come out a certain way, Wasserman changed everything up. The ending took everything to a new level that I didn't suspect in the slightest. Kudos for surprising me. That's unusual.
Why is it that authors insist on ending books with such crazy swift endings. Like, bam, the last five pages have to be crazy or from out of nowhere. I REALLY hate that!
It was a quick enough read with a decent pace to it, but I felt like this book was all over the map. They are all over the place too quickly, and it seems like things should develop more in each plot turn but they always seem to g...more
There are books that you remember even years after reading them. Sometimes because they were just so insanely good, or maybe they were terribly bad. This series was one of the terribly bad ones.
The problem with this series was that I loved the first two books. I would've given them 4 stars probably, if I rated them right after I read them. But that was ages ago, and I made this account quite recently so the bad taste the ending left in my memory made me give them 3 stars instead....more
We got some teary eyed moments and Lia did the only thing she could do for the cause of fighting Biomax & the Brotherhood. Quoting another sci-fi author, Scott Westerfeld, it was: "a spellbinding story about who we really are inside".
You never knew what the mechs future was until the end and Robin Wasserman's writing style really get into you heart and mak...more
