This book could have been cut down 200 pages. I know, I'm always the first one to complain if the author doesn't give enough back story to let you know what's going on, but in this case less would have been acceptable. For some reason the author seemed think that we needed to know all about the childhood and relationship woes of both main characters: Meredith and Roberta. Pages and pages full. Even knowing their personal history I still didn't care much for them. Just not very likable personalities.
There are AI's and (ro)bots of all kinds, and a some what sci-fi plot. The story is set 40 years in the future but it still has a dated feel to it. Too much was centered around mental health issues, and I felt like I was being beaten over the head with messages of love and forgiveness. 2 Stars.
