Morrigan Crow is cursed. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she's blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks - and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her 11th birthday. But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears.

Robot Robbie is just one of 100 new robots. Running revolutionary new software, these robots are truly unique. His only desire is to serve Lucy Walker. Brian Webster, his developer, also installs "The Governor" overseeing software that adds an additional safety layer, but this denies the robots free will. Hoping to develop the robots further, Brian inadvertently opens a channel where the robots can communicate and share their experiences.

This story is both entertaining and also very deep. We follow the birth and development of consciousness arising within a non human 'mind' and are brought into the debate as to whether this can be classified as consciousness in the same way we humans experience. All of this is done skillfully within human family dramas which are of themselves very engaging. Given the times we live in, in which AI ability is developing at an incredible rate, this story has great relevance. I recommend this audio book to anyone interested in this topic (as the details of AI development are very well researched) and also to those who just love a good human story. Both will be delighted.

It is 2068 and humans are attempting to colonize Mars. Patricia Vicarro, director of a Mars colonization project, has selected HWR-001-046-QF Andrea to send to Mars in the first of a three-stage project to build a colony. Everything must be perfect. Andrea spent nearly three years in isolation, preparing for astronaut Adam Copelane's arrival. He will be the first human on Mars and will join Andrea in building the colony pods for the third phase. Now, with everything ready for Adam, she watches the Martian sky eagerly.

I have read Andrea the Martian Robot as an e-book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The audio book lived up to my expectations. Andrea finds herself at the centre of a remarkable drama. The listener is drawn intimately into the awakening of Andrea's consciousness, which is portrayed as both innocent and yet wise, as well as swept into the vast majesty of the harsh Martian planet. The author did an excellent job of holding the listener attention - using science facts to make science fiction seem very believable. The performance was excellent also - so that Andrea's character particularly - was brought beautifully and poignantly to life. Definitely worth listening to.
