    Sci Fi is not my read, nor is YA, really, so I wasn t expecting much when I read the first page Which is all it took, the first few pages, in order to suck me right in and keep me glancing at the book even when I was supposed to be sleeping or doing something else.This is a story about a girl who inadvertently falls for a really nice guy who happens to share the same passion as she does the violin The musical nuances added another dimension to the already rich descriptions and emotions runnin Sci Fi is not my read, nor is YA, really, so I wasn t expecting much when I read the first page Which is all it took, the first few pages, in order to suck me right in and keep me glancing at the book even when I was supposed to be sleeping or doing something else.This is a story about a girl who inadvertently falls for a really nice guy who happens to share the same passion as she does the violin The musical nuances added another dimension to the already rich descriptions and emotions running freely through these pages This is a complete story, the issues are resolved in a most satisfying way with a few regrettable losses along the way I cared very much about Tyri and her indecision on which side of the fence she wanted to stand Quinn was adorable in his push to attain the most humanity he could possibly stuff into his storage drive.With the feels captured from I, Robot and A.I I found myself a willing passenger on this trip in the Scandinavian future The terms were foreign, but not so much I felt I needed a companion volume to explain what I was reading about I recommend this for everyone, young adult to adult alike, I feel that many readers can pull significance and comparison to our civil rights issues plaguing our human population in present day Read the preview See if it sucks you in, too

    I ve had my eye on this book for a long time, and I was thrilled to get an advanced copy I Heart Robot is a YA Sci Fi set in a future where robots are common, though not considered to have the same level of personhood as humans The story switches between two perspectives Tyri, an aspiring musician, and Quinn, a droid who wants to prove he s just as human as his creators The characterisation is superb, and I sympathised with both Tyri and Quinn They come from opposing worlds, yet their share I ve had my eye on this book for a long time, and I was thrilled to get an advanced copy I Heart Robot is a YA Sci Fi set in a future where robots are common, though not considered to have the same level of personhood as humans The story switches between two perspectives Tyri, an aspiring musician, and Quinn, a droid who wants to prove he s just as human as his creators The characterisation is superb, and I sympathised with both Tyri and Quinn They come from opposing worlds, yet their shared love of music just leaps off the pages.The sci fi element is well developed without getting too technical and distracting from the story I loved all the cool details, like the way Quinn deliberately gives himself human emotions while his fellow robots believe violence is the only solution to the way humans treat them The growing tensions between humans and robots grows throughout the novel, developing alongside Tyri s and Quinn s stories I was hooked from beginning to end, and I d thoroughly recommend this to sci fi fans

    Suzanne van Rooyen can always be relied upon to craft a tale that is refreshingly unique, quirky, edgy, and manages to tug at your heartstrings without ever being cheesy While Tyri with her inconsistent characters and constantly vacillating opinions on every fucking thing got on my nerves a bit, I very much enjoyed this story and found it hard to put down.

    I don t usually write reviews but I enjoyed this book so I ll make an exception.First of all the plot twist if you can even call it that was very predictable Like seriously super obvious the moment Tyri said she didn t have a dad I already knew what was up Tyri as a character was okay I didn t really feel anytype of way about her she was just the main female character because I guess the writer felt there needed to be one.Quinn was muchintresting, his backstory was depressing, and his st I don t usually write reviews but I enjoyed this book so I ll make an exception.First of all the plot twist if you can even call it that was very predictable Like seriously super obvious the moment Tyri said she didn t have a dad I already knew what was up Tyri as a character was okay I didn t really feel anytype of way about her she was just the main female character because I guess the writer felt there needed to be one.Quinn was muchintresting, his backstory was depressing, and his struggle and want for humanity made him very compelling.Now I have to say I don t buy Quinn and Tyri as a couple I felt Quinn s attraction towards her was somewhat forced mostly due to his programming Frankly I feel they should have just been friends I honestly thought Quinn and his Brobot Bestfriend Enemy on Occasion Kit would have been a better pairing I mean Kit treats him like a boyfriend They did have a kiss and they always find someway to keep meeting eachother so maybe Kit waslike a somewhat manipulative, emotionally abusive husband While they had a very complicated relationship to say the least I just feltconnection with those 2 then Quinn and Tyri but what ev s.All in all I enjoyed this read I felt this book could get a sequel just to wrap up a few loose ends It was fun and had wayaction then I anticipated so yeah a solid 4.5 stars
