Well this is why you need to read Reboot - unique and exciting story about people who die and “reboot” becoming robots who are forced to work HARC – Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation.
The longer you are dead, the less human emotion you have in you, and more efficient you are as a reboot. Wren has been dead for 178 minutes – longest anyone stayed dead. Because of that she holds a higher rank in HARC and besides going out to the most dangerous missions, she also trains highest numbers. But when she sees Collum, she is not sure what to do – he is 22. After getting to know him, they start to have some emotions between them and they decide to escape.
This was such a unique story, I loved it!! First I wasn’t sure what to think of it because Wren seemed like a complete robot – a badass robot, but nothing the less. And Collum was way too annoying to me. He was too happy, too chattery, and he always smiled – ALWAYS!! But surprisingly, him and Wren actually worked perfect together. I could not have imagined a better person to be with Wren and help with the escape throughout the whole story.
I loved the world-building. It was your typical after-end-with-sickness-and-poverty situation but because it came from robots POV, it was all new to me. There are not a lot of books that come out as new because so many things have been written about but this was it. Can’t wait to get my hands on the second book and see what happens next!
