I was provided a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review.
Re-Wired by Greg Dragon-I’m just going to cut to the chase… Brad irritated me so much. I really wanted to like him, and at first I thought that I might be able to, but he was just so whiney. Brad is a college student that creates an android for his own personal use at a time where androids were commonplace to have in your home serving your meals, cleaning your things, driving your taxis… but to love and care for?

Re-Wired tells the story of a lonely, disillusioned young man who tries to set right the wrongs in his life by creating the perfect android woman. Of course, things don’t go as planned and Brad must face reality and the consequences of his actions.

The idea and accompanying social commentary (human beings’ relationship to technology, mistrust of robots/androids/AI) are not new as we’ve seen them before in other stories, TV shows, and movies. I won’t go into a discussion on those issues, but I wi

This is insane. And I mean that in a HOLY MIND FUCK THIS IS AMAZING sort of way. This novel will have you glued to it's pages from start to finish. Greg Dragon has created a unique, science fiction master piece that will confuse the hell out of you! The author uses a mix of robotics, romance, addiction, and those wonderful negative family relationships we all know and love to craft an original story you won't see coming. It starts off with the main nerd, Brad. He's a genius in his own rig

I’m an avid sci-fi fan. One of the things I like the most about sci-fi, is that it has the ability to tackle modern-day issues, but disguise them under the guise of aliens or other non-humans. Star Trek did this frequently from TOS through Voyager.

What I like best about Re-Wired, is that it takes themes of discrimination and frames it under the guise of androids. There is also the added warning of changing yourself to make someone else happy. Those themes are conveyed nicely without being preach

I thought this was a very interesting book. When the college student events a woman robot then meets a real woman and falls in love. Then the real woman disappears and his robot has learned to function on her own. This book turns in to a who done it.

Interesting concept but not a very good story. The author is onto a subject which is going to be on everyone's minds in the future - what do we do about robots becoming more human? This book describes the results if we proceed down one of those possible future paths. I feel like the story could have been a lot more interesting and/or entertaining than it turned out to be. None of the characters (human, android, or imaginary) were likeable or interesting. The story became muddled and disjointed a ...more

Greg Dragon has created a new world in Re-Wired that is totally different and believable. This is a world that we could find ourselves living in if the brilliant minds of today become focused on turning robots into undetectable androids. Some say we are already started on that path.

Brad is a lonely geek who has never had a date and gets tongue tied when a woman is near. He is in college, supported by his parents who expect him to become a doctor like his father. Brad has other plans. He

I happened to glance at another reviewer's opinions about this book, which stated something along the lines of the main character being difficult to like. I have to agree with this opinion. At first I felt bad for him, but as the story went on, I just grew to despise him more and more. However, it's when he is at

"Re-wired" is a dystopian novel about an android with feelings. Brad Bradley creates his personal android and names her Tricia. He agrees to become a guinea pig for an experimental drug in exchange for the perfect skin for Tricia, meddles with her memory and controls and she ends up as perfect female-like android with feelings. Then Brad begins to attract girls like a magnet, falls for a real girl Priscilla, then begins to los

Enjoyed the book!

Sci Fi or Fantasy......couldn't decide which. Neither are my favorite genres, but this was very well written & it kept my attention up to the end. Blame it on my lack of powers of observation, but I didn't realize right away that this was supposedly taking place in the future. The irony is, that in this ever evolving world of technology, I could see all this coming to pass as normal in our future world. It would be amazing & at the same time, very scary. It may be sooner than we

This pseudo-Pygmalion book was intriguing but the writing drifted off in the middle. The epilogue was unnecessary and detracted from my enjoyment of the rest of the story.

There were plenty of twists to this story, and I did not want to stop listening. Brad is lonely and makes an android. Tricia is so real, others cannot tell that she is not human. The emotional ups and downs, and the wondering which way will it go kept my attention. I felt sorry for both Tricia and Brad as the story played out, and the ending caught me off guard. I really liked this story.

I received a gift of this audiobook, and this is my unsolicited review.

Wired Female

Interesting account of sentient female android wanting to be human(why)???. It tries to become a philosophical treatise on the potential difficulties of technology and man android love.

Endless regurgitated drivel

This book is plotless, with no actual story and nothing being solved. The same story loop is recycled throughout. No character development, no actual resolution. It was a complete waste of time reading it and also money wasted.

This is my second book by Greg Dragon and I can say without a doubt I'm definitely a fan of his work! My first book was Single Wired Female which is actually book 2 of Re-wired. Both books are fine as a stand alone book. I love a good artificial intelligence story! This one is kind of a sad love story. Great book and I highly recommend it!

A good read for those interested in the future of AI

This is not about the nuts and bolts of AI. This Is, about how society reacts to robots that get smarter and smarter.

Fun to see a new glimpse into the future. The twist was unexpected and believable. The next book should be interesting.

I enjoyed the book, although it seems like it wasn't finished. There was one point that the story line was slow, but picked up after a few pages. Maybe book two will continue to complete the story.

I really liked this book. I liked it a lot actually! I love these types of stories, about AI/human relationships. I felt sorry for Brad, the main character... or was it Tricia, the android he created? I actually felt sorry for them both.

This book started off as one thing and then ended up as something totally different. At first I thought "Okay, it's written in a rather immature voice, this Brad guy's a bit shallow but somewhat likeable... the story's rather predictable, and oh look, there's Bra

Re-Wired wasn't quite the book I thought it would be. I was expecting a thriller about a killer robot. Rather, it was an intimate character-driven story about a teenage boy, and how the creation of a unique artificial intelligence changes his world. This doesn't it was a lesser book, just a different book.

There is a lot going on behind the scenes in this story. The book concluded with a bit of a twist ending, which made you look back on the story with new eyes. Brad is a likable-enough protagoni
I like sci-fi, and I was interested in listening to this relatively short novel about a boy who builds an android that takes on a life and personality of its own. I thought the story was going to be very straightforward by how it started out, but it surprised me in a positive way with a twisting and interesting story line that blurred the lines of madness and reality. And what I thought were convenient and negligent jumps and blank spaces in the story turned out to be essential to telling the st ...more

And whats your dream girl going to be like?

Its every boys fantasy, to have the girl of your very dreams, the one that starts out with all the 'kinda right with a little it wrong', hot and spicy and a bit saucy, but mustn't forget all the right curves in all the right places and a brain to do what's needed (Wink - Wink, if you know what I mean)!
Yet we fail to realize the frailty of a normal human being, who must compete in the normal world without having all the 'just right parts, in all the jus

I enjoy a good sci-fi story. The pace on this one I felt was slower than typical sci-fi work. It reads more like an uneven coming of age book for Tricia. I am not entirely sure who the author intended to be the main character. I was more intrigued by Tricia and her growth than by Brad Barkley’s (the inventor) actions.
Brad would say “I’m going to do ABC,” or “XYZ is important to me,” or “I won’t do LMN.” Yet pages later he would quit what he professed to prize or did what he said he would not. I
What an odd book. I literally just finished this and I'm not entirely sure how I felt about it. It had a definite 'gollum' type story to it (not LOTR but the legend of clay people brought to life). I'm not sure if it's a re-telling or not.

I think part of the reason I can't decide how I feel about the actual story is because of the narration. It felt like the narrator was reading the sentences for the first time, causing odd breaks where there shouldn't be, statements read as questions and vice v
