Publisher's summary

A hundred years after the world is decimated by nuclear wars, humanity has been reduced to a surviving city of people called Mainlanders. They have food, water, and a wall that separates them from their enemies - the Outlanders.

Branded as savages, the Outlanders have grown in number and their attacks against the city have become more brutal. Increasingly, they threaten to overtake the city, bringing with them the doom and destruction that has plagued mankind for over a century. What the Mainlanders need is a weapon.

Des is the first robot created with a full range of human emotions. His reasoning skills and thought processes will make it so no human will ever have to step foot on the battlefield again. But when Des realizes his true purpose - to help destroy the Outlanders - he suspects that the real enemies might not be the people he was built to destroy, but those who created him.

Couldn't put it down...

Prototype D was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting much, but boy was I wrong. This is a thoughtful entertaining story that struggles with the age old question of what defines life in a fast paced and exciting story. Balancing the idea of artificial intellegence, emotions and true soul, it delivers thought provoking yet light hearted adventure and characters with complex personalities and motives.

Once I started listening, I couldn't put it down. The relationship between the characters, especially Hazel, DES and ESROY keeps you guessing as the story evolves.

The narrator does a good job of defining the individuals perspectives and motivations.

My only minor criticism is that I found myself wishing I had more information about the history of certain situations. In most cases the background is delivered as the story progresses and is satisfying, however I think the book could have benefitted from developing the back story a little sooner and in more detail in regard to the "outlanders". That being said, it did leave room for several new ideas to develop and I am looking forward to future books from this author to flesh out those remaining histories. I can't wait to listen to another book by Jason D. Morrow.

Some difficulties connecting, but am a fan of Des

SERIES INFO: This is Book #1 of a series that, according to the author, will have 4 books in total. The ebook of Book #2, Prototype Exodus, was recently released and the audio should be available in April.

I am sad to say that this book never rose above average for me, due to the difficulties I had connecting with the majority of the characters and with the plot. However, I really liked Des and am looking forward to reading his further adventures.

Character comments: Hazel (Des’ inventor) - Her neglect of her father and treatment of Esroy made her hard to like. / Esroy (A.I.) - I couldn’t help feeling sorry for him. / Gizmo (the Pollyanna style companion robot) - he would probably drive me nuts if he were mine, but he was fun to read about.

The beginning was great. I loved Des right away and felt like the opening chapter presented his situations clearly and sympathetically. He was the true heart of the story. I also liked his interactions with Ha
