  • 1 thought on “PePr, Inc.”

    1. It's a thought-provoking short story with a significant shift of perspective in the middle. I would say this is a worthy contribution to the venerable genre of robo-fiction (yes, I just invented that word!). Having grown up reading Asimov's robot stories which I loved, I found Ms. Christy's work a welcome development that updates the idea of human/android cohabitation - the world she imagines is more believable than it was even a few years ago and I look forward to reading her other PePr books.

    2. The title made me smile. The word perfect doesn’t usually describe any kind of relationship that involves a human. This is going to be such an interesting series. I liked Hazel right from the start. Really, you have to sympathize with her. Henry does seem to be difficult, and he’s surely not perfect for Hazel. How Hazel copes with that is the rest of the story. And it’s a clever, sneaky story. I loved it. I’ll be happy to read the rest of the stories as fast as Ann can write them.

    3. I liked it! It was good, really good especially the twist. It had me laughing cuz what I thought and what happened had me chuckling. It's just I read Posthumous before this and that was really amazing and had my expectations high so But really good short and cool read. Got the book in exchange of an honest review.

    4. This short little goody is totally not what I expected. I read this in one sitting, and half way through, my jaw hit the floor. Ann is such a talented writer and amazing at keeping you on your toes. Already purchased and downloaded book two to this crazy series. I new robots were scary! Creepy little creepers!

    5. A truly surprising story - the twists within the story were AMAZING and very well done. I loved it, originally read it in one of the Chronicles Books (HINT-HINT - Samuel Peralta is ROCKING the Sci-Fi WORLD with the Future Chronicles - TRY THEM, you'll LOVE them!!), "The Robot Chronicles" amazon/gp/product/B00MI long for book Two : Posthumous (Perfect Partners, Incorporated Book 2)amazon/Posthumous-Perfd Three: Imperfect (Perfect Partners, Incorporated Book 3) amazon/Imperfect-Perfe(My Review: T [...]

    6. ***Review originally posted on ****"Pepr, Inc." is the first story I have read from Ann Christy. This series is unique because the stories live in the same universe, but the characters span different points of time in the universe. Christy has a wonderful writing style which causes the reader to become invested in the characters while also posing some deep questions regarding the future of technology and the blurred lines between the complicated relationships humans are having with technology. T [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This story is set in a world where synthetic human companions aka as Perfect Partners are part of everyday life.The authors well developed characters and amazing world building kept me glued to my tablet all night reading.Ann Christy has an amazing talent for revealing layers of a story slowly to bring you to a unique and satisfying ending.Having read other short stories in the Perfect Partners series I enjoyed findi [...]

    8. This was, by far, the best short story I've had the pleasure of reading. Ann did an outstanding job writing this story, it had me hooked from the very beginning. OH, and the ending, wow oh wow the ending was so not what I was expecting, it was incredible.

    9. I read this as part of the Robot Chronicles anthology. It is a very good story. Well written. A good plot. Interesting reading.

    10. Wow. Good story!!! Ann Christy really had me on this one. I loved Hazel from the get go. And, oh man the twist! Needless to say I loved it. I will need to try more by this talented author!

    11. Interesting story!Completely different from what I'm used to reading. I enjoyed it and wouldn't mind reading more stories in the PePr, Inc. Universe!

    12. I LOVED this short story! Not only it reminded me of my favorite TV show Humans but the twist in the plot was so unexpected - for some reason I did not realize for quite a while that Hazel was a synth not Henry =)The writing is very exciting and thought provoking. I actually want to read the rest of the series now!

    13. I read this book immediately after finishing Black Rain, ironically enough. Both deal with a future that includes lifelike robots working for humans. And that's where the similarities end.PePr, Inc. is a short story that introduces a world where robots have been created to be the perfect partners for humans. It's a straightforward read with a not-at-all-surprising surprise ending. It was fine, I guess, for the purpose of introducing PePrs and the world, but honestly it didn't interest me enough [...]

    14. Quick read that is different from a lot of books I have read and perfect for the world we live in. Is there really a perfect match out there? For Hazel, it doesn't seem like it. The reader follows along as they learn that a match made by Perfect partners Inc. may not be exactly what we would be looking for. The books is short but interesting and has a sneak peek at more by this author.

    15. This book is a good introduction to the series. I was inclined to give the book three stars initially as it was okay for much of the story, but then there was a significant twist that improved the story.

    16. No formal review, because it would be too spoiler-ific. But this is, in my opinion, a 5 star short story. It is an engaging and accessible take on human/robot relations. No prior sci-fi experience required.I look forward to reading more in the Perfect Partners series.

    17. Perfect ReadI was looking for something quick and this novel was the perfect length with the perfect subject. If you're a fan of the show Humans you'll love Perfect Partners. Can't wait to read more!

    18. Different in good wayI liked the concept so have the short story a try. It was interesting and threw me s curve ball for sure at the end. Too short for much action I plan on getting a full novel set in the perfect partners world.

    19. So sad when humans don't live up to their potential for good. Ann Christy shows us how it should be done.

    20. I am not a big short story fan, but this one, with the plot twist and all, managed to get me intersted and wanting to know more about this series. I will definitely pick it up as soon as possible.

    21. Got the feeling early on who the human was. I guess the moral is don't become so isolated that you will not be missed. Great short

    22. This was a great short story! I'm definitely interested in reading more about the "Perfect" Partners from Ann Christy

    23. I love this whole series. I didn't start at the beginning and it didn't seem to matter. I did read them all, cried for the characters and reread a few- the Dogcatcher was my hands down favorite.
