Automaton Nation by Cynthia Kumanchik

A spectacular SF tale…

The intricacies of technology, politics, and coming of age mark Kumanchik’s latest set in 2045 in the futuristic Capitol City of California. When Dat, a Model-500 human-like android, makes his debut as a chef for the Governor’s Gala, he has no clue his life is going to change forever. A terrorist attack interrupts the festivities and thrusts Dat alongside Val, the daughter of Tony De LaFleur, the creator of the Model-500’s Genealogy Project. A budding friendship grows between the pair. As they get over their initial misconceptions, a robot rebellion seems like a worthy cause to join. While the premise is not really new, Kumanchik’s writing is stunning, and the lightening-paced narrative and taut characterization keep the reader hooked. The way Kumanchik executes the plot is what make this book special: even the seasoned reader won’t be able to recognizes the implication of the impending events, and the shocking and yet wholly satisfying conclusion lifts this brilliant SF tale further. This is a must-read.
