Mike Smith's life was crap, living all alone, years after his wife had died and his children had grown up and moved away. Then he saw the commercial for the Daffodil. Far more than other robots, the Daffodil could become anything and everything he wanted it to be. Mike's life is about to change.

Mike looked at the clock on the wall. It was 3:20 PM. He counted off six hours on his fingers—9:20. He sat down on the white sofa that was almost never used and looked at the shapely nude robot. With a wry smile, he realized that he could sit and stare at it for the next six hours, or he could get up and do something. He went back to the family room, picked up the texTee, and flipped open Moby Dick, but he didn't read any more of it. Instead he turned the select dial to the bookstore and typed in "names". The titles of half a dozen books appeared including "The Name Book", "The Secret Universe of Names", and "The Baby Name Wizard". He selected the last book of the six: "Virtue Names". It took about twenty seconds for the book to download to the texTee. Looking back to the screen, Mike turned to the first page of the name book. The first name was Agape. Agape? The book said that it had something to

This is a truly disgusting book about sex and "love" with robots. Unfortunately, it reflects exactly where we're going as a society. I could only take so much before bailing.
I could not get into this book at all. It started out slow but I gave it a chance because other books start off slow and get better as you go. This was not the case. There was no literary interest at all. I find that there was no interesting characters. The story seems good on paper but its delivery has a lot to be desired.
I, as most men, would LOVE to have a robot girlfriend and this story makes me very jealous. I thought it was well done, easy reading, and a wonderful story. I think most guys would rate it high and women will rate it lower.

Liked it, I want a robot girlfriend. ok it didnt go far in its storyline, but still enjoyed it. I read it twice.
It was FREE. Did you really expect a great novel? It was good, not great, but worth the paper it wasn't printed on. Remember it was FREE, as in its only cost to you was time.
Author misses several opportunities to leading an interesting story line into a suspenseful plot. Author could have given more pages to developing main character\'s thoughts and feelings.
This novella is interesting. On the surface, the story is kind of simplistic. But I think there are some (probably)very sarcastic and disturbing undertones which speak to our nature. I won't openly analyze them, but a couple of hints are the protagonist's constant compulsively fixation to the penny with the cost of everything, and the anti-romantic ending, where he slips into total dependency.
Main character orders his dream woman, she does whatever he wants, he falls in love and marries her. Definitely, a lonely 50 year old man's fantasy.
Reads more like the author's personal fantasy than a novel. It had some good moments but there was way too much detail about how exactly the cute little robot girl was dressed every day. The ending was weak. There is a natural stopping point about two thirds of the way through the novel, but it continues past this for a lame happy-ever-after ending. Still, if you have the same fantasies (your own life size walking, talking doll to dress up and make love to), then this book might be for you.
