    Boy Buys Girl Girl EvolvesFull disclosure I received a free electronic copy of this story for review through Library Thing's Member Giveaways program Also the last paragraph contains a vague spoilerWhat's the point of a new generation if we can live forever? And there it is My whole problem with the Transition Truthfully I always wanted kids But Tara didn'tand Destiny can't So what's the point?When Joe's wife Tara leaves him after than a decade of marriage he does what many middle aged newly single men of the future do he buys a companionship android At first glance the T 26 known as Destiny might seem to be at odds with Joe's longstanding resistance to the Transition in which one's consciousness is downloaded into a synthetic version of one's body; everybody's doing it but Destiny is a true android preprogrammed with a variety of factory settings Erotic Housewife she lacks any humanity of her own Whereas Joe's Transitioned friends are constant reminders of the crumbling wall between human and machine Destiny is 100% honest to goodness not human Much like his plasma screen tv and toaster oven Destiny is just another one of Joe's toys Until the day she isn't Destiny begins to learn Evolve Becomes sentient As Joe finds himself falling in love with an android he must decide what's important to him his humanity increasingly rare these days or eternal loveSmart and full of heart Destiny is a fun and uick read a little too uick if you ask me I'd love to see this story expanded in novel form The Habitat Facility is a nice touch and it's interesting to observe how Joe's behavior parallels that of some nonhuman animals kept in confinement pandas for example are notoriously reluctant to mate in zoos leading to the rise of panda porn

    This story started out with an interesting premise Technology has advanced so far that we can take our thoughts personalities and everything else that makes us mentally who we are and download it into an exact artificial copy of our body Androids are common place as well as an agency that's purpose is to preserve species that are becoming extinct It all sounds like a great futureAs the story progressed I found myself becoming and interested in the way this world worked and the conseuences it has on the individual as well as humanity as a whole There's also a discussion to be made about the love between man and machine because the lines are blurred between the two with Joe and Destiny I find myself thinking about it even hours after finishing the storyThe outcome was great too I found it a realistic way for the story to progress even if it's not the most positive conclusion I can't elaborate to avoid spoilers but I'll say that I was glad to see it end this way because it helped elaborate on the way this future society handles things and it made me think back on it all wondering What is humanity? What makes us what we are?
