A short story of artificial intelligence and love


image001 RESTORE (Stories of Singularity #1)

What if the three laws of robotics were replaced by a single emotion: unconditional love. Restorative Human Medical Care Unit 7435, sentience level fifty, wants to heal the human master it loves, but Unit 7435 finds there is a price to be paid for love… and for failing in its primary mission.

Restore is the first in a collection of short SF novellas (Stories of Singularity) that will accompany Susan Kaye Quinn’s Singularity novel series. There are six planned novels (young adult SF) in the series, plus a prequel novel Day Zero (adult SF).

The first novel, The Legacy Human (Singularity #1), is now available.

Susan Kaye Quinn grew up in California, where she wrote snippets of stories and passed them to her friends during class. Her teachers pretended not to notice and only confiscated her stories a couple times. Susan left writing behind to pursue a bunch of engineering degrees, but she was drawn back to writing by an irresistible urge to share her stories with her niece, her kids, and all the wonderful friends she’s met along the way. She doesn’t have to sneak her notes anymore, which is too bad.

Susan writes from the Chicago suburbs with her three boys, two cats, and one husband. Which, it turns out, is exactly as a much as she can handle.

OKAY. THIS BOOK IS SCANDALOUS. DON’T FIGHT ME ON THIS.

I’m going to go ahead and say this: I have never read a book that is in a point of view of a robot.

And this robot is weird because it has somewhat emotions. It’s downright weird. And… I can’t find the right word actually so help me out.

I am still weirded out by that but let’s kinda move on.

I mean, can you really move on from that fact? I still can’t.

Okay here’s the deal with this book. It’s short, emotional, artificial, and will make you think after you read it. The plot is gloriously unique. The writing is hauntingly great. The characters are… well, who they are. In other words, this book is genius. And honestly, I don’t know what else to say. That sentence sums up this book pretty much on point. The plot was not that predictable I mean, as a human being you have a common sense and you obviously understands what Unit 7435 is for and what was happening but in the point of view of a robot, you know the half and assume the other half. And then the weird feeling that the robot is starting to develop feelings. It was a weird but revolutionary read. For such a short story, here I end my ridiculously short review. All I can say is go read this for yourself and come back and tell me that this isn’t insane and scandalous and revolutionary and genius. This is. Don’t even fight me.
