Finn looks and acts human, though he has no desire to be. He was programmed to assist his owners, and performs his duties to perfection. A billion-dollar construct, his primary task now is to tutor Cat. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, Finn is her guardian, her constant companion…and more. But when the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, however, Finn struggles to find his place in the world, and in Cat’s heart.
"Unique, heart-wrenching, full of mysteries and twists." (Tamora Pierce on
The Assassin’s Curse)

Becomes involving but story better than narration.
Pretty good but could have been a little better with a different narrator.
Nothing specially stands out. But I enjoyed the interaction of Kat and Finn.
Well . . . I do think the voice of Kat's father was poor. Kate Rudd tried to deepen her voice to give the impression of an older man, but with her rather slow, deliberate narrating style it came over rather like someone reading The Three Bears to a child and trying to do Daddy Bear. Sometimes the narration was a bit too slow and ponderous for comfort. At first it was a bit off-putting but it didn't really spoil it for me once I got used to the way she read it as I enjoyed the story itself a lot.
The same as the book - "A tale of love, loss and robots."
Starts off feeling rather like a children's book or one aimed at young adults but this is largely due to the narrating style. But it develops as the character Kat gets older within the story so I suppose it works that way. I did look forward to hearing more of it each day so i'd recommend it if you like stories like Edward Scissorhands maybe.
