Life on earth has changed, all the humans are gone, and the robots have messed up things even worse than we did. Now the robots are fighting amongst each other-the fight for individuality and life itself remains the same, be it among regular robots, OWI (One World Intelligence), or the humans that have long since disappeared.
Overall, I enjoyed SEA OF RUST, but I feel a bit let down. After reading Joe Hill's rave review, I guess my expectations were a bit too high. I liked Brittle, even though she wasn't a likable bot, and I found myself attributing human feeling to her-I think that is a sign of Cargill's powerful writing. Pretty much no one bot was likable, to be honest, and that's fine with me. I did enjoy the world building and how the tale was told in a back and forth type manner. Overall, though, I didn't LOVE it, and I can't seem to put my finger on exactly why, (other than what I say below.)
I didn't enjoy the last chapter very much because(show spoiler)
Overall, I did enjoy this book but I expected more. Recommended, but not heartily!
I bought this e-book AND the audiobook with my hard earned cash.
