So I was bored one day in one of my classes that shares a room with the high school library. So, I went and looked at the books. This one was just a small book and seemed well below my reading level. But for some reason, I took it and started reading it. I fell in love.



Eager by Helen Fox

It's the end of the 21st century where technocrats rule and robots take care of humans' every need. Your house watches you, knows your secrets, and talks to you. And your closest friend can be--a machine?

Gavin Bell and his teenage sister Fleur come from a middle-class family. Their much-loved, old-fashioned robot, Grumps, is running down and can't be repaired, so a scientist friend loans them EGR3, an experimental new robot to help Grumps. EGR3, known as Eager, learns from his experiences, as a child would. He feels emotions--wonder, excitement, and loss. When the ultra high-tech, eerily human BDC4 robots begin to behave suspiciously, Eager and the Bells are drawn into a great adventure that is sometimes dark and often humorous. As Eager's extraordinary abilities are tested to the limit, he will try to find the answer to this question: What does it mean to be alive?



My Review: I think it is a wonderful book that provokes thoughts (thanks tinfoil hat wearin -not literally but almost- english teacher) such as "What if this is where the government is going?" or "Should I rethink how I treat machines that work so dutifully for me?" It is one of those books were you get attached to the characters and become increasingly sad to see the pages dwindle as you go. I recommend it. So overlook the cover and try to look into the meaning of the book.

Rating : *****
