Inhaltsangabe

In 2068, androids are an integrated part of human life. Big Brother no longer just watches from the shadows. It's in every household.

Lloyd Salter has OCD issues with noise and mess, and he's uncomfortable with human interaction. When his ex claimed the only thing perfect enough to live up to his standards was an android, Lloyd dismissed it. But two years later, after much self-assessment, he thinks he may have been right.

SATinc is the largest manufacturer of androids in Australia, including the Fully Compatible Units known as an A-Class 10. Their latest design is the Synthetic Human Android UNit, otherwise known as SHAUN. Shaun is compatible to Lloyd's every need; the perfect fit on an intellectual and physical basis.

But Lloyd soon realizes Shaun's not like other A-Class androids. He learns. He adapts. Sure that SATinc is aware Shaun functions outside of his programmed parameters, Lloyd must find a way to keep Shaun safe. No one can know how special Shaun is. No one can know he's evolved. 

Contains mature themes.

Wow - that was great!

I often enjoy N.R. Walker books, but this one was even better. Unfortunately I listened to it all in one go because I couldn’t stop which meant I didn’t go to sleep until 3am ..work will be tough today!! Definitely recommend it!

If you liked this book give SPECTR: The Complete First Series (books 1-6) by Jordan L. Hawk a go. Not the same set up as this story, but it’s an unusual relationship and I got absorbed in that book too.

How To Love Your Android :)

Story: I'm not a sci-fi aficionado by any stretch, but I was captivated by the story. After Lloyd's ex told him that only a robot would be a perfect match, Lloyd sets out to do just that - order his perfect man. NR Walker's story is very relevant to today's world - cloning, creating artificial intelligent (AI) machines, sex bots and let's not forget Big Brother surveillance.
I loved how Shaun 'evolved' from AI to sentient being through his interactions and slow wooing of Lloyd (even if both were not aware of the slow burn romance at first). Excellent story.
Narration: I never thought I would say that Joel Leslie sounded 'robotic', but here it is. It was brilliant! His portrayal of Shaun was perfect. And as Shaun evolved, I thought he sounded more and more human in his speech, thanks to Joel's talent. Joel managed to make the owner of SAT Inc oily, smarmy without making it over the top.
Anyway, if I though the book was great, Joel's narration was genius!
Highly recommend.

Beautiful love story

The combination of N R Walker and Joel Leslie inspired me to download this book even though the subject wasn't my usual thing. Oh my goodness I am so glad I did. This has to be my book of the year.
A concept that has no doubt been covered before - an artificially intelligent Android becoming self aware, made for a touching, heartwarming, heartbreaking, beautiful love story.
Walker just gets it right, whilst Leslie brings the whole thing to life in my head as though I'm watching a film.
If you are a N R Walker fan but are a little unsure of the subject matter just go with your heart and download it. You will not be sorry. This is an audio book I can listen to again and again.

A surprise well worth perseverance

Great sci-fi story. Thought provoking. Highly erotic & deeply sensual. Nervous narration truly painful and distracting at the start though the narrator's performance of other characters was extremely good. Well worth the perseverance.

I want a Shaun!

This is not your normal MM romance, but despite being in a dystopian setting it is still a story of love and acceptance.
I couldn’t help falling in love with both Lloyd and Shaun.
NR Walker expertly takes you on a journey of emotions through the characters and although this is a Sci-Fi story set in the not too distant future, it’s not too far out of the realms of believability.
Joel Leslie is one of my top 3 narrators and I couldn’t think of anyone better to have narrated this audiobook.
He was Pluperfect! Lol
