I am by no means alone in thinking that this funny, madcap romp for the digital-age, featuring believably flawed characters (not all human), deserves to be a hit. Rights have been sold in 26 territories and Working Title and Fox 2000 have a Film option on what could be Sleepless in Seattle meets The Lobster. One of the factors in its favour is that, like David Nicholls' One Day or Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project, it should appeal to male and female readers.
It's refreshing to read such a positive, funny and warm story about the potential of artificial intelligence. These computer programs don't want to destroy humanity, they want to watch soppy films and help people fall in love. This is Jane Austen's Emma for the digital era.
So funny, clever and timely. I loved it.
Bridget Jones' diary for the digital age
A frothy rom-com in literary form...a broad and madcap love story...charming
reads a bit like a Richard Curtis screenplay adapted from the works of Arthur C Clarke... Clever but unpretentious, this book is both a light-hearted confection that will leave you with a warm glow and a chilling vision of things to come
You'll love this quirky, brilliantly funny love story... If you use Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant, prepare to have your heart warmed - and be a little bit scared!
One of the most unique love stories ever written, this novel blends the ethereal concepts of true love and fate with a thoughtful examination of the risks and worries of artificial intelligence.
A smart, warm fiction and the ultimate curl-up read... the most charming book I've read in ages
This screwball comedy is touching and hilarious
One of the most uplifting and romantic novels I've read in a long time
Loved this book. Funny, quirky, unexpected
Humans meets The Rosie Project . . . A real smiler of a book
Very clever and great fun
A sort of Shakespearean comedy of errors but instead of the gods there are rogue AIs seeking to meddle in the affairs of humans. Great fun.
An original and thought-provoking little gem
an absolute joy to read... Hilarious and exceedingly relatable
This clever novel will appeal to David Nicholls fans. It's witty and great fun
A sweet romantic comedy that asks what it really means to be happy (and also takes a gentle look at the scary idea of technology taking over our lives)
Fun, romantic, original, with a clever and sinister twist
