This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.
My First Completed Stephen King Novel

A masterful work of fiction
Don't be intimidated by the length of the book. Once you get started, you'll wish that it was even longer. The narrator is absolutely amazing and brings this story completely to life. On top of Gardner's rendition, Stephen King has put together a realistic account of mankind's follies. Jump in and fall in love with the characters and root for your favorites!

Not as Interesting as it Sounds

Don't waste your time with this crap book
What disappointed you about Love and Sex with Robots?
Levy significantly relies and uses psychological studies as evidence, but he is not a psychologist. And therefore does not have a credible standing to be USING such research for a ridiculous topic. (Never would I choose to read this crap, I was forced to for class.) The majority of the book is about non-existent programming and ideas that Levy has, while the other half is basically about the existing vibrators and sex toys that he thinks will contribute to "human" robots. Ridiculous jabbering from a fool! If I could give this ZERO stars, I surely would.
Would you be willing to try another one of James Adams’s performances?
James Adams's was fine. Nice to listen to, if it wasn't for the crap he was reading.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love and Sex with Robots?
