BOOK: A Robot in the Garden
AUTHOR: Deborah Install
I actually read this book a few years ago, but for some reason the review never posted. So I am redoing it now.
I mean how much more quirky can you be? A Robot...in your garden? I had a hard time getting through this book though because it tended to be overly sentimental and I don’t really prefer to read those kinds of books. It reminded me a lot of the “boy and his dog” movies except in this case, the dog is a robot. I will say it is very touching and a lovely written book.
Short Synopsis (from Goodreads):
With all the charm and humour of THE ROSIE PROJECT and ABOUT A BOY mingled with the heart-swelling warmth of PADDINGTON BEAR MOVIE.
A story of the greatest friendship ever assembled.
Ben Chambers wakes up to find something rusty and lost underneath the willow tree in his garden. Refusing to throw it on the skip as his wife Amy advises, he takes it home.
I received this book for review purposes from NetGalley. ⠀
