Science Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

With a wonderful machine-like quality to her voice, Hillary Huber reads the futuristic story of Alpha, a robot who is struggling to escape her programming and be more human. Dealing with a writing style that is as science-oriented as it is character-driven, Huber transforms Alpha from a merciless warrior intent on following orders into a compassionate woman searching for love. The rest of the characters are just as believable, whether human or android. The listener will be caught up in the struggle over whether machines that are outwardly indistinguishable from humans deserve the same rights as their human counterparts. Fans of authors such as Isaac Asimov will enjoy Asaro’s ability to create authentic characters. R.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
