Dy's Take

Eros, Philia, Agape by Rachel Swirsky

I read this because I loved Swirsky’s “A Memory of Wind.” Sadly, it was not as good. Reminded me a lot of “Bladerunner.” (I’ve never read Phillip K. Dick’s, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” but I suspect this story has much in common with it, in condensed form.

I do wish the author had picked one character to follow, either the robot or the human—the two sides of the story didn’t mesh well, and like everyone else in the human’s life, I found the robot more interesting.
