Reviews of His Robot Girlfriend by Wesley Allison

Lee Willard reviewed on April 1, 2021

This is a cute little piece of fluff that is actually quite a bit of fun. The title pretty much tells the story. In the near future a lonely widowed schoolteacher buys himself a late model personal companion robot. Even though she looks human enough, everyone knows she's a robot because no twenty-something girl that hot would be in the company of a dowdy, paunchy, fiftyish schoolteacher. There's some comedy and a bit of mayhem, including one knock-down fight between robots. There is plenty of sex but only the most puritanical would call it porn.

The setting is the opposite of the dystopia of most near future sci-fi. The United States and its government still function, corporations have been put in their place, public education still functions, mag-lev trains cross the country and the Green Party is a major political force. Some may call it Pollyanna, but if you believe as I do that Sci-fi doesn't just predict the future, but is a factor in shaping the future, maybe that will do some good.

For some, such as me, the idea of a robot girlfriend without a mind of her own is quite unsettling, but Mike, the main character, has no misgivings. If there is a message here it is that robot marriage may be the next step after gay marriage. The author does not seem to have an opinion one way or the other, but tosses it out as something to consider.

I read about half before putting this down. The words all go together well, but the story is boring.

Unsure of how I found this story, or why I even started reading it in the first place, I feel I must now complete the process with a review. This is my burden.

Self-fanfiction. Going by the author's photo, and day job, that is the only way I can adequately describe what you are getting when you open up "His Robot Girlfriend".

However, even as fanfiction goes, it's a bit on the unimaginative side. The story trudges along at a snail's pace, and the author spends the majority of his word-count describing the robot's various clothing choices. It's labeled as "adult", but even there it falls short.

I'll save you some time, and include the best part of the book, hands down.

“Good. I’m glad. And I have a job for you.”
“What kind of a job, Mike?” She placed the tip of her index finger on her chin. “A sexual job?”
“Precisely,” said Mike. “I don’t care how big of a nerd this makes me. I want to get blown on Deep Space Nine.”

The idea of realistic -- even beautiful -- humanoid robots opens up some big questions. The biggest question, of course, is how long would it take for the human race to go extinct as men (and women) turn to robots instead of each other.

But this story doesn't really address the big problems, and that's fine with me. It does have some very adult scenes, but that's not the main theme. It also has some funny scenes, but I wouldn't call it a comedy. It's a quick, light read, and it's a very good one, at that.

I enjoyed it and I'd be happy to recommend it to someone looking for a light-hearted adult "fairy tale" for the technological age.

Not epic, but a good read nonetheless. Instead of one major conflict or arc, the story drags on several mini arcs and doesn't really build up into anything big or climatic. But still, I honestly loved this book. Reading it is so relaxing and actually makes me imagine if such a technology would ever become available. I finished it in 2 days.

My only concern is the pacing might be a little too quick. Some scenes may have been better if they were more detailed instead of just summarizing along. But hey, it's anyone's style so it's still good. :)

A life story, comfortable but with a touch of drama in all the right places. I was expecting a little more erotica that it gives, but I'm glad it's not there. It would have been out of place with the pacing I think. Also, it's what kept me from reading the book in the first place.

All in all it's worth a read, but I don't think I'll be reading the sequels.

It's nice to have a GOOD robot story for a change, instead of always having the robots wanting to wipe out humanity. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes Isaac Asimov type stories, where the robots are the GOOD GUYS!

The story line and dialogue is rather juvenile; not well formed and rather on the bland side of the master/slave relationship. As a sex slave she had the words correct, but as a master he was rather uninspired and boring…kind of like watching paint dry. The story isn’t bad, per se, just plodding and unimaginative. I finished the book, but can’t see myself seeking out this particular author again.
