NOVEL OF THE MONTH

Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan

Ian McEwan’s subversive and entertaining new novel poses fundamental questions: what makes us human? Our outward deeds or our inner lives? Could a machine understand the human heart?

In an alternate version of London in the 1980s, androids can be purchased as personal companions. Underachieving Charlie is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys a synthetic human and, with Miranda’s help, designs the android’s personality. What follows is a provocative and thrilling cautionary tale about inventing things beyond our control.
