Poor Carl. He's just a a nice guy who loves his family; but his world shatters and he suffers a downward spiral of nightmarish experiences all at the whim of an emotionless A.I.
The book is dark and scary, but then, it is dystopian. Try adding some laughter into THAT genre sometime, not gonna happen. This isn't a Terminator style book either, if there was ever a man vs machine clash it is long over before the story begins. This is completely understandable too, as a giant intelligence would become "bored" and begin experimenting on whatever was nearby. Unfortunately, humanity is what was at hand during this momen of boredom.
This tale hits pretty close to reality, as it is completely plausible and could happen one day. The story is thought provoking and frightning. Do we think for ourselves? Are we ever in control? Do we really know what happiness is, and have we ever actually experienced it? With the kind of control Carl experiences we may never get answers.
The narrator does a fine job, keeping the pace set perfectly, and conveying the tenseness in each moment.
Read this tale, and keep an eye on your computer.

Dylan Callens brings up some fantasies that truly could be a reality if cloning were legal. Manipulating minds, creating beings, and rebooting the human brain to see a completely different world then the stark reality are just the beginning.
Carl has a great life and a great son. He has no idea that anything is or could be different. Until he goes for his yearly test, and starts to question everything in his life. Things start to unravel as he seeks more answers and find a more truths.
This story truly is a fanicinating look at a world that has gone completely digital. A world that we could be heading towards with all our dependence on electronics. would it happen, probably not, but this story truly makes you think about it.
Ulka Mohanty is superb in her narration. She has a voice that is easy to listen to. She was able to distinguish each character and bring them to life. Her narration truly added to the whole story experience.
