Charlie Friend is a lazy day trader in London who vacillates between bouts of grandiosity and worthlessness The ultimate early adopter Charlie uses a recent inheritance to buy the first truly viable manufactured human with plausible intelligence and looks believable motion and shifts of expression The robot s name is Adam which suggests what the creators must think of themselves He it is one of 25 androids sold around the world in a variety of ethnicities 12 male and 13 female versions Adam s affect may be slightly odd he doesn t blink uite right but to the casual observer he s a handsome muscular man fairly well endowed Charlie admits while hastening to add Adam was not a sex toy But sex is certainly central to this carefully constructed comedy of terrors As the novel opens Charlie is wooing Miranda a somewhat unresponsive younger woman who lives in his apartment building He hopes that they can program Adam s personality together as a kind of bonding experience He would be like our child Charlie says What we were separately would be merged in him Miranda would be drawn into the adventure We would be partners and Adam would be our joint concern our creation We would be a family There was nothing underhand in my plan I was sure to see of her We d have fun Danger Will Robinson To read the rest of this review go to The Washington Posthttpswwwwashingtonpostcomentert To watch the Totally Hip Video Book Review of Machines Like Me click herehttpswwwwashingtonpostcomvideo
