A working theory of love by Scott Hutchins

This was initially going to be our July book however as it turns out the paperback edition has not yet been published! You can get this in hardback or on Kindle however if you are keen...

 

Recently divorced, thirty-six-year-old Neill Bassett is engaged in an extraordinary experiment.

By day, he works at a Silicon Valley software company, where he is helping to create the world's first 'living' artificial intelligence -- a computer programme based on the personality of his late father. By night, he is attempting to reconcile his own emotional shortcomings with the unexpected attractions of an intriguing young woman called Rachel. The question is: what does it take to be a real human being?

 

Set in San Francisco, where anything goes (and regularly does), this recklessly witty, formidably funny, outrageously honest novel captures the exquisite agony of contemporary relationships.

    Hi. Would like to recommend Life of Pi by Yann Martel as saw the film recently but have never read the book (which is usually the wrong way round for me!). I thought it would be interesting to see how film and book compare as the film was actually very good. Stephanie.
