“I'm not a monster,” Evelyn said.
Then am I the monster? Because I admit I laughed a few times in shock and dismay while devouring this book—it's a beautifully written, twisted delight. I don't like to watch Black Mirror, yet this book would fit snuggly in within the Black Mirror-verse. Since the story is from Evelyn's point of view, I had the best time trying understand her decision-making process and mapping out her morality while keeping a suspicious eye on Nathan and Martine. This book was a great read from beginning to end. The characters felt well-developed and broke my heart at times. I'm favoriting this one, for sure.
This is a great book. Though on its surface it is fictional, there's a lot of philosophical questions that arise from us. What does being “human” mean? What does being alive entail and where do we draw the line? Though in essence this book has mystery and some scifi elements, the philosophical questions stood out to me at the end, which I greatly appreciate as someone who doesn't generally read books with philosophical ponderings in mind.
