Publisher's Summary

In the future, robots like Mars and Cromwell serve their human masters. Having long since replaced humans in the back hallways and servants' quarters of the ultra-wealthy, new models are acquired, render their service, then are quietly deactivated when obsolete. But then we gave them the ability to learn. One household is about to find out that, while Asimov's laws are immutable, humans are about to experience an uprising of a different sort. This first, surprisingly heartfelt episode of a new series puts the listener in the shoes of the the soulless who serve.

Asimov meets Animal Farm

I generally don’t buy audiobooks that are less than eight hours long. I like long books that are engrossing and will take me a while. I took a chance on this book because I like Sean and Johnny. And I love Simon Whistler.

This book is Isaac Asimov meets Animal Farm with a smidgen of Terminator in there. It’s a little slow at the beginning. But after about a half-hour I was hooked. I can’t wait for season two! I only wish there was more swearing, because hearing Simon swear with his British accent is hilarious!

But seriously, if you like your science fiction with robots, revolution and the hint of violence, you’ll love this book!

God, What an Ending

Man, this story grabs you by the balls and takes you for a ride! And the ending left me reeling for days.

Like most Platt and Truant books, this series has a slow start. But each scene, chapter, and episode puts on another layer of depth, intrigue, hilarity, drama, and emotion. Quickly, Robot Proletariat went from quaint to awesome and addictive.

By halfway through, I was hooked like nobody's business. The authors managed to relentlessly raise the stakes in new and surprising ways. Then the last couple of minutes... Oh my god was that ending crazy. Right up to the last line, this story WILL leave you wanting more.

Platt and Truant are obviously master storytellers and accomplished entertainers. I can't wait for the next season. Because after that ending, nothing will ever be the same!
