Charlie is the natural outsider. David is the natural insider. They are both alone and “disconnected.” The treatment for both, a companion. Companions are hot girly bots programmed to help those with “dissociative disorder” connect to something in a real and meaningful way, and Rose is the hottest of hot. When David’s companion goes AWOL she finds herself drawn to Charlie and the connection changes both of them forever.
This book was an interesting read. It definitely feels written for a girl audience but I think that some guys would find it at least entertaining considering it was written by a guy. Guys may find a reflective mirror for themselves in the character of Rose as we see how the guys interact with her and how it affects her. The book was an alright read. If you are a reader that doesn’t mind reading the age old girl loses boyfriend, girl connects with another guy, girl is a cyborg programmed to like the other guy then this is the book for you. Girl Parts by John M. Cusick will be released 8/2010.
