Machines Like Me Audiobook Streaming by Ian McEwan

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Machines Like Me by Ian McEwan, read by Billy Howle.

Britain has lost the Falklands war, Margaret Thatcher battles Tony Benn for power and Alan Turing achieves a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. In a world not quite like this one, two lovers will be tested beyond their understanding.

Machines Like Me occurs in an alternative 1980s London. Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first batch of synthetic humans. With Miranda’s assistance, he co-designs Adam’s personality. This near-perfect human is beautiful, strong and clever – a love triangle soon forms. These three beings will confront a profound moral dilemma. Ian McEwan’s subversive and entertaining new novel poses fundamental questions: what makes us human? Our outward deeds or our inner lives? Could a machine understand the human heart? This provocative and thrilling tale warns of the power to invent things beyond our control.

    I enjoyed the book very much, it was thought provoking on a few levels. The narrator was proficient, if a little bland.

  • Louisa C.

    For a novel about the intricacies of consciousness and what makes one human, theres an odd blank spot - the absolute blankness of the beautiful but otherwise unremarkable female love interest. The book is clever and entertaining, with plenty of good for thought, but falls into the full and predictable trap of using a rape as a form of character development. For a book with a protagonist who is an anthropologist with a background in sociology, this pivotal rape and its consequences are handled crudely, with the rapists motivation being ascribed to sexual desire. It seems McEwan can conceive of robots as fully human, but not women

    Very enjoyable with several plots running concurrently though bound together as the story goes on. Very descriptive and I could see in my mind’s eye everything in detail. Very well narrated with the change to cockney accent very well done. I would definitely recommend this book.
