better book than the rating indicates There was a lot I liked about this debut and a bit I didn t I liked the characters, the setting, the plot, and even the ending which made me cry It was sweet and hopeful and inevitable, but Archer handled it with such grace that it really was perfect I liked the way time passed in this sto First off, I m giving this 5 stars because while it is only a solid 4

the characters, the setting, the plot, and even the ending which made me cry It was sweet and hopeful and inevitable, but Archer handled it with such grace that it really was perfect I liked the way time passed in this story Conversations between the characters were insightful and led Kelly to be appropriately introspective It was evident to me that this happened in a near future when robotics has advanced I could go on and on about what I did like, which is probably 90% of the book The bit I didn t like was the way things were overly drawn out The whole indecisiveness of the main character Kelly went a little too long for me I loved Ethan, but I wish he d beenclearly defined, even exaggerated as someone who could only think of the world as it related to Kelly And there was a slight confusion for me about Kelly having so much trouble on a project when she whipped another better one up in a weekend in that respect Ethan should have been a lotsimple This lent to the believability of the story overall Kelly kept a lot to herself and that got a little frustrating, mainly because she couldn t solve the problem alone.There s probablyI could pick at, but honestly, why I enjoyed this book thoroughly Great characters and an interesting plot And there were funny little zingers popping up unexpectedly Some of the metaphors were hilarious I will definitely pick upbooks from this author.Lauren Fortgang is always great on any audiobook I know I m going to love her narration and this time was no exception She really brought it to life I actually had so much fun reading this book I guess I m only human There were bits that reminded me of Jane Austen s dry wit esp Kelly s parents and others that were clearly uncomplicated super relaxing chick lit, and I loved this summer read for both its entertainment value and how close it made me feel to the protagonist.Let s face it, the robot boyfriend arc is kind of predictable, it has to be, which means that you can focus on the characters, relationships and their evolution Kelly I actually had so much fun reading this book I guess I m only human There were bits that reminded me of Jane Austen s dry wit esp Kelly s parents

robot boyfriend arc is kind of predictable, it has to be, which means that you can focus on the characters, relationships and their evolution Kelly was just brilliant in her social awkwardness and willingness to learn from the data life is stubbornly providing her with The fact that I found her very relatable is something I d need to reflect on Priya was another great character I was really glad that their friendship withstood the trials and tribulations of Kelly s brief and illuminating relationship with a robot.At the heart of the novel is Kelly s journey to understand herself Her lack of a wedding date at the ripe age of twenty nine didn t come out of blue, it was deeply rooted in her fear of getting too close to somebody, fear of ending up in a relationship where nobody talks about things that matter, fear of indifference and giving in The way she chose to go about it was creating her ultimate version of a safety net, a boyfriend that is programmed to love her unconditionally the way she is Eventually, she does realise love isn t love where there is no free will.A charming debut novel and a perfect summer read I ll be definitely looking forward to readingbooks from Sarah Archer in future.Thank you to Edelweiss and G.P.Putnam s sons for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest opinion.My reviews can also be found on This is going to be short review Since I don t have much to say about this book But I should start with saying that not every debut novel this year is working out for me.I really loved the premise of the story BUT.It s not easy to fall in love with a robot A character, even a robot, needs personality, some kind of personality, humor, sarcasm or just plain weirdness But it needs something I can identify him with Being just a robot is not enough And that was part of the issue.Not being abl This is going to be short review Since I don t have much to say about this book But I should start with saying that not every debut novel this year is working out for me.I really loved the premise of the story BUT.It s not easy to fall in love with a robot A character, even a robot, needs personality, some kind of personality, humor, sarcasm or just plain weirdness But it needs something I can identify him with Being just a robot is not enough And that was part of the issue.Not being able to fall in love with the hero is one thing, not caring for the heroine is something altogether different.The female character has to be likable since she often carries the overall story It s hard to connect with her if she is being stereotyped socially awkward, and nerdy and turns out to be just plain uninteresting I ve read quite a few books about socially awkward characters, Eleanor, OVE, Don they all were expectational characters because the authors were dedicated on making them different but still relatable.Nevertheless Kelly grew as a person throughout the book, which was something that gave the story depth and meaning Because even though I loved the idea of the premise, it turned out to be a bitunrealistic and strange than expected And yes, the outcome was predictable, because Ethan was a robot, it can only end one way What I ended up enjoying the most about this book was Kelly s family, their interactions and love for each other That also confirmed that the author has potential I m looking forward to seeing what she comes up next.ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review.Findreviews and book recommendations on my blog.Find me on Bookstagram About the fact that she

robot relationships.I have just finished reading this book, and as I write this review, I still have not fully decided whether I like this read or not It s crazy why I am at a loss to where I stand on this one The Plus One is the story of Kelly, a robotics engineer, who at a loss of finding a date to her sister s wedding used a prototype of her project Confibot and created Ethan, the robot Ethan is a unique and very realistic humanoid that is programmed to give care to people a la Baymax of Big Hero 6 He is a self teaching robot who can adapt to the mind and behavior of his owner Problems ensue when Kelly finds herself falling for him, and, Ethan, as he is programmed, reciprocates her feelings as well.This book reminded me of Chobits, a Japanese manga and anime that revolves around Chi, a persocom or humanoid robot.The story was dependent on how the reader will feel toward Ethan I admit I like him, but I was weirded out by the sex with robots part I mean you have to admit it s weird Also, when it happened with no context, and explanations was skipped in the book, too.It was hard to love the book because Kelly, the main character was hard to love She comes of as unlikeable because she tends to look at herself so low, and looking at others so low, too I hate how much she was bearing grudges to her own family and extending to a tangled web of lies.I was a bit meh with the ending, but I guess it was a way to relay the overall message of the book which frankly is saying that this is not a romance This book is about Kelly learning to love herself.Overll, I think the book was promising, but failed to deliver likeable characters and interesting love story THE CRITERIA Blurb Hero Heroine Support Characters Writing Style Character Development Romance Pacing Ending
