A fascinating riff on the subject. Quite enjoyable.

'The Love Machine' is a very well-written novella.

Because the story did not take place in a 'futuristic' setting I found it difficult to believe that two people could make such a complex machine. Though the writing was so strong that the implausibility of the AI didn't concern me very much.

Review by: Karen on Sep. 25, 2011 :
I dont care for violent scenes (books, TV, movies.) When she programmed the robot, I just knew something would go wrong. She's human, he's a robot. And it happened. I was grossed out but I felt for the humans. The ending was exceptional for all involved - even the robot. I was FASCINATED with the story. Yes, I read it 3 times! I deleted the story from my reader because it was a bit violent for my taste. Even now, months later, I still remember the story! Now THAT tells you how good a story this is!

Review by: Nuala Breckenridge on Dec. 12, 2010 :
I agree, it is a strong and very interesting modern take on Frankenstein; it's also very surprising. I actually cried when I got to the end of the story.

Review by: Doug Pardee on March 15, 2010 :
A strong and interesting modern take on Frankenstein. If the description sounds interesting, I think you'll like this short story a lot.

A dinged it one star for not knowing when to stop. The denouement stretches into an epilogue that lets much of the power of the story drain away.
