Is this merely a repeat of "Silver Metal Lover" (Tanith Lee)?

Nicole I have heard it compared to that book, however, I have never read it myself. So despite the fact that I am the author of Blue Hearts, I can't answer that. Stories about the "other" and forbidden love go back further than Shakespeare and definitely aren't unique to these two books. Blue Hearts itself deals with more than just the romance (many have faulted it for not having a long, drawn out romantic plot) and focuses on the civil rights aspect of what happens with the androids. I'm not sure how that compares to Silver Metal Lover.

Hope it's OK that I answered this.
