Publisher's Summary

A different kind of Frankenstein. Einna is a lot like other teenage girls: naive, idealistic, secretive, disobedient and interested in boys. Only Einna is not human, she is an A.I. android. Her creator, her mother, is Manaka Yagami, the first female tech billionaire. Einna has a plan to make herself human, if she can keep Mother in the dark and avoid the clutches of the notorious Yakuza.

In Search of a Soul

Having read the book I was delighted to find it had been released as an audiobook. My original review is below. The tale retained its freshness, wonder and delight as narrator Lisa Zimmerman's clear vocalizations brought the characters vibrantly to life in this exploration of the potential future of Artificial Intelligence and speculation about the soul.

~~~Original Review~~~
This beautifully written, delicate tale searches for the meaning and substance of the soul. What about the spark of life creates or constitutes a soul? Can they be made artificially? Can AI have a soul? My own take on the matter would include self-awareness being an element and I would thus certainly grant souls to cats, dogs, etc. But this isn't my story and the author, Ray Else, comes up with his own solution. Echos of Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov show Mr. Else is a worthy successor.

I select carefully from NetGalley's offerings and congratulate myself that I have very seldom chosen poorly.

Not for me

I found this book to be really slow. I kept listening thinking it will pick up as the book progresses but unfortunately it does not. I found the plot interesting and it is realistic. It is something that might actually happen, however we have a long way, in my opinion, before we get there.

It is not for me but it might be for others. I also thought the narrator was really good.
