Publisher's Summary

The complete set of three short stories that set up the Sick Robot universe in which robots infected with human cancer cells become mortal, fall in love, and decide they're more than a little tired of being second-class citizens into the city they helped build.
Blending cyber and steampunk to create a retro-fusion landscape where pets are 4-D printed and people travel in tubes of compressed air, these stories will transport you into a world of surreal beauty pepped with philosophical questions about what makes us human.

Liked witnessing the robot's evolution

A robot becomes infected with cancer cells from a technician, and little by little these cells start replacing his. Being something between a robot and a human, he is used by others to infect other robots and rebel against humanity.

This was such an interesting book. Although the theme was revisited again and again in cinema and writing, it was pictured here in a different way.

I really liked the characters and witnessing the robot's evolution and his internal conflict. It felt real, and I could easily connect to him.

This book is in fact a series, composed by three short stories. The three blended almost seamelessly together, and it kept my attention from beginning to end.

Alexander Doddy’s narration was exquisite, with great character interpretations and an ample voice range. It definitely added value to the book.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Unique robot steampunk sci-fi series

The Sick Robot three book series by D.C. Lozar was entertaining and definitely unique. You see, there's a disease. A disease that makes robots deteriorate into humans. A disease that kills robots. From the initial carrier for whom the disease was named after, to the robots that realize how they had been being treated in human society and decide to do something about it, it was an entertaining ride. I chuckled at how the one human raised his trees and made his furniture so fabulous and better than anyone else. That being said, the story did lose my attention here and there after the first book. I did like how the stories were all integrated and you got to see the changes in a few of these robots throughout the three books.

Amexander Doddy did a good job with the narration. No complaints here! He does have a British accent, so if you aren't a fan of British narrations, I'd recommend probably passing on this one or at least checking out the audiobook sample before purchasing. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.
