My First Robot tells the tale of a young man given a robot back when robots are still uncommon, where said robot turns out to be rather more than he ever expected. This story from the Early Adopter Period shows what can happen when robots are yet to be ubiquitous, yet already full of surprises.
(Note to buyers: This story is also contained in the anthology: The Fembot Chronicles—Volume 1, available in e-book and print. In the same way that iTunes sells individual tracks off of an album, individual stories are available without the need to buy the entire anthology.)
Warning: This title contains sex with robots.
The best way to describe “My First Robot” is as a coming of age piece. It is written in first person, from the point of view of a man in his late 20’s who apparently does not have much of a sex life. His life completely changes when he meets Jenni.
This story may appeal more to men than women as it is mostly logic with little emotion. I found the whole story to be rather odd and was not able to connect with either of the characters. There was very little action and I found my brain wandering.
