Alyssa Cole brings us an A.I and human romance in the A.I Who Loved Me!
I really liked the narration, it was done superbly. It made for a super easy listen.
I didn’t realise when I started that this is more of a novella than a full book, just fyi for anyone wanting to start this. Also I think a good way to get a feel of Alyssa Cole’s writing if you’re not familiar with her.
Trinity Jordan is a data analyst who works for the government. She is now working from her home after her accident, and is currently in therapy for this. Li Wei is the new guy in their apartment complex, Trinity’s neighbour and friend’s nephew. He is also recovering from his own injuries, so Trinity and Li Wei have that in common. He is odd, but Trinity can’t help but be attracted towards him. What she doesn’t know is that he’s biosynthetic humanoid (an A.I.)
I found the world of Trinity and Li Wei to be extremely fascinating, while their story is mostly just around the apartment complex they live in we get bits and pieces of the world beyond that. Its pretty obvious that the accident and things currently happening to and around Trinity are more than they seem. Even though it’s short, we get a really fully developed plot and romance. Thrown in with some banter, friendships and some overload government action to make it an engrossing listen from start to finish. I also really liked Trinity and Li Wei. I have read some robot/human books before so I am not new to the genre. I really liked their relationship we get to see them connect, develop feelings and their interactions were pretty fun.
All in all, pretty satisfied with this listen! It was sweet, funny and adorable. Also there’s a pet cat, so what’s not to love!
