McEwan’s latest novel, Machines Like Me, does not disappoint – if like me you are a fan of his exquisite story telling, profound messages and beautiful prose, this is the book for you.
Machines Like Me is set in an alternative 1980s London where Thatcher is PM, but we lose the Falklands War and where technology that we, in 2020, are still dreaming up is the norm thanks to Alan Turing.
Charlie invests in an ‘Adam’, the most advanced piece of tech in the form of a ‘human’, that he and his girlfriend Miranda ‘take care of’. Miranda, Charlie and Adam form a strange trio that results in the unravelling of secrets and lies leading McEwan to explore the fascinating concepts of machine consciousness and human morality. Do machines really have the capacity to be truly human? Will they ever? ❤️📚
