Becomes involving but story better than narration.
Where does The Mad Scientist's Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Pretty good but could have been a little better with a different narrator.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mad Scientist's Daughter?
Nothing specially stands out. But I enjoyed the interaction of Kat and Finn.
Did Kate Rudd do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
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.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The same as the book - "A tale of love, loss and robots."
Any additional comments?
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.

Interesting adolescent tale about Artificial Intel
Interesting tale from an adolescent point of view of growing up with a robot as a companion. It could have been financed by the cigarette lobby with its silly adolescent preoccupation with cigarettes.
This may be the future with it's many legal complications. Interesting glimpse of the brave new world

It just didn't do it for me.
What would have made The Mad Scientist's Daughter better?
I did not enjoy the story as a love story or a sci-fi novel at all. I thought the main character was annoying and the android she was in love with had no personality, so it's hard for me to imagine how she even fell in love with him.
What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I've enjoyed narrator Kate Rudd from other books and while I did not enjoy the story at all I did enjoy the presentation of it, she always does a good job.
What character would you cut from The Mad Scientist's Daughter?
All of them I didn't like any of the characters I didn't associate with any of the characters I didn't cheer for any of the characters.
