Today I am Paul by Martin L. Shoemaker (Four Stars)

Book Review: Today I am Paul by Martin L. Shoemaker

Four Stars

“That third part of me wonders when I think like that.”

A poignant story about a very-possible future with AI android care takers who provide companionship and emotional support for those who suffer dementia. An unintended consequence of this machine’s configuration is that it is aware of itself.

“Where Millie’s slate fills a little more each day, Mildred’s is erased bit-by-bit.

Well-conceived and executed from the point of view of the machine. A story that may be prophetic; not all will find comfort in that idea.

“Today I am Mildred.”
