I really enjoyed reading this book. From the very beginning of the book the story pulls you in. The world building and character development makes you feel part of the world.
The plot itself was eye-opening. I believe it gives good understanding of where things are heading for us if we decide to ignore the real issues.
Moreover, I learned more than a few things about how politics work. It was definitely more fun than a classroom.
Overall, I highly recommend this book. It's definitely a ride to a more realistic future of our society. Gisela
I truly enjoyed reading The First Robot President, it was a little "I Robot" meets "The Manchurian Candidate". Good imagination on the author's part to put it all together the way he did, made for an easy read. At times I got distracted with conversations between the humans and their virtual assistants. At other times I got a bit perturbed with some of the political satire, as I saw it, again had to reminded myself that it was only the author's views. For this story to be taken place 500 years from now I found it a little hard to believe that some of the current government agencies to be still in place in the year 2524. Ending was surprising, I thought with the ending fast approaching that the president elect was going to have a heart attack during his inauguration and pass away, opening the door for Esmeralda to become president. I much more enjoyed the author's ending. Good job and highly recommend. Fred
I liked this book a lot... it is easy to read... a visionary material that provides a good sense of direction of where society is heading towards technologically... it has humorous details... and is geared towards solutions on pressing issues, for example the risks of an overpopulated planet, unemployment, caring for the Earth and the importance of education, etc. I enjoyed the idea of having a robot as President, to face the challenges with an effective non-biased perspective. Great job! Rebeca Almeida
