“Until recently, I didn’t think that humans could choose loneliness. That there were sometimes forces more powerful than the wish to avoid loneliness.”
Klara is an Artificial Friend, when we first meet her she is in the store just hoping to be purchased. We see the depth of her observation about the world, and a little like I, Robot or Humans we see there may be more there than just algorithms. When Klara is spotted by a sick little girl, her journey truly begins. I don’t want to give away too much because it’s better to experience the journey with Klara as she immerses herself in this family.
Although it’s a “sci-fi” novel, it’s really about all the human emotions that make up a family. Klara makes some deep observations about how family and friends relate to one another. She sees the depths people will go for those they love and how illogical those choices may be. She also makes some amazing gestures of love herself as she begins to try to understand humanity better.
This book was a like and not a love for me. The concept was great but I needed a bit more plot or a slightly faster pace to keep me invested. The ending was not what I was expecting and I liked what I had surmised in my head better than where it truly ended up. LOL ⭐️⭐️⭐️
