I was going to post earlier, but I had an impromptu girls' night when my friend needed to get out of her house, lol. So I've been a bit busy talking and such, and eating donut holes, you know, like all girls do! lol
Okay, so tonight's review is of Girl Parts by John M. Cusick.
Summary: "David and Charlie are opposites. David has a million friends, online and off. Charlie is a soulful outsider, off the grid completely. But neither feels close to anybody. When David’s parents present him with a hot Companion bot designed to encourage healthy bonds and treat his “dissociative disorder,” he can’t get enough of luscious redheaded Rose — and he can’t get it soon. Companions come with strict intimacy protocols, and whenever he tries anything, David gets an electric shock. Parted from the boy she was built to love, Rose turns to Charlie, who finds he can open up, knowing Rose isn’t real. With Charlie’s help, the ideal “companion” is about to become her own best friend. In a stunning and hilarious debut, John Cusick takes rollicking aim at internet culture and our craving for meaningful connection in an uberconnected world."
I read this awhile ago, and it's stuck with me because it truly is a very unique story. Rose is a very interesting character, where she realizes how much she does or doesn't know about being real. I felt bad for her, being meant to feel love towards one person, but not know why. I could just envision both guys and their so different lives. I didn't enjoy the amount of sex, and how meaningless it could be. However, it's still a unique book.
In Conclusion: Read it, but keep in mind that it's a light read, so do it fast if you do. Then go read my 5 star books.
3.5 or 4/5
