Actual Rating: 2.5 stars.

I get why this book is liked by so many people.

Personally, I didn't connect to it or the characters. It is an interesting premise but I need stories that are preferably packed with drama, conflicts and emotions.
The issues explored here, the ethics and morals of what makes a human, are interesting, but too light. These topics are reflected in a superficial way, that although might be ideal for teenagers, it left me wanting, incomplete. I would have enjoyed the story more with a deeper examination and discernment of these hypothesis. After all, the robot/human postulate is not a new idea, and we have seen plenty of theories and interpretations with much deliberation and greater argumentation.

To conclude, I'll just surmise it by saying that although Jenna's reflections have potential, the final feeling of the story is insufficient if you are an adult reader, so to properly enjoy it it would be best to be a young reader.

P.S.: The audiobook narrator is very good.
