I'm surprised to see so many negative comments! It's a Patterson book, so, yes, it is written in short chapters and simple language. But in the age of truth and reconciliation the theme is timely and deserves to be explored more. Gives us a chance to stand in the shoes of a whole civilization decimated by war and shuffled off to reserves and sub-human living conditions. (oh, and subsequently blamed and shamed for living in sub-human conditions.) I really liked the main characters and the dark and dirty setting. I'd give this title to any young adult, and to any grown-up looking for an easy fast read.

I don't see the point of a book that has robots running the world, acting like humans. Worrying about promotions, etc!

This is about the worse book I ever read by Patterson. I can't say more ,
I did not finish this book.

A light read, it has action, but is unsatisfying. Written at a middle school level. It is about humans being subjugated by the androids they created, whose greatest flaw was lack of emotions especially empathy. Humans regain their dignity by overthrowing their masters and reprograming the androids as friends. The book ends there and there is no mention how humans will get along with superior beings in harmony (even if they are empathetic). How would we care for Neanderthals if they were among us? Could they survive?

Patterson is a male Danielle Steele; he knows who his audience is and he writes for them at about a sixth grade level.

I always suspected Patterson was an awful writer but damn. The prose was so horrendous that only a nation whose President is addicted to Twitter and the populace addicted to the NFL, Dancing with the Stars and Facebook could have this guy as their highest paid author. It started out real strong with a great premise but devolved so rapidly it was worse than sitting through an AA meeting in the basement of a Mormon Temple.

If I had known this was a robot-science fiction, futuristic novel, I wouldn't have rented it. I'm sure that those into this genre of book would enjoy it
